MATCH REPORT: Pocklington Town 1sts 3 - 1 Hessle Sporting Club

The latest match report from Pocklington Town A.F.C

Pock were in action at home in the League cup last Saturday against a Hessle team going well in the division below and took a 1 - 0 lead from Ryan Caulfield. Despite both sides working it hard, Pock held a narrow advantage after the break until Hesle levelled up on the hour.

Pock stuck to their game and another Caulfield strike, this time from a 25 yard free kick after a foul on Dunham, saw them regain the lead before a Stu Lawson header from a corner sealed progress into round 3. The team have no game this weekend.


Towns second string recorded a confidence boosting first win of the season away against a handy Osbaldwick side last weekend when goals from Adam Falkingham and Sam Shipley saw them win by the odd goal in three after a hard fought game. The lads return to home action this Saturday when they take on Stamford Bridge.


In what is always a close game between two well matched teams, a keenly fought contest saw Town edge out the visitors thanks to a Jason Nattrass cross that was forced home by Matty Wright in the second half as Town stood firm against strong Dunnington attacks. The lads are at home again this Saturday with a game against Rufforth Reserves.


The clubs 4th team went down 8-0 away at Brandesburton AFC Reserves last weekend on a day when too many of Towns promising youngsters were unable to compete against what was a strengthened Brandesburton team.

It was disappointing that the home side choose to play as many of their Humber Division 1 team as they did but although this was a tough result to take, the lads need to learn how to stick to their game plan and keep working hard when things go against them.

There were highlights in the game and Dan Croft and Andy Macari both were unlucky not to score but overall, the team will need to bounce back with a tough away trip to Withernsea in the League Cup this Saturday.
