Burton Agnes go back to the top

Driffield League review
Driffield League review

Just three games survived in the Driffield and District League, with all the fixtures at Gypsey Road and Matson Road were called off because of waterlogged pitches.

Burton Agnes took full advantage of their rivals’ day off by heading back to the top of the Premier Division.

After a run of back-to-back defeats, Agnes responded with a convincing 6-2 win against Forester Athletic 2nds.

Both teams battled through the wintry conditions. The first half was an even affair as the teams acclimatised until the stroke of half time when Joel Rollinson got in front of his man but was pulled back just inside the 18 yard area.

Danny Robson slotted home the penalty.

Foresters came out the second half and cashed in on their hard work. James Mooney ran through the midfield, the defence pushed him out on his left foot and before the angle got too tight, he scored a left foot shot.

From that moment on, Agnes took control as Dom Richardson ran the show from midfield. Goals came as Kristen Waines and Rollinson, who both grabbed two, then Richardson sealed the man of the match award with a goal.

In Division One, Crown enjoyed their trip to bottom of the table Nafferton United, retuning home with the points after a 9-3 win.

The only other match to go ahead was at Flamborough, whose second team thumped Bridlington Sports Club Reserves 7-1.
