No Holme comforts for Town Reserves

Town Reserves were held to a home draw by struggling Holme Rovers in the East Riding County Premier League.

After a promising start, the Reserves went ahead in the 10th minute when Levi Fox latched on to Liam Banks’ through ball and found the net.

However they couldn’t add to their lead, and were made to pay early in the second half. A free kick from the halfway line was sent deep into the Town box and Mark Burke headed in at the back post.

Banks almost restored Bridlington’s lead immediately, but his effort was pushed on to the post.

At the other end, Nick Tudor made a smart save from a quickly-taken free kick and the rebound was fired across goal and wide.

In a frantic 60-second spell, Tudor made a block with his feet and from a quick Town break, Banks was denied by Holme’s replacement keeper, who scrambled back and grabbed the ball under his own crossbar. The visitors then swept upfield straight away and Tudor made another good save, low to his left.

Neither side could find a winner, leaving Town eighth in the table.
