Bridlington Town Reserves eased to victory in their first home game of the East Riding County League season.

But like in their first game at North Cave, they had to come from behind to claim the points.

Town started slowly against Eddie Beedle and keeper Marc Wain was called into action making an early save. However, they continued to allow the visitors too much space and Luke Power gave the Hull side the lead.

This jolted Town into action and Louis Gregory headed wide and Chris Eyres shot past the post.

Town’s wide men Louis Rafter and Matthew Richardson started to run at Beedle’s full backs and deliver excellent crosses and eventually Town equalised when Richardson latched on to Rafter’s lay off and Richardson found the corner of the net.

The hosts had more chances before the break but Liam Fraser’s free kick was blocked twice from the edge of the box and Eyre headed wide.

Town took the lead from a corner early in the second half when Dale Wain’s header bounced back off the bar to Eyre’s feet and he slotted home.

Beedle’s keeper was kept very busy. Eyre, Fraser and Richardson all went close and Tom Benninger hit the crossbar.

But the inevitable third goal arrived when Josh Barnes got on to a ball flashed across goal and finished well.

Beedle swapped goalkeepers but Town couldn’t find a way past the replacement number one.

Next up for the Reserves is a trip to Sculcoates Reserves.
