Goal Storm Rocks Hull

Denaby United 5, Hull Brunswick 2

Four goals in 15 minutes pulled the fat out of the fire and handed cock-a-hoop Denaby United two well-deserved points from this 5 -2 Yorkshire league win over Hull Brunswick.

Hull were certainly no pushover and they were quick to take advantage of a shaky Denaby defence to grab a 17th minute lead through centre forward Francis Robinson.

A finely judged Ainscough shot from 20 yards put Denaby level 10 minutes later, but Hull were back in the lead after 12 minutes of the second half through a breakaway goal by Robinson again.

Denaby had forced all the pace but somehow hadn’t clicked – until the 65th minute when inside left Kingston capped another fine display, nipping in smartly to cash in on slow defence work by Hull

Too Much

The shock was apparently too much for Brunswick and three minutes later they were again too slow to catch Smith. A Frank Foster penalty after 75 minutes and a quick thrust down the centre by Hall after 80 minutes finalised matters.

Centre forward “Tiger” Hall, making a comeback to the first team, had his best in the game with United and lived up to his nickname as he continually harried the whole defence.

It was good to hear the sound of applause at Tickhill Square again, as the Denaby crowd showed their appreciation at the end of a fine game.
