Hull City Res 6 Denaby 2

A strong Hull city reserves beat Denaby United 6-2 at Boothferry Park in Saturday’s Midland league fixture.

The experienced Hull forward line had the Denaby defence at full stretch and Smith put Hull ahead in the eighth minute.

Bulless increased their lead after Dixon had gone near for United, then a minute later, scored again and 3-0 was the score at half-time.

Dixon reduced the leeway in the second half, but Gerrie, Ackerman, senior side leading scorer, and Smith scored again for Hall before Walker got Denaby’s second goal.
