Barton Reserves Upset Hessle In Cup

The Ressies left league action on the back burner this weekend as they made the short trip over to Willerby to take on Hessle Rangers.

Hessle are from the Division above and the reserves faced off against them in the first round of the Whiteheads Fish and Chip Shop Cup!

The game was played on a massive 3G Pitch and there was a shake up in the XI for Barton. Jack Dunn came in to play in goal, and Ben Herrick was up top on his own.

Barton stated brightly and were unlucky not to take the lead in the 5th minute when a glancing header from the free kick of Elliot Sampson was straight at the Hessle Rangers 'keeper.

Hessle had the next chance when they broke clear, the Hessle forward only had keeper Jack Dunn to beat but he stayed big and pulled off a fabulous save at his near post to deny the forward and keep the score at 0-0 in the 18th minute.

Just a minute later the influential Scott Meffen’s long range effort was deflected onto the bar from a Hessle defender.

Barton then took the lead from a well worked set piece through an unlikely goal scorer in Man of the Match Robin Woodforth, who met a Sampson corner at the back post to tower highest and head home.

The Reserves worked tirelessly in their shape on a big pitch to press every time Hessle came into possession.

Hessle came out after the break as the stronger side and were unlucky not to be on level terms after a brilliant solo run and shot from 18 yards out only to see it hit the outside of the post and roll away to safety, much to the Reserves' relief.

Barton made the most of it as they went 2-0 up in the 55th minute after Luke Kershaw won the ball in a 50/50, Meffen played in Ben Herrick with a delightful through ball and Herrick stayed cool to round the keeper and bag his 5th of the season.

Changes were rung and there was a slight shift in shape to cope with the oncoming pressure that Hessle were putting Barton under and Dunn was called into action to pull of another smart save just after the hour.

Brendan O’Callaghan then had a chance to make it three when sent clear but on his weaker right root was wasteful in front of goal.

Hessle were awarded a penalty kick in the 80th minute when Woodforth and Nathan Patchett were adjudged to have sandwiched the Hessle player just inside the box, it was converted with no problems from 12 yards.

That set up a nervous final 10 minutes and needed some courageous defending. Woodforth pulled off a last ditch tackle to deny a strike goal bound effort. Then 17 year old Joe Atkinson blocked an effort in the last minute aswell.

Barton held on to go into the next round were they will face another premier Division side in AFC Walkington.

Manger Liam Graham reflected on his sides impressive victory today. ”Thought the lads responded really well today after a disappointing result last week, it was important that we bounced back with a good performance. The boys ran themselves into the ground today and battled hard to keep shape on a big playing surface. I think a big well done goes to the boys for the attitude and spirit they played in today.”
