League leaders take the points

The final game of Thirsk's season was away at league leaders Airedale, who started the game slowly allowing Thirsk to create some half chances and Ben Harrison was able to convert one to secure top scorer for the season. Unfortunately, Airedale woke up and started to complete robustly for every ball, putting increasing pressure on the Thirsk central defenders Michael Crampton, Owen Williams and Jack Devlin and forcing a series of short corners from which they scored 2, plus another before half time.
The second half started well for Thirsk, with Ian Foxley and Sam Kelly having plenty of possession in central midfield, bringing the wide players into the game, but the team were unable to unlock the Airedale defence, despite Will Norman and Connor Wilkinson's best efforts. 2 more goals followed to leave Airedale 5-1 winners in a fairly balanced match.
Thirsk finish 6/14 in the league.
Man of the match and player of the season: Sam Kelly
