Tuby inspires ‘Dales’s thrashing of Heslerton

After a great win in the cup last week, Fylingdales Football Club (FFC) returned to league action with an away tie at mid-table placed Heslerton.

Taking the ball from the left wing, he cut in past three players before striking a beautiful curling shot leaving the Heslerton goalie with no chance.

Heslerton pushed forward in an attempt to equalise and forced an outstanding double save from FFC keeper Neil Brierley who had a top class game throughout.

As the score line suggested FFC just edged the first half but improved further going into the second scoring staright after the break when an excellent run and cross from Jake Faichney was hammered home by Tuby for his second.

With Andy Raw being brought in for bomber Harris FFC continued to brim with energy peppering the Heslerton goal with shots and dominating throughout.

FFCs third goal came as sought after striker Jake Faichney passed two lost defender before unleashing a screamer into the top right from 20 yards.

A quickly taken free kick caused controversy midway through the second half as Andy raw was forced to retake.

Raw curled the resulting free kick over the wall and into the top left of the goal past the stranded goal keeper.

Following this Tuby narrowly missed out on a deserved hat-trick when his low powerful attempt richocheted back off the righthand upright.

Jake Faichney got his second when he volleyed home a Steve Grittiths cross to finish the game 5-0.

The win took FFC up to fourth in the table with a number of games against the top four in the next few weeks.
