Slazengers mens first eleven visited a very strong Hull second team on Saturday which consisted of a number of former national league players with hopes of causing an upset but were outclassed and out muscled by the opposition. It seemed as though the Slazengers players minds were fixed on the huge funfair at the side of the pitch rather than the game and they found themselves 4-0 down after barely 20 minutes.
A change of formation and some strong words seemed to give Slazengers a bit of a kick start and they held their own throughout the remainder of the first half and competed well in the second half only to concede late on to go down 5-0. Slazengers did create some chances, both Jack Kitchen and John Sykes came close and Ben Graham really should have done better when striking at goal from a narrow angle.
Slazengers will hope they have come up against two of the better sides in the league in their first two outings of the season, however whether this is the case will tell in the coming weeks.
