Hall Road up and running after victory over Goole

Hall Road Rangers got their pre-season campaign off to a winning start with a hard earned 2-1 win over Goole.

In their first outing of pre-season the first half lacked any real quality and the difference proved to be the clinical finishing of the visitors.

Czubik drifted clear of the Rangers defence on just six minutes and his cross goal effort nestled into the bottom left corner to give the visitors an early lead.

Rangers missed their best chance of the first half when Chris Spinks rattled the woodwork from the penalty spot after Josh Batty was downed in the penalty area.

With this Rangers first game since the April win at Campion, the only other opportunity they got was on 33 minutes, as Conner Harman slipped through the midfield to fire straight at Goole’s goalkeeper as the hosts trailed at the break.

Josh Batty, the two goal hero at Campion failed to convert his far post header four minutes into the second half, as Harman found him unmarked eight yards from goal.

Hall Road made some changes and introduced Gareth Owen shortly after, and it was the former Bridlington man that took his chance to equalise, delicately lofting the ball over the Goole keeper on 62 minutes.

The game was won from an unlikely goal source eight minutes later. Chris Spinks centre was fumbled and as Goole failed to clear, right-back Sam Belcher knocked home to nudge Hall Road in front.
