The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Phil Withers

NUNEATON se­cured a big win against their rel­e­ga­tion ri­vals to spoil Chris Bolder’s Fer­riby party.

The Vil­lagers’ new man­ager will take heart from his side’s first-half dis­play, but it was a dis­ap­point­ing re­sult as Boro dominated the secnd pe­riod.

The first-half was rel­a­tively even though it was Nuneaton who looked the more threat­en­ing.

Fer­riby keeper Ross Dur­rant made two good saves to deny Jordan Nicholson and Brad Gas­coigne.

Fer­riby played some good foot­ball go­ing for­ward but of­fered lit­tle in the way of goal threat.

Nuneaton came out after half-time and im­me­di­ately upped the tempo and to­tally con­trolled the game.

Fer­riby’s mid­field and de­fence worked hard and tire­lessly but Nuneaton’s pace caused prob­lems. Ashley Cham­bers, in par­tic­u­lar, was a hand­ful for Fer­riby’s de­fence.

Tom El­liott opened the scor­ing in the 58th minute. His first-time vol­ley from Ryan Beswick’s cor­ner found the top cor­ner.

Four min­utes later Cham­bers sealed the vic­tory. Fer­riby lost the ball some 30 yards out and the ball reached Cham­bers who drilledin a low shot.

Nuneaton had a num­ber of at­tempts which were ei­ther saved by Dur­rant or missed nar­rowly.

Fer­riby will not com­plain about the re­sult as, once again, they lacked a striker with Cham­bers’ qual­i­ties to worry de­fend­ers.
