The promising start to the season now seems a distant memory as Town’s poor run of form continues and they slide toward the relegation zone. The only positive note is that two weeks without a match has given them time to try to put things right. Saturday 21st October: Humber Premier League- Walkington FC 5 – 3 Hornsea Town. Town fell to defeat in the Humber Premier League to a well drilled Walkington side. Two early and almost identical Dean Windass goals put the Seasiders on the back foot early on. With the score not matching the play, Hornsea did control the game for the majority but sloppy individual errors are meaning the lads are leaking goals, a trend that needs to stop soon. A long range left footer from Simon Taylor, a Jez Longley penalty and a well taken effort from Lewis Reeve weren’t quite enough for Town to take anything from the game.

Town succumbed to another defeat as their recent slump continued. A now common trend of leaking goals has yet to come to a halt as Hornsea suffered what felt like the most disappointing loss of a very mixed season. Facing a North Ferriby side struggling at the bottom end of the table, the lads seemed to have more than enough to overcome them and put an end to current poor form but a goal against the run of play seemed to drop heads and although chances came and went, the Seasiders seemed to concede when any real threat came at them. Midfielder and Publicity Officer Sam Burton commented: “With a week off next week the boys really need to work out what’s going wrong quickly. After comfortably winning a league, being in two cup finals and beginning the season up there with the league’s top contenders, you can’t become a poor side overnight.”. Saturday 18th November Hornsea Town v Walkington Match Postponed Problems with the boiler at the Rec meant there were no hot showers so Walkington refused to play! The Reserves are also struggling at the foot of the East Riding County Division Two but did manage to win a penalty shoot out (4-2) after a 3-3 draw away to Little Driffield in the second round of the East Riding Junior Cup on Saturday 18th November. Town have unfortunately had to withdraw the 3rd team from Division 6 The happiest team this season are probably the Veterans who are riding high in the Hull and District Veterans League Division 3, only one point behind the leaders. October 2017 Hornsea Town’s promising start on their return to the Humber Premier League has been followed this month with some disappointing results. Saturday 30th September: Humber Premier League- Hornsea Town 3 – 3 East Riding Rangers Ben Leyland (Sponsored by DW Developments) Lewis Reeve x2 (Sponsored by HPS) After taking the lead in the first minute of the game, Town looked as though they might be on for a comfortable win only to be pegged back by an equaliser against the run of play. Lewis Reeve’s hard work paid off as he went on to grab 2 more first half goals to see Town 3-1 up at half time. A poor second half where Town never really got going and an injury forcing a switch in the shape allowed East Riding a way back into the game and they soon pulled one back for 3-2. The closing moments were tense as Riding piled on the pressure and they finally got the equaliser with almost the last kick of the game to make it what felt like two points dropped for Hornsea. Saturday 7th October. Humber Premier League- Hornsea Town 2 – 4 Reckitts FC. Lewis Reeve (Sponsored by HPS) Ryan Silvestri (Sponsored by 53 Cars) Town suffer a defeat in a real game of two halves. Going 1-0 down in the first minute Hornsea were on the back foot for much of the first half, it didn’t take long for Reckitts to make it two but a Lewis Reeve penalty allowed Town to pull one back against the run of play. Hornsea again switched off in the last minute of the first half which gave Reckitts the 2 goal cushion going in to half time. The second half was a different story. Hornsea came out much more up for it and finally started to win those battles across the park. The lads pulled another goal back as Ryan Silvestri turned in a goal bound shot from Sam Burton, 2-3, and from there Hornsea looked as if they were going to go on to take something. A number of stoppages and bookings slowed the game down somewhat and as Town were pushing on for the equaliser that seemed to be coming, Reckitts broke and got another late into the game to kill Hornsea off. Saturday 14th October: ER Senior Cup- East Riding Rangers 4 – 2 Hornsea Town. Ryan Silvestri x2 (Sponsored by 53 Cars) It’s an early exit in the Senior Cup for Town as a poor performance sees them go down to East Riding. Conceding some very poor goals, Hornsea did not make things easy for themselves. After a disappointing first half and being 2-0 down due to individual mistakes, Hornsea did improve in the second and looked like they could pull it back after a Ryan Silvestri penalty. Some more quick fire goals between the teams ended with Town exiting the cup.
