FC Humber United lost 5-0 in their final match of the season against Hall Road Rangers.

It was a wet Tuesday night in Selby and the visitors took their chances effectively while Humber struggled to play a final ball.

The opening quarter of an hour was very balanced with both teams having minor chances none of which were particularly threatening for Ben Saynor or Haydn Withill.

Humber had the first real chance of the game when Adam Baskerville had a powerful shot hit the post before being fumbled away by the visitor’s defence.

However, it was Hall Road who scored first when Henry Curtis scored just after the half-hour mark by tapping into an empty net.

Humber responded well to conceding and had several chances with the closest coming from Alex O’Connor.

Hall Road snatched a second goal just before the interval when Jacob Galloway headed home a Chris Spinks corner.

Early in the second half George Green went on a surging run for Humber before taking a shot in the box which went narrowly wide.

The away side tripled their lead through another header from a corner this time by James Piercy with Spinks being the provider again.

Humber nearly got a spectacular goal to try and get something out of the game when a 35-yard Green free-kick forced a good save out of Withill.

This proved to be yet another false dawn for Humber however as Hall Road made it 4-0 through substitute Joe McFadyen.

Not long after Hall Road scored a fifth and final goal of the game when McFadyen got his second by capitalising on a mistake at the back by Humber.

Now there will be an anxious wait for Humber to see if they will be reprieved of relegation and be playing in step 6 next season.
