Brilliant Brooklyn hit Ryedale rivals for six
3:40pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in Sport
Chris Seager and Mikey Brown both fired hat-tricks for the visitors to continue their decent start to the campaign.
Chuffed Brooklyn manager Matty Hood said: “I was delighted again with how the squad did their jobs exactly how we had asked.
“We mixed it up very well with three goals coming from open play and the others from set-pieces.
“We must continue to knuckle down after this superb derby victory and turn our attention to the match against Pocklington on Saturday.”
The game was evenly matched for the first 15 minutes with neither goalkeeper being tested, but Brooklyn began to get a grip of proceedings, showing signs of getting in behind the experienced home defence.
M&N’s Liam Burdett was the first to strike at goal, though, clipping a post from 35 yards out.
The breakthrough came on 20 minutes. A long throw from Brown was flicked on by Sean Walker for Seager to knock it home – the move having been rehearsed just an hour before kick off.
The second soon followed with Brooklyn starting to dominate in all areas – Andrew Philips’ inch-perfect cross headed in by Brown.
Brooklyn’s back four remained solid with Mathew Webster, Karl Richardson, man-of-the-match Sean Walker and Neil Alexander all putting in good displays.
Seager grabbed his second before the interval after a tremendous burst of pace from Philips allowed him to cut inside and provide the chance from 12 yards.
Another close-range header by Brown after another Philips cross put the away side out of sight on the resumption, leaving Malton & Norton deflated.
Brooklyn’s midfield five of Philips, Chris Hudson, Steven Clay, Seager and Brown thereafter won their individual battles, while David Thompson led the line well, with Seager netting his third goal after Clay’s corner was headed across the face of goal by Hudson.
The home side claimed a consolation through Matti Reeves’ long-range strike, but Brooklyn substitute Jonny Dunning quickly made an impact at the other end, intercepting an M&N pass and feeding Brown, who flicked the ball in off a post from a tight angle to round off a telling victory.
