Steeton 1 Settle 6
Steeton crashed to a heavy defeat against Settle last night, despite the visitors boosting their ranks with a few Barnoldswick players, the home side were poor in the first half and in truth created very little to trouble Sam Arrowsmith in the Settle goal. At the back the marking from set pieces was woeful and debutant keeper Sean Cullen was left exposed on numerous occasions, Cullen had a night to forget as he conceeded a late penalty as half time approached and the Craven side found themselves 6-0 up at the break.
A half time rocket saw Steeton come out with a much better frame of mind and attitude and second half keeper, Josh Brooksbank had little to do in the second period, bar a great one handed save in the closing minutes.
Josh Metcalfe continued his good pre season form with a well taken goal.
Roy Mason will be now looking for a response from the players in the final pre season game on Friday when Steeton entertain Skipton LMS. Kick off is 6.30pm
