North Ferriby win first ever game as phoenix club over Premier League U23s side

North Ferriby last night played their first ever match as a phoenix club, just months after their former club folded.

On the 15th of March, the Villagers said goodbye to their side, after they were wound-up at a court hearing this morning, consequently 85 years of history has ended.

They wrote that day: “Our biggest thank you’s are to you, the supporters. You have helped to make this club arguably the friendliest in non league. Most importantly, you have given your support to the team, no matter where we sit in the table. We love each and every one of you. Thank you so much.”

Since that day, there was hard work to bring football back to North Ferriby with the help of their former club’s chairman Les Hare.

The new side was quickly created with Chris Bolder a former Hull City, Grimsby Town, Ossett Town, Guiseley and Scarborough Athletic player who also spent seven seasons in two spells with North Ferriby United, appointed as their new manager and ex player Paul Robson as assistant manager.

Signings were unveiled, a few changes around their ground made over the summer and now pre-season is all of a sudden in full swing.

A crowd claimed to be over 500 turned up to Grange Lane to watch the side’s first game against a young fielded Sheffield United side.

The only goal of the game came from the hosts’ Dan Nichols after just one minute on the clock. Check out the special moment in the video below…


North Ferriby’s keeper produced some cracking saves to keep his side ahead, at one point in the first half the post was struck.

Despite the visitors applying pressure towards the end of the second half, they couldn’t find an equaliser and the Villagers came out victorious.
