Cliffe FC dominated the match from start to finish but Selby Unicorn held off the early onslaught until Ryan Sedman ghosted into the box and opened scoring to make it 0-1 after 15 minutes. A powerful Andy Addison made it 2-0 from a corner and Simon Houlder – on his first outing in a Cliffe shirt – made it 3-0 before the break via another header from a corner, HT.
Cliffe swapped and changed their side throughout the second half and another new signing got on the score sheet, Tom Grundy slamming the ball home from close range for 4-0. Sedman completed scoring and secured his man-of-the-match award by making it 5-0, scoring from the edge of the box. Unicorn nabbed a goal in the late stages from a decent set-piece and header to make the final score 5-1.
