Devastating Danny Earl becomes third player in Town’s history to score 40 goals in single season

Sunderland RCA 0, Guisborough Town 4
(Ebac Northern League Division One – Thursday, 5 May 2016)

A superb Danny Earl hat-trick earned Guisborough Town a stunning 4-0 win at Sunderland RCA on Thursday and strengthened further their hopes of finishing at least third in the Northern League Division One table.

Danny’s latest three goals brought his tally for the season to an amazing 40 to be-come only the third player in Guisborough Town’s history to reach 40 goals in a sea-son after Danny Johnson (59) and Mikey Roberts (46) in that memorable 2013/14 season.

In only his second season with the Priorymen, Earl now becomes Guisborough’s seventh highest all-time Guisborough top scorer after Mark Davis (342), David On-ions (94), Luke Bythway (85), Mikey Roberts (82), Neil Hodgson (79) and Darren Mowbray (78).

Playing their 11th game in only 16 days (YES 16 DAYS!!) of a crazily crowded fixture list due to the appalling wet winter, Guisborough went about their challenge at Sun-derland RCA with renewed energy and enthusiasm - despite the disappointing 1-0 defeat just two days earlier against Durham City.

Earl opened the scoring against RCA after 16 minutes when he coolly finished at the near post. Ten minutes later Paul Roddam, revelling in a new position for him at left back, made it 2-0 finishing off a brilliant move down the left involving Pete Bulmer and – who else? – Danny Earl!

The game was flowing entertainingly end to end and both RCA and the Priorymen saw chances going begging, Earl made the three points safe for Guisborough on the hour mark when he fired home following a Connor Smith low cross for 3-0.

And Earl, easily Town’s leading scorer this season, completed a super hat-trick on 90 minutes when he stole the ball off RCA ‘keeper McCullough and lobbed him to make it 4-0 to Guisborough.

After the game an absolutely delighted Guisborough Manager Steve Dowling com-mented: “After a gruelling run of seven games in 13 days you could be forgiven for thinking that my players would struggle in this latest game against RCA.

“But far from it we started well and after a good Danny Earl finish Paul Roddam, playing in an unaccustomed left wing back position, increased our lead and went on to enjoy a great game in his new position.

“In the second half we had to defend a fair bit more but Nick Liversedge in our goal was never really troubled and two more good finishes from Danny Earl completed our scoring and his hat-trick.


“There were good performances throughout the team tonight particularly from Leon Carling, Jordan Galloway and the excellent Andrew May as well as Roddam in his unfamiliar new position.

“Young Anthony Snook had another good game at right wing back and I thought our midfield three of Gary Wood, Pete Bulmer and Paul Blake enjoyed excellent games also.

“With Connor Smith and Danny Earl running the RCA defence ragged it was a great result following the disappointment of Tuesday’s defeat against Durham - in my opinion a match that should never have been played and which may ultimately cost us places in the league table.

“However, what was perhaps most pleasing about the performance against RCA was that we had first team regulars like Ste Snaith, Danny McWilliams, Curtis Round and Jonny Helm missing yet we still produced a terrific all-round team performance and result.

“We are now off to do some warm weather training in Nottingham in preparation for our big North Riding Senior Cup game against Middlesbrough at the KGV next Monday night,” added Dowlo, who not surprisingly named Danny Earl as his man of the match.
