A new season, the arrival of new players, a new Barmby Moor kit - kindly sponsored by JP Shepherdson Builders - and a performance against Ouseburn that almost secured all three points.

A degree of tension always surrounds the first game of a new season and both sides displayed a cautious approach to a first period in which Curtis Barker came closest to unlocking the deadlock.

A 0-0 scoreline is unusual in local football and, despite Barker and Tatterton having good chances in the second period, plus long-range efforts by Beevers and Travers, the draw always looked on the cards.

If Barmby’s defensive quality can continue next week, against Fulford, then hopefully the first win of the season can be achieved against great opponents.
