Green: Brilliant To Win The Trophy

14 July 2021

Hull City Under-23s midfielder Oliver Green was delighted to win the Billy Bly Memorial Trophy after a 3-1 victory over North Ferriby.

Despite falling behind, goals from Louis Beckett, McCauley Snelgrove and Josh Hinds secured the Tigers victory in their first pre-season fixture.

“I’m happy with the victory and it’s brilliant to win the trophy,” said Green.

“I don’t think the result shows how well we played against a good men’s team in North Ferriby.

“We had four or five really good chances in the first half and another four or five good chances in the second half, and I think we have to be more clinical in the final third going forward.

“I enjoyed the battle in midfield and I thought it was a good test. I felt, with us playing against men, I had to play with fewer touches.

“I had to move the ball quicker and be more direct and I think I coped with the challenge and played quite well. 

“It’s a great start for us. It’s our first trophy of the year and I hope we can continue the momentum by winning the league and any cups we compete in. I want to get more game time for the Under-23s and show what I’m capable of.”
