Glen Taylor took his goals tally for the season to 21 after notching a brace against Newton Aycliffe in the semi-final of the Brooks Mileson Memorial League Cup at Woodhorn Lane on Tuesday night.

He said: “I was happy with our win on Saturday against Celtic Nation but disappointed that I didn’t score, so I’m over the moon tonight.

“To get the win and another couple of goals, it’s happy days.

“Against the wind in the first half I was playing in the ‘hole’, so it was a bit more of a defensive role for me because the ball wasn’t travelling that far and I had to try and win the flick-ons.

“For the first it was a good ball played across to me and I swung a left foot at it and was delighted to see it go in, whilst for the second one I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time, and really, I need to score more of those types of goals.”

Taylor believed his side were full value for the win.

“We were one-nil up at half-time after playing against the wind,” he added.

“I thought it would be one way traffic for us after the break and they did well to come back into the game to be fair but I thought we deserved our win on the night.”
