Ashington Ladies dumped out of Northumberland Senior Cup

Ashington Woodhorn Lane Ladies crashed out the Northumberland Senior Cup on Sunday at the quarter-final stage at Kingsley Park against Tynedale Ladies, their higher league opponents.

Ashington fell behind on 27 minutes and the hosts added another five minutes later to take a 2-0 lead at half-time.

A mistake by Jade Gibbs saw Tynedale score a third on 47 minutes, but Ashington came back and Karen Wright netted from Laura Jobson’s corner with a spectacular overhead kick.

The home side went 4-1 up on 58 minutes and struck the fifth shortly afterwards, but the Ashington girls never gave up and Megan Tighe latched on to Jobson’s through ball and slotted home to make it 5-2.
