Ashington v Newcastle Benfield.

The Colliers had fought back from being a goal behind to win against North Shields the previous week and on Saturday deservedly took all three points in what was a more composed victory.

Ashington took the lead after 32 minutes when a Williamson shot was turned into his own net by Turnbull. But Benfield equalised just a minute later through Brayson.

Six minutes before the interval, Stevens put Ashington in front for a second time and the third goal came courtesy of O’Reilly in the second half to seal the win.
