Back to back league wins for Ashington
Ashington 3Newcastle Benfield 1Ashington made it back to back league wins for the first time in a year when they toppled Newcastle Benfield at Woodhorn Lane, writes Brian Bennett.
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.
