Terriers still smarting from there unfortunate 2-1 defeat at Billingham Synthonia in midweek got back on the winning trail with a comfortable 2-1 victory over Esh Winning.

The game itself never reached any great heights with the Terriers always in command against a side at the bottom of the league.

The opening half was dominated by Bedlington who cruised into the lead with goals from Tyler Scarfe and Liam Clarke in a one sided opening half.

After the break Terriers continued to control the play but failed to take advantage of goal scoring chances created with Lee Scott missing a penalty.

Esh Winning rarely troubled the Terriers defence but gained a consolation goal late in the game scored by Lee Best to end a disapointing game.

However Manager Paddy Atkinson having to field a much weakened side was happy to pick up maximun points which move the Northumberland club into a higher League position.

Last saturday evening Bedlington held a football talk in with guest speakers BBC commentator and presenter Guy Mowbray and former Middlesborough star Andy Campbell hosting the show.

A good turn out were treated to many interesting football stories the two speakers doing a great job.

Bedlington chairman Ronan Liddane stated Guy and Andy deserve great credit for travelling here to help the club and there efforts were appreciated.
