Blyth School see of Coates

THE Blyth School edged an end to end game against Richard Coates Middle School by the odd goal in five.

Both teams started brightly but it was Blyth who were able to make their possession count when from a corner the ball was flicked on by Marc Grey for Jamie McDonnell to keep his composure and place the ball into the bottom corner.

The visitors came back and Blyth goalkeeper Liam Henderson made a good save but could not stop the rebound going in.

From a free kick for offside, Blyth’s player of the season Liam McKee delivered a ball from his own half that managed to beat every player and find its way into the net to make it 2-1.

James Young did well to put the Richard Coates goalkeeper under pressure and make him miss it.

In the second half in a rare counter attack, Marc Grey was able to head Blyth’s third after good work by Jordan Wright and then a fine cross from Young.

Although Blyth should have then comfortably seen the game out they managed to concede a late penalty.

Although Henderson got a touch on the penalty the power took it in to make the final score 3-2.

Manager Mr Beecroft said: “This is the first season that this team has played together and I think all of the players can be very proud.

“We have put in some great team performances and I am very looking forward to taking this team through to under 14 level next year.”
