Blyth Town made the trip to Wallington on Saturday and avenged an early season defeat with an impressive 5-0 win.

The visitors travelled with a depleted squad due to an horrendous injury list with Wallington able to call on a fully fit squad for the first time for four months.

Blyth started brightly and created numerous chances.

On 20 minutes Blyth broke the deadlock with Michael Morien calmly putting the ball past the home keeper after great work from Robinson.

It took Blyth to the 44th minute to double the lead with Lee holding off a defender to allow another though ball from Robinson to allow Morien to smash a 15-yard thunderbolt past the keeper.

Blyth started the second half against the wind and again made all the chances.

A quick break from Morien saw him put a cross in for Robinson to score, then five minutes later another break from Morien saw Atkinson score the fourth.

To round off a great performance, Connor Andrews scored a wonder goal beating four players before calmly slotting the ball past the advancing keeper.

Manager Michael Connor was full of admiration for his team.

“After the poor display against Shankhouse the week before we responded brilliantly with Wallington unable to break us down and our attacking players creating so many goal scoring chances it sets us up for the game against Redhouse Farm at home next Saturday,” he said.
