Hebburn complete double over Colliers
Ashington 0Hebburn Town 3Hebbrn Town completed a season’s double over Ashington on Saturday after wrapping up a 3-0 victory at Woodhorn Lane, writes Brian Bennett.
A quick fire double in the opening period from Tom Potter plus a coolly executed chip from substitute Olly Martin 20 minutes from time sealed the win for the promotion hopefuls.
The Colliers - who had arrested a run of eight consecutive defeats the previous week with a 2-0 verdict over Whickham – once again gave their all and were not outplayed but ultimately paid the price for two first half errors when they were looking comfortable.
*On Saturday Ashington are at home to Bishop Auckland (3pm).
