New Hartley Juniors warm up for cup final with win

After a 2-1 midweek defeat at lowly Ryhope, New Hartley Juniors bounced back to winning ways with a 1-0 win at home over a decent South Shields outfit.

The only goal of the game came from the penalty spot with Marcus McCreedy tucking home the kick midway through the second half.

On Thursday night (March 26), New Hartley take on Benfield in the final of the NFA Junior Cup at Blue Flames with a 7pm kick-off.
