Six-a-side is disrupted by 11-a-side matches

WHAT should have been a normal night of action at the Hirst Welfare Centre turned out to be an evening of friendlies apart from two games.

The MB Socca Leagues six-a-side was hit severely by 11-a-side games being played in the area as matches are being played before the dark nights in a bid to avoid a repeat of last season’s fixture congestion due to bad weather over the winter months.

The two games were in division two and a shock result ended V & N Jewellers winning streak as Sparta Hatbreath beat them 3-0.

Sparta played the better football and finally found their shotting boots.

Manager Dan Webb rested himself but was influencial from the sidelines.

The other game saw Red Devils beat Ashington All-Stars 1-0.

The friendlies were full of goals and included a good display from Giles’s Multiple Scoregasms with some excellent finishing.

There is a place in division one for any team wanting to come in at this stage in the season to test the water and see if they are good enough to challenge Real Ashington who are now 18 points clear at the top.
