BLYTH Spartans Under-15s started off like a train in their game against Whitley Bay at the weekend.

And when they finally went 1-0 up through Liam Wall after about ten minutes, the result was never in doubt.

Two more goals, first from a through ball by Ayrton Browning that found Samuel Johnson, then moments later when James Gillie found Johnson again, made it 3-0 at the break.

With a host changes at half-time, Spartans started the second half in the same vain with Wall adding his second and the team’s fourth.

The home side’s fifth goal came from an unlikely source with Joe Brooks converting a well taken corner.

Johnson turned provider for the sixth after a fine run and cross found Wall in the centre for his third.

After a momentary lapse in the defence Whitley did get a consolation goal, but the scoring was finished off by Jack Harding, who this season has had his best return in front of goal.

The man of the match award for Blyth went to Alex Robinson for his tireless work all game.

The win secured promotion for Blyth and with three games left the destiny of the title still remains firmly in their own hands.
