Three wins in five days for New Hartley Juniors

A good week for New Hartley saw them win three games in five days, including a tough 2-0 semi-final win over Durham County Cup winners PrudhoeTown.

After a goalless first half it was defender James Scott who broke the deadlock with a glancing header to put Hartley in front.

And it was not until injury time that Adam Bains doubled Hartley’s lead to put them into Saturday’s final against Lampton Street.

The other two games were both league fixtures, with a 6-3 win at Newcastle Benfield with strikes from Paul Dunn, Kieron Hills, Lewis Robson, Callum Johnston and a Joe Besford double completed the scoring.

Hartley’s third game of the week saw them travel to Newton Aycliffe and again the goals flowed in with a 5-1 win.

A Tom Potter brace followed by Nik Jarvis Smith, Dan Hall and a Nathan Watt strike sealing the points for Hartley.
