Unwanted hat-trick for Ashington
Stockton Town 2Ashington 0Ashington completed an unwanted hat-trick on Saturday when they went down against Stockton Town, writes Brian Bennett.
A goal shortly before half time from Fred Woodhouse and a deflected effort from full back Dan McWilliams quarter of an hour from full time sealed the win for the Ebac Northern League first division leaders and promotion favourites.
However, despite the reverse, the Colliers – who tumbled out of the FA Vase and also lost a group match in the League Cup at the Bishopton Road West ground – should take heart after what was an encouraging performance.
*On Saturday, Ashington are away to Newcastle Benfield (3pm).
