North Shields Athletic 4 Rutherford AFC 1

Played on an excellent artificial surface, we came out of the blocks well despite having only 11 players at kick-off time due to delays and car breakdown. Athletic always looked dangerous going forward and went in front midway through the first half from a corner. We hit the woodwork twice and saw some excellent goalkeeping from the home custodian before Zak Atkinson equalised virtually on half time.

Another brilliant save from a Chris Garwood header kept us out early in the second period and within a minute Shields went back in front. From this point the hosts began to dominate and played some great stuff, scoring twice more, the last goal a superb 25 yard strike.

The best team over the 90 minutes won, but our pre-match preparation was poor and didn't help us at all although there was a couple of very good individual performances. Xmas break and hopefully we can come back refreshed and ready to go again.
