At long last a proper local derby. Birtley have a great set up and a marvellous surface although for the 1st half not many players wanted to use it!

After a very scrappy start, Birtley took the lead on about 34 mins when a shot from outside the area was deflected and wrong-footed our young keeper. It was then 2-0 just before half-time as a cross was headed in.

We played much better 2nd half and Dan Fullen forced a great save from the home keeper, followed by long range shots from Veitch which the keeper did well to keep out. However, a comeback wasn't to be and a 3rd goal finished the game as a contest. Rutherford played the last 10 minutes with 10 men as injury forced off our 3rd substitute, 10 mins after entering the game.

Thanks for the comments Falcon. Birtley are going through some massive changes at present. I think the progress is evident with a much happier environment on and off the pitch. The players have bought into what we are trying to achieve and know it sometimes isn't a quick process. Likewise we have a great management team and committee now with everyone pulling in the same direction. Relegation last year was a real body blow to the club but hopefully we can pick ourselves up and get the club going again which I am sure we will...

C'mon the hoops....
