A quick return to face Newcastle Uni is up for us next, this time for a league game.

Our hosts are in marvellous form, winning 13 games in a row and last weekend they beat Whitley Bay A 3-2. And in that run was the semi final where we lost 5-1 that was played in a blizzard.

Our own form has deserted us although performances are certainly better than results. We haven't scored a league goal in 2018 which is a crazy stat, but luck will turn soon I'm sure and a goal will fly in off someone's backside!

Kick off on Wednesday is planned for 7pm on the 3G pitch at Coach Lane, NE12 8AD

Newcastle Uni 6-0 Rutherford

It's not often I rate performances as 10/10 but this was one of them; our hosts were simply electric.

Played on a 3G pitch the game was fast with every pass true and inch perfect, and we found ourselves 3-0 down inside 30 mins courtesy of a hattrick from their No.9.

A 4th goal was scored before the break and we could quite easily have thrown the towel in but we didn't. In fact, we defended well for long periods against easily the best team in the league. 2 late goals finished us off but we still managed to create some efforts on goal.

But as mentioned, this team we were up against is easily at a standard way above this level and, as their run now stands at 14 straight wins, they're surely hot favourites to win the League.

But it's not just on the pitch, it's off the pitch too where they have class. All of them are top lads with dignity and respect for opposition. Best wishes to them in their quest for silverware and for promotion to the Northern League.
