MATCH REVIEW & PREVIEW
"On Saturday we beat Brandon 1-0 in a hard fought game at Perth Green. With a number of players missing again, this game presented a test for our whole squad. We started the game quite slow but still looked a threat going forward as we were judging the strengths of Brandon. Our task became a whole lot more difficult when Dean Martin was sent off on 11 minutes when he was adjudged to stamped on the Brandon left back. We struggled to get into any meaningful rhythm and both sides had chances. We went in 0-0 at half time. We knew we faced a massive challenge in the second half and that proved to be the case. We got our goal 7 minutes into the second half when a Kieran Featherstone throw was flicked on by Jordon Mellish and Max Kirkham volleyed into the roof of the net from 7 yards. For the remainder of the half we had to withstand a fair amount of pressure with top quality saves by Gary Frater and some top class defending by the back four and the rest of the team. We always looked dangerous on the counter attack and could have added to the goal we got. The game went to 96 minutes which meant we played 85 minutes with ten men. Both Chris, the coaches and myself know exactly what we get consistently from these players and that is a huge desire and an unbelievable work ethic and that is what we got on Saturday. We are so proud of their desire to win the game. Brandon I know will go away and be disappointed they did not win the game as they had a number of chances and a lot of possession. The way we look at this is that all round our work rate and desire won us the game and the 3 points.

On Monday we travel to Alnwick and another difficult game. We have Josh Allan, Nick Quinn, and Davey Fittis injured and Max Kirkham, Matthew McFarlane and Kai Elliott unavailable. We expect to have Stevie Graham, Peter Kane and Kris Allen available again having missed Saturday's game."

Jarrow FC v Alnwick Town FC
Northern League Div 2

Jarrow went into the Bank a holiday clash with Alnwick looking to extend their unbeaten run to 5 games following 4 victories. A number of players were absent due to injuries, work and holiday so the squad was stretched.The match began on a pitch with a considerable slope which Jarrow played up in the first half on a warm and muggy day. The first opportunity came within the first minute as Jarrow applied pressure from the first whistle. The returning Stevie Graham played a 60 yard diagonal ball which found the on-running Jonny Hirst one-on-one with the advancing Alnwick keeper. He attempted to lift the ball over the keepers head from the edge of the box but didn't get enough power on the ball and the keeper turned it round the post. From the resulting corner, with only two minutes on the clock, Hirst found John Murray free front post who half volleyed just wide of the front post. Another out-swinging corner after seven minutes by Hirst again found Murray free. A diving header this time again marginally wide of the front post. Jarrow continued to apply pressure to Alnwick who struggled to get into any rhythm. With 14 minutes on the clock, a switch of play from left to right by Graham fund a Hirst, Hirst checked back onto his left foot and delivered a deep cross from the byline 25 yards out which found the on running Pressling stretching to steer it goal bound from 12 yards out. Alnwick Town produced a good but comfortable save from Gary Frater after 17 minutes from a 20 yard curled shot caught the wind and was tipped over the bar. Jarrow's pressure saw Dean Martin have two shots from outside the box which both went just wide of the Alnwick Town goalkeepers post. In the 34th minute Alnwick Town counter attacked down the right side and a deep cross was delivered to find the Alnwick #10 free back post who connected well from 10 yards but blazed it high and wide. The remaining minutes of the half played out and the teams went in at half time level with deadlock yet to be broken.

HT: Jarrow FC 0 Alnwick Town FC 0

Alnwick had the first meaningful strike of the second half after 50 mins by #8 from 30 yards out which went just wide but had Frater scrambling for it. Jarrow quickly returned with Alex Bone squaring the ball from 12 yards left to right which found Jonny Hirst free. Hirst connected sweetly and the ball was heading int the top right corner but for a superb save by the Alnwick GK to deny a certain goal. With 63 minutes in the clock, Alnwick Town counter attacked Jarrow after dispossessing Hirst on the half way line. The resulting shot went just wide of the Jarrow goal. On 65 minutes captain Mellish was shoved on the edge of the Alnwick box. The result free kick from 25 yards was put just over the bar by Jonny Hirst. Alnwick were coming more into the game and applying pressure to Jarrow and keeper Gary Frater was called into action on 67 minutes with a great reflex double save from a. Close range header and the resulting corner. Returning club captain, Peter Kane came on for the hard working Grant Pressling in the 68th minute. With 15 minutes left on the clock, Sam Attewell had a chance to give Jarrow the lead with a turn and volley from 18 yards which went just over the Alnwick bar following a corner. The remaining 10 minutes of the match saw the Jarrow defence and keeper mount a strong rear-guard action with Alnwick pressing to nick the win, but the Jarrow team withstood for a third clean sheet in a row and a good point on the road against a battling Alnwick Town team.
