Thanks to Bill Perfitt for official press release.

Injury-hit Priorymen put up spirited showing but still go down to fourth defeat in a row at Whitley Bay

Whitley Bay 3, Guisborough Town 1 (Northern League – Division One)

Despite a spirited performance at an in-form Whitley Bay on Wednesday, Guisborough Town’s wretched run of results continued with their fourth defeat in a row as they slipped to second from bottom of the table.
Three of those defeats have coincidentally ended 3-1 for the Priorymen, who continue to be badly plagued by injuries.
Guisborough sprang a surprise when they drafted in former KGV legend David Onions into the attack and he also signed two more Hartlepool youngsters on loan – attacking midfielder Josh Hawkes and winger Kenton Richardson.
A bright opening again for the Priorymen was undone by a defensive slip that allowed Adam Shanks to open the scoring for Bay after 20 minutes.
Thibault Charmey then equalised for Guisborough just after the half hour but another defensive error allowed Andy Robertson to put the hosts back in front five minutes later and Kyle Fryatt wrapped up the victory for The Seahorses on 66 minutes.
Guisborough were struggling to create many worthwhile chances and on 66 minutes Kyle Fryatt wrapped up all three points for Bay with their third goal.
After the game Town Manager Steve Dowling commented: “I thought we did ok against Whitley Bay and on another day we maybe could have got a result.
“I thought the young full back from Hartlepool Kenton Richardson did very well as did Leon Carling and Liam McPhillips who enjoyed decent games.
“But when you’re struggling you seem to get no luck such as when Dave Onions should have had a penalty after just five minutes.
“I wasn't too downhearted about the result as I thought we performed well. The points will come in good time,” added Dowlo.
For Guisborough’s next game on Saturday, 22 October at the KGV against Padiham in the first round of the FA Vase, the Priorymen will be without Hartlepool loanees Kenton Richardson and Josh Hawkes who are not allowed to play in this competition.
Guisborough will still also be without the injured Chris Youldon, Paul Weldon, Matty Pennal and Paul Roddam while Dave Onions is cup-tied.
