Terrific win for Under-18s

South Shields Under-18s pulled off a terrific 4-1 win over reigning league champions Lambton Street in Houghton-le-Spring last night.

The hosts went ahead after dispatching a penalty, but the young Mariners had turned the game on its head by half-time.

They went into the break with a 2-1 lead after excellent team goals scored by Logan Powell and Ryan Bolam.

Two more great goals on the break followed in the second half, with Johny Hope and Matthew Davidson getting on the scoresheet to round off an impressive win.

They now face another tough test when they play host to Norton and Stockton Ancients on Saturday at Perth Green CA, with kick-off at 1.30pm.
