WHITLEY BAY 0 NORTH SHIELDS 3
Whitley produced a disappointing performance in their local derby against North Shields. On a bitterly cold afternoon, the first half ended goal less but after the interval the weather deteriorated rapidly. Kieran Brannen struck the post for Whitley with a fierce shot before Shields went ahead ten minutes after the resumption through McRoberts. In appalling conditions with driving hail, sleet and rain, it looked as if that would be the only goal of the game but visitors’ substitute Gary Day capitalised on defensive errors twice in the last five minutes to give the final score a somewhat flattering look. Full report, manager’s thoughts and match photos now online.
We would like to thank everyone from both clubs who contributed so generously to the collection for The Bay Foodbank. This was a superb display of unity on derby day!
Thanks also to all those who braved the horrendous weather to attend The Supporters Club Christmas Party on Saturday evening.
Fixture change: Our game at home to Consett has been moved from Saturday 2 March to Saturday 23 March.
*Our next game is away to Seaham Red Star on Saturday.

Mick Mulhern gave his thoughts on Saturday’s derby defeat at Hillheads “I was disappointed we didn’t respond as I’d have expected after the excellent performance at Ryhope on Tuesday night. It’s a lack of consistency that’s been our problem all season, we take one big step forward then one back. [...]
