CONSETT 3 WHITLEY BAY 3
After the tragic death of Robbie Livermore less than 48 hours earlier, Whitley gave a performance that the hugely popular Bay legend would have been proud of, holding top of the table Consett to a 3-3 draw on a foggy and bitterly cold afternoon in north west Durham. Before kick off, there was an immaculately observed one minute silence. When the game got underway, it was fitting that the opening goal should come from Craig McFarlane, who played alongside Robbie in the Bay team in 2008 and his emotional celebration clearly showed that he was dedicating the goal to his former team mate.
Consett levelled before half time and with the fog thickening after the interval, they took the lead but Olly Martin made it 2-2 with 14 minutes to go. Chances came at both ends and Consett quickly regained the lead. Whitley were not to be denied though and skipper Peter Glen-Ravenhill’s stunning strike two minutes from time gave them a well deserved draw. Match photos Full report online.
