Two late goals, from new signing Kyle Patton after 79 minutes and Adam Shanks in stoppage time, were not enough to rescue a point in a local derby that North Shields dominated until the later stages. The Robins scored twice midway through the first half and added a third after 66 minutes. With Marske beating West Auckland 5-2,¬†Whitley drop one place to 8th in the table. Full report to follow.

Music Night in the Seahorse:
Last night was a huge success, much fun was had by ALL when Dave Weston took to the stage to provide his audience with some fantastic renditions of some 50s/60s classics, there was even a chance to boogie on the dance floor. ¬†There was never a dull moment as special thanks need to be made to the wonderful Doug Parker for organising such a wonderful evening and his fantastic wife Jean Parker for putting on an evening full of entertainment. ¬†There was plenty of cash to be won on the Bingo and awesome prizes to be had on the raffle. ¬†Gratitude‚Äôs don‚Äôt just end there, we need not forget the bar staff for their great hospitality, they worked so hard to ensure that everyone was kept happy. ¬†Lets hope we can have more of these great events such as the one we witnessed last night. ¬†It‚Äôs a fantastic way to raise money as way to better and develop Whitley Bay Football Club for many years to come.
