Gateshead 3s Vs Jesmond 2s

New Kit, Same Result

With the usual availability problems plaguing the club this year and Chapman promoted to the 1s, Pearson Promoted to the 2s and injuries to B, Wilson and Basey, meant the 3s were light on numbers until the 11th hour. As usual the 4s provided the numbers, Teaser, McMahon, Lewis and Daniels filled the breach.

A new kit made its debut allowing Gateshead to look like a cohesive team, rather than the rag tag of different tops of the previous years.

As usual Gateshead started the high tempo manner they always do with Read bossing the midfield in partnership with Wong who playing in central midfield for the first time did a decent job. The organised defence of Jesmond frustrated and broke up the attacks then countered with good passing moves. Gateshead were unfortunate to go into half time 2-0 down after a battling display

The second half saw Jesmond continue their good defensive display cancelling out Christie at every opportunity who was never really in the game. Although the midfield and defence worked hard and played some good hockey it was not our day, 2 more goals from Jesmond wrapped up a 4-0 win for them which on another day could have easily been a Gateshead win. Read finished the game with another resounding man of the match with some good displayes from K. McMahon, Wong, Watts and Bowens as well as some fine saves from Lewis in goal.

Although we have not won a game this season the potential is there, we have played some of the league leaders and could have had a result against them. This is a close league in ability and we will not go down without a fight. Lets Get our game on Gateshead and start climbing this table like we know we can
