We go down at West End
beaten by a bigger and stronger team who have recruited well
Dean Cope scoring.
For our visit to 2nd top of the league Sunderland West End who move of the top on Friday night when Hebburn Town Res beat South Shield’s Res 4-0
A minutes silence before game for ARTHUR BOND the West End legend that passed away during the week a great friendly man who just talked about the game
Rob Hammond is working Ash Clark is also out but for this tough encounter against a team who have brought several good players in we have Andy Blackburn , Sam Cook and Jack Swales returned to the squad
We trailed 1-0 at the break but fought back to draw level when a Callum Short header came back of the bar for Dean Cope to score West End retook the lead with 15 minutes to go then added a third for a deserved win.
2 goals from Anthony Ross and 1 for Kevin Gordon for the home team.
The home team were bigger and stronger and more physical and kept the pressure on us all game but the young team stuck to the task but to no avail it’s on to Silksworth next week
West End go back to the top but both Redcar and Cleator Moor 5-0 and 3-0 winners yesterday can go back above them with games in hand
Just a brief one off the game today will be back for the game next week
