Percy Main 1 Wallington 1


4th draw of the season.....

Apologies for the later than usual Saturday round up, this is due to the unseasonably warm Easter weather which necessitated some unusual (these days anyway) alcohol consumption over the period and another full day spent down at the Percy shack on Monday, when Killi were playing Gosforth Bohemians in the Bill Gardner cup final. (After beating us on pens in the semi that is, so nearly, yet so far)

Wallington always give us a decent game and despite their obvious lack of a full squad, this turned out to be the case again during our latest encounter, even when they went down to 10 men in the second half due to injury. They might've been unlucky with a couple of penalty shouts as well......

Anybody arriving a minute or 2 late for Percy games have normally missed at least 1 goal, (mostly in our net it has to be said) but we nearly got on the mark inside the first minute as Dan Souter, our youngest player on the pitch by some distance tried an audacious lob from way out, which wasn't far away.

It was Dan's 10th appearance since his mid season switch from North Shields Athletic, while in contrast Main keeper Rob Rodgerson was making his 300th appearance for the club, some going really, as past seasons have often had only 28 or 30 league games in them. Rob made his Percy debut as a teenager in 1999, a couple of years before Dan Souter was even born! He hasn't played for Percy Main forever since, but as the stats bear out, that's still a canny achievement!

During that time, Rob's seen 3 promotions, a couple of Benevolent Bowl wins, a Combination cup win, he's ended up in hospital, put goals up, played in a blizzard in a game which lasted 20 minutes, played outfield, scored an equaliser against Ponteland after coming on as sub, replacing the centre forward, played a game and had a post match pint, hours before his wife was due to give birth, cut down trees at Purvis Park....busy times....

Anyway.....Wallington endeavoured and came closest to breaking the deadlock on 19 minutes as Jake Walton had an effort turned around the post by Rodgerson, but Percy Main grew in confidence. Mark McDonnell headed wide from Connor Gales right wing cross and the home side went in front as a quickly taken free kick by Souter found Gales who ran on to fire home from the edge of the area.

Aaron Carr in goal for Wallington saved well from Souter, while at the other end with half time approaching Ben Culling appeared to be upended in the area by Bobby Hamilton, despite the shouts, no penalty said the ref. Seen them given....

The visitors appealed again for a spot kick on 66 minutes for handball by Ryan Laws, again the whistler was unimpressed, while McDonnell chipped over for Percy and Walton saw his free kick well held by Rodgerson.

But Wallington were not to be denied and levelled on 82 minutes as Percy failed to clear their lines and John Paxton profited with a late equaliser fit the visitors.

And that for us, is it for the 2018-19 season, another one that's just flown over!
