6-4 defeat v Redcar 2s(?)


Too little too late

A strong Redcar line-up were aided by some shoddy Durham defending in a match which was effectively decided in the first half depite a spirited rally in the second half by Durham. On a day when other teams were not playing, Redcar played a high energy midfield who punched holes in our defences to score 4 in the first half. TC provided the main counter-threat scoring a goal in each half through typical combative play on the right.

Redcar had the stronger team but were aided by a suicidal defensive free hit to their forward and later by an unfortunate piece of Durham footwork in the circle which set-up their 6th.

A courageous effort in the secnd half provided a more even contest with goals by Tony, James (neat flick over keeper) and Simon but the Redcar bench always had enough fire-power to maintain an advantage. Pleasing display by Jamie at left back who is gaining confidence and developing well.

Shame about the teas; Jason and James got there first and left nothing for the rest!
