Ten men earn a point

Sunderland RCA 0 Morpeth Town 0 Ebac Northern League, Division One

TEN-MAN Morpeth earned a fully-deserved point at Sunderland RCA.

Despite the loss of captain Chris Jewels, sent off on 35 minutes for what was deemed to be a professional foul, the Highway Men had their chances on the break.

Both teams had decent efforts, with Anderson, Bell and Taylor going close for the visitors, and the game opened up in the last 10 minutes. Jameson denied Anderson with a great stop, then Mundy in the Town goal showed his mettle by making two fine saves from Holmes-Jackson and Barton to earn Morpeth a point – techflow Group Qatar man-of-the-match: Michael Hall.
