A bad day at the office for Town

Morpeth Town 1 Newton Aycliffe 4 Northern League, Division One

A revitalised Newton Aycliffe under the leadership of new manager proved too strong for the Highway Men on Saturday.

The visitors took an early lead in the sixth minute when Winter forced the ball home from close range.

Just before half time, Winter made it 0-2 with a far post header.

On the hour, Henderson fired in a free-kick from distance which took a cruel deflection of Matthew Grieve in the Morpeth wall to give Newton Aycliffe an unassailable lead.

Five minutes later, Garthwaite rounded Karl Dryden in the home goal to make it 0-4.

In the final minute, Steven Anderson scored a consolation goal for the hosts.

Morpeth Town: Dryden, Hiftle (Fry), Novak, Hall, Grieve, Jewels, Taylor, Bell, Forster (Anderson), Chilton (Waugh), Henderson.
