Town score four but still lose

Whitehaven 6 Morpeth Town 4 Northern League, Division Two

MORPETH were in good goal-scoring form but defensive problems meant they still lost this match.

The visitors led 2-1 and 3-2, however their Cumbrian opponents were also dangerous going forward and both times they were pegged back.

Whitehaven then took advantage of a dominant spell to build a 6-3 lead and although Town scored again, it turned out to only be a consolation.

Morpeth face two away fixtures this week. On Saturday they take on Chester-le-Street and on Tuesday they play Marske United.
