Carr steers United to win

DEBUTANT Zach Bewley was at the double as he earned new Ponteland United manager Robert Carr all three points.
The local lad produced two goals and set up another as he guided his new side to a 3-0 win at Wooler, United dominating the game after the long trip north.
They went into the fixture on the back of a double blow, with Liam Anderson breaking his wrist and Jack L’Argent breaking his arm.
But Carr was able to welcome Billy Holden and Peter Scott back into the fold after time away, while Bewley and teenage goalkeeper Shaun MacDonald were handed their first starts.
And it was Bewley who took the plaudits, opening the scoring on 15 minutes as he and Holden linked up well before he fired into the bottom corner.
After Wooler’s usually deadly striker Luke Strangeways fired a great opportunity over the top, Pont doubled their lead on 35 minutes.
Holden and Bewley again showed a good connection before the latter crossed into the goalmouth, Andrew Davidson on hand to head home after home goalkeeper Allan McKay parried the ball into the air.
The game was wrapped up in the early exchanges of the break, Bewley getting his second of the afternoon by firing Davidson’s return pass past the helpless McKay.
