Leaders too strong for Albion

RYTON and Crawcrook Albion go into 2014 propping the rest of the Northern League up.

They were thumped 6-1 by league leaders North Shields in their latest outing which cemented their place rock bottom of Division Two after picking up 12 points from a possible 75.

They were given hope of pulling off a shock on 22 minutes when Scott Gunn tapped home his fifth of the season to give Ryton the lead.

But they went into the break trailing 2-1, the prolific Gareth Bainbridge and Dean Walker overturning the deficit.

It started to go downhill on 51 minutes when Dean Holmes made it 3-1, the same player registering again soon after in between further strikes from Bainbridge as he completed his hat-trick.

While Ryton are just two points off second bottom Esh Winning with a game in hand, they are seven adrift of third bottom Thornaby and have played two games more.
