Tynedale suffer rare defeat
Published at 07:37, Wednesday, 16 October 2013
WITH no players to look to on the bench, a bare bones Tynedale Hockey Club lost for the first time in over a year.
They went down 4-1 at home to Gateshead III in the North East Hockey Intermediate League on a frustrating afternoon.
The first half was keenly fought with Tom Cant sending home a return pass from Jack Beattie to cancel out a Gateshead opener.
However, the visitors went into the break one goal to the good when they regained the lead.
A scrappy affair ensured after the restart and both teams were guilty of late tackles, Tyne shown three green cards to Beattie, Ant Armstrong and captain James Rainford, while Duncan Douglas was given a yellow and 10 minutes on the side line for back chat.
With Sam Webster’s movement restricted due to injury, Gateshead made the most of the space afforded to push three goals ahead.
After a disappointing defeat, they travel to Morpeth tomorrow in what will be another tough game.

HAVING raised over £1,000 through prize draws, dances, whist drives and donations, Bellingham was able to buy its town hall.
So successful was the fund-raising that when all the debts were cleared more than £100 was left in the fund.
The hall could now be used by the town for all manner of social and public functions.
