Redcar Town: Redcar Under-15s entertained Darlington Spraire Lads last Sunday and Darlington scored the first goal through S Healey who was a constant thorn in Redcar's side all day.

Redcar were letting themselves down by too much individual play and this led to Darlington dominating the midfield.

With the game at status quo at half time, the Redcar players were treated to a very rare roasting by the management and after adapting the methods that have took them to the top with a small reshuffle, went on to play better football coming out 12-2 winners after goals from Jonathan Grounds (4),Callum Revely (3), Tom Whaley (2), Michael Traynor, Gavin Jackson, and Danny Kelly. Man of the match was S Healey for Darlington Spraire Lads for his pace, tricks and power.

The second game was a much closer against Tyneside Jnrs, with the Dragonflies hitting the crossbar and post on a number of occasions, finally scoring after a brilliant move which saw Stevie Ramm crossing the ball to Matthew Petts who slotted the ball home. Eventually, against the run of play, Tyneside managed to equilise and the game ended 1-1. Man of the match was Stevie Ramm.
