NUNTHORPE Under-7s came out the winners in an entertaining TJFA League Cup match against Billingham.

In their first outing this season, Andy Harkin's Nunthorpe outfit found themselves 2-1 down at half-time as Billingham put the home side under pressure, with a number of quick breaks.

However, in the second half, Nunthorpe turned on the style and scored a succession of goals from free-flowing attacks. Billingham did not allow their heads to drop, however, and although the victory was beyond them they remained competitive and a credit to their coaches to the end.
