Cragside 4 - 3 Dr Tomlinson Rothbury- U11 Football Match Report by Mr Beck and Mr Dickinson
 
Cragside recorded their second successive league win on Tuesday when they hosted Dr Tomlinson Middle school. Cragside were on the front foot throughout the first half and had many chances to take the lead. Dan Scott managed to break the deadlock with a smashing first half penalty into the top left corner. Cragside doubled their lead before half time when Dan smashed the crossbar from 30 yards allowing Laila Wallace to score a tap in from a couple of yards. In the second half the visitors managed to peg the game back with two counter attack goals. Cragside, however, were not going to let up and continued to mount attacks at the visiting defence. Dan managed to bag another two goals to restore the two goal cushion. Dr Tomlinson were happy to grab a last minute consolation goal to finish off the game. Player of the match went to Dan Scott who was in terrific form throughout and managed his first school hat-trick
