A Good Win For the 4ths!
After Saturdays game it was another away fixture which because of an admin error by home team we had to move venues from Newcastle to the Parks at North Shields.
Morpeth started the game with a fluency and determination not seen over previous games. Slick passing and movement of the ball allowed Morpeth to camp in the Jesmond half resulting in Mcdonald slotting shot home through a crowded defence.
This was quickly followed by a direct run from Hinshaw who sent a cross through the D which was converted by a back post strike by Swan. Morpeth were caught on the hop as a long ball from the away team found its way down the field to allow Jesmond to capitalize on a goal.Half time 2-1.
After half time Morpeth missed several oppotunities from penalty corners but the persistent hard work from the midfield paid dividends with Macdonald scoring another two for his hatrick on the day. Both Swan and Taylor showed some great link up play throughout the game which ended 4 -2 to Morpeth.
