Tyne Men first team hosted York City on Saturday in North Shields and conceded a last minute equaliser.

York started brighter and made use of their pacey forwards when breaking at speed from midfield.

But despite threatening they struggled to create meaningful chances, which proved costly as Tyne opened the scoring from a penalty corner from Phil Ithurralde.

They doubled their lead moments later when Andy Titmus finished off a fine team move.

York still pushed forward and their endeavour paid off on the stroke of half-time as they pulled a goal back with a low drag flick from a penalty corner.

The visitors started the second half brightly and the pressure told as they equalised.

Tyne needed to get back in the game and steady the ship and half way through the second half they started to find their passes and control possession.

Titmus was released after a quick break on the York goal and was brought down by the keeper. A penalty flick was awarded and Murray Fotheringham stepped up and finished low into the corner to again give Tyne the lead at 3-2.

Tyne pushed for a fourth and Simon Miles twice had shots glide inches wide with the keeper beaten.

But in a repeat of the first half York won a penalty corner with seconds left and they levelled to make the final score 3-3.
