Whitley Bay & Tynemouth Men’s Firsts went into the penultimate weekend with a double header looking to add to their five game winning streak.

On Saturday they travelled to Ben Rhydding who are fighting for survival at the bottom of the table.

Tyne took an early lead when Alex Lockey fired home from a tight angle after a passing move, and the lead was doubled soon after when Markus Baeder scored from a rebound at a short corner.

Thye made it 3-0 in the opening minutes of the second half through Chris Traynor before the hosts pulled one back almost immediately.

Hector Hall slide in to give Tyne a 4-1 lead before Ben Rhydding hit two quick goals but Tyne held on to win 4-3.

The following day Tyne faced Timperley at home, taking an early lead through a Chris Traynor penalty stroke.

Tyne calved out many chances but could not add to their lead and Timperley equalised from a penalty corner.

The home team piled on more pressure and Redpath was found unmarked on the penalty spot to regain the lead.

In the second half Tyne had virtually all the possession but missed a number of clear cut chances before Alex Lockey finally scored the third.

Timperley pulled one back before Hall killed the game off to give Tyne their seventh win in a row.

Whitley Bay’s second team visited Newcastle University to take on their second team and started strongly, opening the scoring through William Stanyard from a short corner.

Stanyard added his second soon after before being reduced to ten when Nathaniel Ray was shown a yellow card for dangerous play, the University taking advantage to reduce the deficit before half time.

Whitley Bay started the second half quickly and scored a third goal through William Smith, and they added two more goals through Daniel Jones and Tom Dolman before the hosts scored a late consolation goal.
