Cullercoats U15s in charge of League Cup semi-final

Cullercoats will take a commanding lead into next week’s NEYDL League Cup semi-final second leg thanks to an excellent 3-0 win at Longhoughton on Saturday.

Skipper Aaron Dixon slammed in the opening goal midway through the first half before an excellent finish from David Shipley made it 2-0 at the break.

After the interval it was a close affair with both sides defending well, but Connor Cavens managed to notch a goal on his debut early in the period with a good finish to complete the scoring.

Man of the match for Cullercoats was Luke Taylor who was outstanding at centre half.
