WHITLEY Bay Real returned to league action on Sunday with an away trip up the Tyne Valley to play Corbridge United.
Still missing players through injury, Real played simple football to put this game away early.
Strong midfield play led by Donahoe and Collins set the tone for the game with leading scorer Graham as lively as ever.
Corbridge did play hard and created chances, but Nimmins was at the top of his game and his distribution was a key factor as Real won 7-1.
The Real manager said: “Despite missing Leach in the midfield the guys put that bit extra effort in and it was a total team performance.
“As a team we were sound and all players stepped it up a level, as for our keeper, yet again a different class and he pulled off some great saves.”
