NORTH Shields FC’s poor league run continued on Wednesday night when they fell to a 2-0 defeat to Hebburn Town.
The tie was a chance to put a dent in Town’s promotion push at the Daren Persson Stadium, but after 20 minutes the visitors had a 1-0 goal advantage through Paul Gardiner.
Shields created limited chances throughout the game, but with 15 minutes to play found themselves with an extra man when Tony Stephenson was shown a red card after two bookings.
The home side didn’t make the most of it though and minutes later Gardiner scored again to secure the points for Hebburn.
