Morris hat-trick helps Cullercoats to big win

A superb hat-trick from Ben Morris helped Cullercoats Under-15s to a comprehensive win over their nearest rivals in the NEYDL league.

Josh Urwin opened the scoring for the home side after 15 minutes before Morris struck just before half-time to make it 2-0 at the break.

Morris got on the end of a brilliant cross from Dan Morton in the first minute of the second half to make it 3-0 before the visitors stuck back to make it 3-1 just a minute later.

It stayed that way for most of the second period before Delaval’s legs started to fade as Marcus Holmes added number four with an effort from the edge of the box before Morris completed his treble from close range and Reece Ackinclose scrambled in the sixth.
