Patton at the double for Robins
Seaham Red Star 1North Shields 2A first half double from Kyle Patton helped North Shields to a closely-contested 2-1 win against Seaham Red Star on Saturday.
Patton gave Shields an early advantage after six minutes; converting a Cam Cunningham cross from close range.
The in-form attacker doubled the lead not long after, when he reacted quickest to a deflected Nick Cassidy freekick.
Former Robin Dan Wilson pulled a goal back for Seaham at the start of the second half, with a lobbed finish under pressure. But Shields were able to hold on for an important three points at the Ferguson Motor Repairs Stadium.
Robins do not have a game on Saturday.
