Positive Robins claim point
West Auckland Town 1North Shields 1An early Kyle Patton goal helped a much-changed Shields side to a deserved point against West Auckland Town.
The young winger, one of Wednesday’s squad to retain his place in the team, was on hand in the 19th minute to convert at the far post, with both teams testing each other in the early stages.
The hosts levelled just before the break when Adam Burnicle finished off a well-worked move which saw Liam Hegarty and Amar Purewal have a hand in the build-up play.
And despite Gareth Bainbridge and Scott McCarthy testing the West Auckland keeper in the second period, the hosts managed to hold the Robins to a draw.
