Three teams from TyneMet earn victories

TYNEMET College won two North East College League matches, including one at Under-17 level against a very committed East Durham College team.

The TyneMet team had to come back twice from being a goal down to eventually win 3-2 with a brace from rookie Stephen Brown, his first a spectacular hit over his shoulder to catch the keeper stranded off his line from 25 yards.

The other goal came from the hard working talisman Nathan Hewitt.

It was a great result for the team who were without five of their key players.

In the Open Age College League, TyneMet played their penultimate match of the season against a much improved Darlington College and ran out 1-0 winners in a tight and physical match, thanks to a header from Nathan Eaton.

TyneMet’s work ethic was rewarded with a winning performance and will give them a real confidence boost ahead of their cup semi-final after the Easter holiday.

TyneMet ECFA team won local bragging rights in their derby clash with Newcastle College, emphatically winning 8-3 at Coach Lane.

They had to dig deep, coming from a goal behind after ten minutes before scoring four goals in the first half through John Wears, Ben Holmes and Ryan Ferrier (2).

There was still time for Newcastle to pull a goal back before the interval.

TyneMet extended their lead shortly after half-time when Ferrier got his third and there were further goals for Wears and Holmes.

Newcastle did manage a consolation goal but TyneMet rallied and Stephen Dodds grabbed the final goal with an acrobatic overhead kick.
