Newcastle Benfield 4
Manager Mark Convery
Absolutely delighted going into a big week for the club. We were as bad as I’ve seen first half and I challenged the players to put it right in the second half. Hats off to them showing all the qualities you need to beat a strong Shildon team. Special mention to Scott Mcarthy for his excellent form and important goals
Newcastle Benfield would like to thank Elliot Forbes for his services while on loan from Gateshead Fc.
A cracking player and a nice lad, we hope he progresses at Gateshead but would love him to return to the Lions.
Good to see Matty Grieves back in training today after a severe injury, hopefully we will see him back to full fitness soon.
