Newcastle Benfield 1 Whickham 4 Northern League Division 1

Newcastle Benfield suffered a disappointing defeat today against Whickham Fc who gained a well deserved 3 points in their battle against relegation.

The Lions enjoyed a lot of possession however the final ball was often wasted without achieving a positive result. Defensive errors by Benfield and counter attacking football by the Glebemen allowed the visitors to cruise to their Third away win of the season.

Andrew Bulford scored a Hatrick and a goal for Max Cowburn made it 4-0 before James Martin scored a consolation goal after following up a Dale Pearson free kick.
