Cramlington Hit by Double Red Card Blow; PINPOINT RECRUITMENT NORTHERN ALLIANCE PREMIER DIVISION

Article excerpt

CRAMLINGTON Town were on the verge of taking three points out of defending champions Harraby Catholic Club over in Cumbria, but their hopes were dashed and they were finally and rather unjustly beaten 4-2. The Town had been leading 2-0 at the interval thanks to strikes by Jordan Watson and Dave Atkinson, but some controversial secondhalf events led to their demise.

This goal acted as a spur for Seaton Delaval who started to take control and they took the lead when Stephen Howes beat Hogg with his clever shot on the turn.

Only three minutes after the break Tony Browell rescued the Villagers, heading home from Malcolm Morien's well-taken corner-kick. …
