Good afternoon and welcome to Morpeth FC for today’s fixture. It has become contrasting starts for the two teams, Morpeth have been consistently one of the top sides in the Northern League for the last 4 years and have started this year in the same vain. They have recruited well in the summer and signed experienced players from higher levels to push them on further. I was delighted with the win against Washington last week. We’ve found ourselves in a position we don’t want to be in at this stage of the season, although I’m not sure results have always reflected our performances. It was important against another team who have started poorly to get the win and it was thoroughly deserved. We weathered a strong wind in the first half and we knew we would create chances as the game went on. Today will be a difficult game, we trained well midweek due to the postponement and as players I think we enjoy the tag of underdogs. It’s important we match Morpeth in every compartment that we can and that means we have to show heart and desire as well as quality in the final third.

Enjoy the game and continue to support the players. We have a very inexperienced team and it certainly helps to have you onside Jim Nicols Lee Quinn ©

Washington 1 Penrith 2 – Ebac Northern League Division One Three valuable points for the Bonny Blues and this match was all about the ability to convert superiority into goals. Both teams are scrapping for points at the bottom of the first division and it was the Cumbrians who made the most of the time when they had the upper hand. Washington, on the other hand, couldn’t get a second goal when they were on top and it cost them. In the first half Washington were the better team and they were ahead in the 10th minute when a cross by Robbie Williamson was met by Shaun Pickford with a well-executed first time shot.Only a couple of last-man tackles prevented Washington extending their lead just after the half-hour mark. Williamson was denied a shot with a diving tackle by Grant Davidson and then two minutes later Dean Crozier repeated the feat just as his opposite number Rhys Evans was about to shoot. Penrith weren’t able to mount many attacks and the most difficult incident Washington keeper Daniel Gladstone had to contend with in the first half was a wayward backpass by his skipper Alexander White that almost caught him out.Evans had another effort – this time from 30 yards out – tipped over the bar by Penrith keeper Daniel Eccles. In the second half the tables were turned – Penrith’s play improved, they played further up the pitch and started to create some chances. In the 53rd minute Chris Wraighte ran clear of the Washington defence, Gladstone came sprinting out of his box, Wraighte rounded him, got a shot away and was only denied by a diving block on the line by White. Adam Maine was next up for Penrith, he saw his shot go just wide. In the 70th minute they were level. Jonny Murray was put through, shrugged off a couple of Washington defenders and held his nerve to make it 1-1. Washington had another chance to re-take the lead. Pickford found Sam Grieveson who sprinted on for a one-on-one with Eccles who came off his line to block Pickford’s shot. Murray wrapped up the points for the visitors after Connor Shields raced away from Washington centre half Michael Laws. Shields’ shot was saved by Gladstone but the ball fell kindly for Murray who hit the back of the net for his second. They had the chance to get a third when Shields out-muscled new signing Pascal Chimbonda on the edge of the box, but he couldn’t keep his shot down and it sailed over the bar.


They had the chance to get a third when Shields out-muscled new signing Pascal Chimbonda on the edge of the box, but he couldn’t keep his shot down and it sailed over the bar. Chimbonda watch: Washington’s headline-grabbing signing of Pascal Chambonda boosted the attendance but his debut ended in a defeat. Playing at right back, he wasn’t in the thick of the action but until the dying minutes had a relatively comfortable, straight forward game. He made a couple of penetrating runs down the flanks and always made himself available to other defenders as an outlet. Fitness and a degree of rustiness may have been factors, but in added on time at the end of the match he was out-muscled for the ball by Shields that led to a clear chance for the Cumbrians – a reminder, if any was needed, that it’s a physical league. Signing for the Mechanics made news around the world, including Japan and Bangladesh. Before yesterday’s game he said: “It’s a new experience, I have never played in a division that is the ninth level in the country. “It is two years since my last game, but my fitness is good. I look after myself, I train, I am ready to play, if the coach selects me. I just want to play and if I can help the coach I will do so. There’s a lot of hard work ahead for both teams. “I will help the younger players and try to help them approach the game in the right way. I want to help them through the game, to keep the ball, to win games. Pascal had been in contact with the club for several weeks before the deal was finalised on Thursday night. “Everytime we talked, the manager asked me how I was, how my fitness is and we stayed in touch as the talks went on. I went to the French Federation to help the move get completed. The people over there know me. It was quick and I am happy to sign.” He hopes to move into coaching once his playing days are over.


Page 8 Morpeth Town History

Welcome to the Visitors

Morpeth Town Football Club was established in 1894, and through more than a century of football have continued the tradition of carrying Amber and Black as their team colours. The club was formed after an amalgamation between Morpeth United and Morpeth FC, playing at Stobhill Cricket Field. In 1954 the club moved to Storey Park, and in the 1980’s enjoyed a successful time in the Northern Alliance, winning the title and finishing runners-up on two other occasions, as well as lifting both the Challenge Cup and Benevolent Bowl in 1986. The club spent half a century in the Northern Football Alliance before stepping up to the Northern League on their one hundredth anniversary, winning the Division Two title in their first season and finishing sixth in Division One and Northumberland Senior Cup runners-up in their second. In 1998-99 they made it to the final qualifying round of the FA Cup, losing 1-0 at home to Nigel Clough’s Burton Albion. The club moved to a purpose-built stadium in 1994, which coincided with a League and Cup double, and with it, promotion to the Northern League. Craik Park was named after the father and son W and R Craik who had served as secretary between 1920 and 1985. Current President Ken Beattie was the man behind the stadium and since 1992 he has revived the club’s fortunes. Membership of the Northern League followed in 1994/95 and the following year saw the Second Division Championship being presented to Morpeth. The club finished 6th in the First Division at the first time of asking, as well as reaching the final of the Northumberland Senior Cup. After sitting comfortably mid-table between 1996/7 and 1999/2000, Morpeth narrowly avoided relegation on goal difference in the 2000/01 season, and finished once again one spot above the relegation zone in 2001/02. In addition to the Vase, Town finished 4th in the Northern League. The following season, the club narrowly missed out on winning their inaugural Northern League title, finishing in second place behind South Shields. The next few years saw Morpeth Town move back into the middle of the table before a 6th place finish in 2005/06, Morpeth’s equal top performance in the Northern League. In 2006/07 Morpeth won the Northumberland Senior Cup for the first time since 1886 (as Morpeth Harriers) with a 3-2 victory over Blyth Spartans. The Highwaymen began their revival in 2011/12 under the stewardship of Nick Gray who moved to the club from Seaton Delaval and brought a number of players. In his first season Morpeth narrowly avoided promotion back to the top tier, finishing fourth and a one point won fourteen consecutive home games. 2012/13 saw the side improve once more, finishing one place higher in third position, beating out Jarrow Roofing on goal difference to earn promotion. After earning promotion Morpeth Town managed to avoid the drop quite comfortably finishing in 17th place. During the season, they also went on a then historic FA Vase run to the Quarter-Final stage.


In 2014/15 saw further improvement, with the Highwaymen finishing 8th in the table and reaching the Northumberland Senior Cup Final. The club was now beginning to attract high-caliber players to the area, with the likes of Keith Graydon and Ben Sayer signing from higher level football. The 2015/16 season brought Nick Gray his first trophy for the club, and what a win it was, beating heavily favored Hereford FC 4-1 in the FA Vase final at Wembley Stadium. Despite going a goal down in the first two minutes, the Highwaymen battled back, 45-year old Chris Swailes netting to equalise before half-time. The second half brought an onslaught from Morpeth, Luke Carr scoring after just a minute before Sean Taylor and Shaun Bell netted on a famous day for the Northumberland club. Let’s Meet the Team Max Coombes (Keeper) Max is a young goalkeeper that signed in the summer following a move from Thailand to the UK to study at Park View Academy. He spent pre-season with Scottish side Dundee, and has experience playing against them too. Karl Dryden (Keeper) Karl joined the club from neighbours Ashington at the start of the 2014-15 season and has been a big part of the clubs success in recent seasons. He made 51 appearances last season, including 39 appearances in the league campaign. Danny Carson (Defender) Danny is a recent addition to the squad having played for South Shields for the first half of last season and also when they won the Division Two title. He has vast experience from in the Northern League and is a versatile defender. Curtis Coppen (Defender) One of the signings of the summer, Morpeth captured the signature of Curtis, who signed for the club from North Shields. He was formerly on the books at Gateshead and he is regarded as one of the best defenders in the region. Chris Reid (Defender) Chris signed for the club from Whitley Bay during the 2015-16 season, and has proved to be an influential member of the squad. He made over 200 appearances for the four-time FA Vase winners, and has excelled at Craik Park. Michael Turner (Defender) Michael signed for the Highwayen last September and has proven to be a great addition to the squad. He is a solid and no-nonsense defender, who likes to get forward and he always gives his all whenever he steps out onto the field.


Meet Our Opponents Tonight

Let’s Meet the Team (continued) Luke Carr (Midfield) Luke is an enigmatic player, who was a revelation during the FA Vase winning season. After going to Australia for six months, where he played for Holland Park Hawks, and the midfielder, who has set his sights high, re-signed for the club in the summer. Jordan Fry (Midfield) Jordan is the engine room of the Morpeth side, as he never stops running and is almost unbeatable in the air. He played a crucial role in helping Morpeth to a second-placed finish last term after making 36 appearances. Keith Graydon (Midfield) The captain of the side, Rasher is well known in the North East football scene having played for a number of sides including Sunderland and Gateshead. He’s the heartbeat of the team and has a major influence in midfield. Wayne Phillips (Midfield) Wayne signed for the club during the summer from South Shields, where he won four trophies last season, including the FA Vase at Wembley Stadium. He is a vastly experienced winger, who has also won the Vase with Spennymoor Town. Ben Sayer (Midfield) Ben joined the club during the 2014-15 season, and is a hard-working player with a superb range of passing. He has a huge creative influence on the side, and was named Northern League Player of the Year for last season. Steve Turnball (Midfield) A Central Midfielder, he joined this week and should debut today. Formerly Hartlepool (2004-8), he had some loan spells at Gateshead, Bury and Rochdale. A spell at Harrogate 2011 – 12 but three spells at Blyth Spartans in his career. He clocked around 150 appearances, with 20 goals and we’ll remember! Mark Davison (Forward) Mark is a prolific centre-forward, who has scored goals for fun in the Northern League in recent years. He signed from Washington last season, and was a big miss in some cup competitions, but still managed 20 goals in 27 games. Liam Henderson (Forward) Liam is a prolific centre-forward that signed for the club from Spennymoor Town. He finished top-scorer last season with 27 goals and will, no doubt, be up there challenging for the league’s golden boot again, he’s got an eye for goal. Sean Taylor (Forward) Sean is the vice captain and is one of the best players in the Northern League on his day. He was part of Sunderland’s Academy as a youngster and the wide man has pace, trickey and is an excellent finisher. Taylor netted 15 goals last season. Joe Walton (Forward) Joe, who won the FA Vase with Spennymoor Town, joined from Washington last season and the winger has vast experience in the Northern League. He can player in various positions and will look to build on a brilliant first season.

From the files of the Cumberland & Westmorland Herald Strikers Mike Hodgson and Barry Irving were both on target for Penrith Town as they beat Whickham 3-1 in the Northern League Division II. Saturday’s victory at the World Group Stadium was Penrith’s fourth success in five matches and for the first hour of the match the Blues played what manager David Heslop described as their best football for some time. It yielded three points which lifted Penrith up to sixth place in the league table and they also have games in hand on a number of their promotion rivals. “I was obviously pleased with the win,” Heslop said. :We deserved it and I thought our first half performance was the best we have had for a while”. As it was, Hodgson and Irving struck in the first period before Hodgson added another just after half-time. :Our tempo and passing in the first half was much better and the third goal meant the game was as good as won,” said Heslop. For the first time in more than a month, the Blues were without a midweek game. For that, Heslop was thankful as it gave his squad a much needed rest ahead of today’s trip to improving Sunderland RCA. Experienced Ian Hixon has taken over as manager of the North East side after a poor start to the season which led to the previous management team departing. Richard Prokas and Tim Fletcher both miss the match as they have a coaching assessment. David Lynn (groin) and Will Paul (ankle) have only returned to training this week, while Gary Milne is also a doubt. Help take us back in time to Southend Road. Share a story, an experience, share a picture and share a memory, record a memory I’m working on the 125 year celebration 1894 – 2019 it will be a year to celebrate and remember the generations and achievements of the Bonny Blues Call me 01768 862394, drop a line lee@cumbrianlocal.co.uk or talk to me today


We welcome into the club Andy Coyles

Mike Hodgson fired the Blues in front after only five minutes, beating Whickham goalkeeper Stephen Robinson from close range after Mark Jones and Matty Lea had linked well on the left.

A West Cumbrian by birth who has recently moved to Richmond, Andy played for Workington before following his journey which now sees him as a Senior lecturer in sport based at Newcastle University

Lee should then have doubled his side’s lead as he fond himself clear on goal but after he delayed his shot defender Paul Addison recovered to avert the danger. The visitors threatened on 24 minutes as Anthony Dowson’s long throw was flicked on by striker David Fairless but home goalkeeper James Holland pushed the ball around the post. During a goalmouth scramble in the Penrith box, Wayne Robertson was then able to clear the ball from almost on his own goal-line. Eight minutes before half time the home side made it 2-0 as Ryan Errington’s well-flighted corner was headed home by Barry Irving. Hodgson was then unlucky to see a shot from 20 yards fly past the upright. Three minutes after the break, Lea set up Errington and his 25-yard shot was saved on the line by Robinson. But within a minute it was 3-0 as Lea’s cross to the far post was headed back across goal by midfielder Martin Strong and Hodgson again finished from close range. Whickham pulled a goal back on 63 minutes as Paul Cavanagh delivered a corner into the Penrith penalty area and Scott Robinson planted a header past Holland. Home substitute Tim Fletcher broke well with two minutes remaining but his shot from 20 yards brought a good save from Robinson. Penrith: Holland, Wilson, Jones, Thornton, Robertson, Frampton, Errington, Strong, Irving, Hodgson (Fletcher 61), Lea. Subs not used: Summersgill, Blaylock, Milne, Pattinson.

Penrith 3, Whickham 1

Andy expressed an interest in getting involved in the club earlier on in the season. He joins us with a real challenge a head. It is hoped he fits in with the management team in place and we begin to pick up some much needed points. We are 13 games into the season and it’s no secret all of us involved, Management, Players, Committee, Supporters have got to pull in the same direction. The 3 points we picked up at Washington last week were absolutely vital. The introduction of pace supplied by substitute Connor Shields changed the game. Jonny Murray grabbing a brace of goals adding to his impressive total, however I feel the boy has much more to offer if he can up his work rate, only time will tell? I hear he goes on holiday shortly, which reminds us of what a difficult job managing is. It gave me great pleasure at Newton Rigg training this week to see the commitment of our Barrow based players who battled through floods and put in an extra ten minutes training. Finally, a big welcome to Paul and Sandra Street who travel annually from Perth Australia to visit their son Jamie who is in his third season with the club, who he classes as his best mate. I know they treasure their time here and we certainly enjoy having them. Paul is an avid supporter from all those miles away following almost every kick. C’MON YOU BONNY BLUES Billy

Penrith Ladies and Girls Report

Page 22

Bolton Wanderers Reserves 0 Penrith AFC Ladies 2 On a very small 3G astro pitch this was never going to be an easy game. A youthful Bolton team were in determined mood and it made for a very competitive game. Penrith started brightly and had 2 clear changes in the first 5 mins of the game but having squandered these the game drifted into a battle of attrition. Penrith were struggling to break down a hard working Bolton team. Bolton too were playing some good football without really threatening the Penrith goal. An even first half ended goalless. Into the 2nd half Penrith finally began to take the initiative. They were pressuring higher up the pitch and the momentum was building. Eventually Penrith were rewarded with the opening goal. Becca Alderson intercepted the ball and made a determined run into the final third of the pitch. She has brought down 25 meters out and Nat Broad converted the resulting free kick to give Penrith the lead. Bolton responded and pinned Penrith back for a period. Penrith saw out this period and then gradually regained control of the game. Penrith secured the points late on when Sarah Smith made a run down the wing and crossed for Georgia Campbell the fired home from 4 yards. This was 16 year old Campbell’s first competitive goal for the club. Full Time 0 - 2

Stars shine bright for Penrith

Penrith AFC Junior Boys

Penrith AFC Stars v Castletown Blue Penrith started very well with good passing between the midfield and good finishing by Even Cowperthwaite. The midfield of Cory Tomkinson and Ellis controlled the game throughout. Penrith scored some really good team goals and Castletown battled for every ball but had no answer to Stars’ quick direct football. Castletown Colts v Penrith Panthers

The defence of Joseph Tinker and Finlay Sanderson was outstanding. Man of the match Games between these 2 evenly matched sides have often been a tight Finlay Sanderson affair but the Panthers started by keeping the ball for long periods but failing Ben Challis © to break down a stubborn Colts rear guard. The introduction of Reon Morrison and Mackenzie Fleming seemed to inject some intensity in the Panthers play and after a good move Morrison would have felt as though he should have opened the scoring but for a fantastic point blank save from the Colts ‘keeper. Panthers right back was pushing forward at every attempt with Harry Dinsdale battling for every ball in midfield. The breakthrough came early in the second half when a Panthers corner was only half cleared and centre back Finlay Awde stuck the ball on the half volley 25 yards out and it flew into the top corner of the net. Outstanding strike. That seemed to settle the Panthers down but the Colts keeper was having a superb game with his defence still blocking and making it difficult for Penrith. Panthers got their second with a neat finish from Callum Wills. Man of the match went to Ben Dargue who just keeps getting better and better in his right back role. Well done everyone.

Richard and his team proved to have a great deal of skill and expertise between them with a determined and creative approach to any unforeseen problems that arose. The new roof progressed smoothly and quickly despite the notorious Cumbrian weather. They were polite, friendly and considerate. they did a great job and they cleared up and whisked away the rubble afterwards. We can't praise them enough.

Penrith AFC U16s This week we took on Castletown Utd with a very strong side available! With talented striker Ellis Hurst finishing his three match ban but right back Christian Jackson missing with illness. We started very very strong showing great strength and character with Danny Hall bagging an early goal! From there onwards there was no holding back in a very good game of football where Penrith, being the stronger side with Connor Gregory-Dorsey scoring before half time. Penrith went into the second half at a slow speed but Connor Gregory-Dorsey somehow managing to score another two and holding on for the remainder of the game. Well done to Kyle Strand for another clean sheet and Ryan Heslop for a great performance. The Man of the Match performance however was from Danny Hall.
