THE DOLPHIN FC v WEAR UNITED FC Sunderland Sunday League – Division 3 Sunday 15th January 2017 Silksworth 3G – Kick Off 9.30am


MESSAGE FROM THE GAFFER

Hello again – last week is still hurting if I’m honest. A great game for the neutral but devastating for us after battling back from 3-1 down and being the better team for most of the game to lose it in the last minute. Another disappointing thing this week is that the Railway Tavern have resigned from the league meaning we lose 6 points from our total and also go into a negative goal difference – other teams of course have been affected but some of the clubs around us had only played them once. The one positive from last week was seeing all our teams wearing their new ¼ zip tops with pride. Our club is growing by the week and I am so proud of what we are building together Also just want to say congratulations to Graham Smith who became a Dad again this week and also to Scott Stevenson who will become the 5th player to enter the 100 appearances club if he plays this weekend The Under 7’s played 2 matches last week with the Under 8’s and Under 9’s both playing one game – it is superb to see how far all the teams have come and how each and every player is developing. All the youth teams results can be found later in the programme

Good luck to all our teams this weekend #wearforlife Thanks Michael

LAST TIME OUT – RYHOPE NEW RAILWAY FC 4-3 WEAR UNITED FC United took on Ryhope New Railway hoping to start 2017 the same way that 2016 finished but despite playing some really good football ended up losing narrowly in a game that a draw or even a United win would have been the fairer result United completely controlled the opening 10 minutes and the first chance of the game fell to Dan Musther. Scott Stevenson winning the ball and playing it out wide to Dan who hit a powerful shot that the keeper tipped over the bar. From the resultant corner Scott Stevenson swung it in and Sam Wade met it with a header which went wide of the goal On 4 minutes Sam Wade went on a great run past 4 Ryhope players and managed to get the shot in but the defender got across well and blocked the shot Scott and Sam combined again 2 minutes later when a Scott free kick was met with a header from Sam but it ended with the same result going wide of the mark Ryhope’s first chance of the game came on the 10 minute mark but it was a shot from distance that went well wide of the goal On 12 minutes Scott Stevenson got up well to win a header and the header fell right on Steve Barnes’ volley and Barnesy connected well but it went narrowly wide Another chance for Ryhope after 16 minutes with a neat pass on the edge of the box which was met with a shot but it was straight at Carl Lee in the United goal Ryhope had another good chance on 18 minutes when they got a shot in from the right which Stu Bowman blocked superbly but the ball rebounded to a Ryhope player at the edge of the box but his shot took a deflection which took the pace off the ball and it went through to Carl Lee United’s next chance came on 21 minutes when Stephen Keogh passed to Steve Barnes and he took a touch and hit a fierce shot which went just over the bar and a minute later Scott Stevenson hit a sweet left foot volley but unfortunately it was straight at the Ryhope keeper United eventually took a well deserved lead on 28 minutes. A free kick was awarded to United 20 yards out on the right hand edge of the box. Mick Smith stood over it and hit a fantastic curling effort towards the far post. It evaded everyone and nestled in the bottom corner to make it 1-0 to United United nearly doubled their lead 3 minutes later when Mick Smith won a tackle and played the ball to Sam Wade who returned the pass but Mick’s shot was blocked Ryhope were getting back into the game and had 3 chances in quick succession. On 35 minutes a cross was headed wide and a minute later a shot was well hit but Carl Lee pulled off a great diving save and gathered at the second attempt. Ryhope pulled level though on 37 minutes when a shot was well saved by Carl Lee but the rebound fell kindly for the attacker despite Liam Coulson’s best efforts and the ball was put into the net. 1-1 Ryhope had a free kick on the right hand side on 43 minutes which was met with a free header but the ball was put wide and a minute later United had a chance when a great kick from Carl Lee released Mick Smith and he was brought down on the edge of the box. Scott Stevenson looked like he was going to hit it goalwards but decided to pass and Ryhope intercepted and broke quickly. Matty Colborn tried to pass back to Carl Lee but miskicked the ball but Matty recovered to get the tackle in to prevent Ryhope taking the lead The last action of the half brought the third goal of the game and it was harsh on United. The referee gave a penalty to Ryhope when Liam Coulson was adjudged to have fouled the Ryhope player. Hey made no mistake from the penalty putting it to Carl Lee’s left hand side with power to make it 2-1 to Ryhope Half Time – Ryhope New Railway FC 2-1 Wear United FC


LAST TIME OUT – RYHOPE NEW RAILWAY FC 4-3 WEAR UNITED FC Ryhope had the first chance of the second half when a neat turn and cross from the right was put wide but a minute later and Ryhope extended their lead. Stu Bowman gave a free kick to Ryhope 30 yards from goal and the ball was hit hard and flew over Carl Lee and into the net to make it 3-1 to Ryhope A minute late and United made their first changes with Graham Smith & Richie Morton replacing Steve Barnes and Andy Meikle On 55 minutes Sam Wade went on another great run beating 5 Ryhope players but shooting just wide however a minute later Sam got the goal he deserved. Stu Bowman with a delightful free kick which was met with an absolute bullet header from Sam Wade which gave the keeper no chance, 3-2 to Ryhope United were level 3 minutes later when Mick Smith tackled the defender brilliantly on the left hand side of the box and when most people would have panicked, Mick pulled the ball back perfectly for Scott Stevenson who stroked the ball into the back of the net to make it 3-3 United sensed a chance to go ahead and on 65 minutes Richie Morton showed great feet to skip past a defender but the shot went wide of the goal. United’s next changes seen Mark Doleman and Luke Tate enter the fray to replace Mick Smith & Dan Musther Ryhope had a free kick on 71 minutes but it went well wide of the goal and a minute later United lost the ball in midfield and a pass out the right ended with a shot but it didn’t trouble Carl Lee and went out for a goal kick On 77 minutes Ryhope had a fantastic chance to regain the lead. A cross from the left was met with a free volley in the middle but thankfully it wasn’t struck cleanly and it went straight into Carl Lee’s hands Joe Walters replace Scott Stevenson on 78 minutes which was United’s final change of the match With 9 minutes left Luke Tate gave a free kick away 25 yards from goal but thankfully for United it was struck straight towards Carl Lee who caught it comfortably and a minute later Ryhope had another chance with a shot from the edge of the area but it went well wide of the target With 5 minutes left United picked up a yellow card when Richie Morton got booked for a foul after the ball had been cleared and his sliding tackle took out the defender Ryhope won the game with seconds left on the clock and it was a hard one for United to take. Ryhope broke down the left and the ball was pulled back from the by-line and put in from 6 yards out to make it 4-3 to Ryhope United had one last chance in the second minute of stoppage time when a free kick was swung in and wouldn’t fall nicely for Mark Doleman – he managed to get a connection on the ball but could only put it over Full Time – Ryhope New Railway FC 4-3 Wear United FC Hard defeat to take considering United had a lot of possession but credit to Ryhope for keep going and taking their chances
