WEAR UNITED FC v PARK VIEW FC Sunderland Sunday League – Division 3 Sunday 4th December 2016 Silksworth 3G – Kick Off 09.20am


MESSAGE FROM THE GAFFER

Well another defeat last weekend for the adults but another cracking effort and if the match had lasted another 10 minutes I reckon we could have got a draw as we put a lot of pressure on after we scored our second – yet again we never gave up and battled to the end and it is no disgrace that we lost to the league leaders for the second week in a row. I really hope we keep the same mentality for this weekend as it wont be an easy game but if we play the right way then hopefully we can get that winning feeling back. Just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who attended the race night. It was a great event with a lot of positive feedback and we made a nice profit. Looking forward to next week when the new ¼ zip tops will turn up – will be great seeing everyone wearing them and promoting our new fantastic sponsors. Don’t forget other items are available to buy from our new online club shop which has now taken 5 orders so far Wednesday seen our club celebrate the 3rd birthday of our youth teams – we started with 6 children and 1 coach and are now upto over 35 children with 5 coaches and we are still growing – we are looking for more children to join us so if anyone knows of any children under the age of 9 then please let me know – we could also do with some more volunteers to become coaches – again if anyone knows of anybody that may be interested let me know Good luck to all our teams this weekend #wearforlife Thanks Michael

LAST TIME OUT –GRANGE PARK FC 4-2 WEAR UNITED FC United took on unbeaten table toppers Grange Park for the second week in a row and were hoping to improve on last week’s good performance even though it ended 2-0 to Grange Park. A not so good first half today but a much improved second half – the final score was 4-2 to Grange Park but United battled all the way to the end and Grange Park again knew they were in a game of football The first chance fell to Grange Park after 5 minutes with a shot from outside of the box but Carl Lee was well placed and easily saved A free kick from the right on 10 minutes for Grange Park was swung in and met with a header but it wasn’t on target and it went out for a goal kick United’s first chance came a minutes later when Stu Bowman played a free kick from just inside the Grange Park half forward and the ball came out to Stephen Keogh outside of the box. Keogh took one touch then hit the ball hard but just wide of the mark The woodwork came to United’s rescue on the quarter hour when a pass was flicked on and into the path of the striker who took a couple of touches before lashing the ball hard towards the goal from 8 yards but the bar cannoned back off the bar and the score remained 0-0 On 17 minutes Grange Park had a throw in which ended with a shot from the edge of the box but it flew past the post. Another Grange Park set piece on 23 minutes caused United some concern. The free kick was swung in from the right and eventually it dropped in the box and the shot came in but it was just too high and it skimmed the top of the bar before going out for a goal kick Grange Park’s dominance paid off on 24 minutes when they took the lead. Matty Colborn fouled the striker inside the box but the referee gave a free kick on the right hand side just outside of the box. The free kick was hit in low and hard and another player jumped over the ball which allowed it to go directly into the net. 1-0 to Grange Park Within 3 minutes Grange Park doubled their lead. Again it was a free kick which looked like Carl Lee would be able to gather easily but it hit the back of another Grange Park player’s head and wrong footed Carl and the ball rolled into the net. 2-0 to Grange Park Carl Lee was back in action again 2 minutes later when a shot came in from the edge of the area but it was straight at Carl and he gathered easily Scott Stevenson had a great chance to get a goal back but the Grange Park keeper pulled off a great save to keep the score as it was Sam Wade gave Grange Park another free kick on 31 minutes which was 25 yards out. The ball was hit hard but the United wall stood tall and blocked the ball A blatant miss on 33 minutes kept United in the game when a cross from the right was met with a free volley but it was put wide when he should have scored A minute later and United were thankful to Scott Stevenson. A corner was met with a goal bound header but Scott Stevenson was on the line and headed clear The final chance of the half fell to Grange Park and it was another set piece. A corner was swung in which Sam Wade headed up in the air. The second ball was met with a Grange Park header which looked like it was going to drop under the bar until Carl Lee rose and caught the ball just under the bar on the line Half Time – Grange Park FC 2-0 Wear United FC


LAST TIME OUT –GRANGE PARK FC 4-2 WEAR UNITED FC United made a few changes at the break with Luke Tate & Joe Walters coming on to replace Scott Stevenson & Mark Doleman – there was also a change of formation which meant Stu Bowman was relived of his man to man marking duty to drop into a back 3 with Liam Coulson & Matty Colborn. Andy Meikle & Richie Morton became wing back with Joe Walters joining Stephen Keogh & Sam Wade in midfield. Luke Tate & Steve Barnes played in a two up top The changes had an immediate impact with United getting a goal within a minute of the restart, a stray pass by the Grange Park defender across the box was met with a first time shot by skipper Steve Barnes from 18 yards and it nestled in the bottom corner. 2-1 to Grange Park On 50 minutes Grange Park had another chance when the striker turned well at the edge of the box and shot but it went over the bar and 5 minutes later a Grange Park corner came out to the edge of the box and was shot goalward. The shot was flicked in a different direction from inside the box but it took the power off the shot and allowed Carl Lee to adjust and gather the ball Grange Park had another couple of chances but both were hit straight at keeper Carl Lee. On 59 minutes it was a free kick and on 62 it was a shot from the edge of the box but they were both easy for Carl Grange Park got their 2 goal advantage back on 65 minutes when a ball was cleared from their own box and it freed the striker down the left with a great pass. The striker ran into the box and lobbed the ball which Carl Lee got a hand too but he couldn’t get enough on it and it went into the net. 3-1 to Grange Park United made a change on 68 minutes with Liam Robson replacing Richie Morton A superb piece of goalkeeping prevented United getting a second goal. Joe Walters put in a perfect cross which Sam Wade met with a trademark header from 4 yards out but some how the keeper managed to get his hands to it and tip it over the bar. From the corner it was the same combinations with Joe swinging it in and Sam Wade heading the ball but it went wide of the target Mark Doleman returned to the action on 72 minutes replacing goalscorer Steve Barnes 3 minutes later and Grange Park extended their lead. Another set piece, this time a corner, was met at the front post and despite Carl Lee & Stu Bowman’s best efforts it snuck in to make it 4-1 It was Carl Lee’s turn to produce a world class save on 80 minutes after a lovely pass was met with a great shot but somehow Carl kept it out with a fantastic diving save Richie Morton returned to the action on 80 minutes replacing Stephen Keogh The league’s top scorer should have had another goal on 82 minutes when Carl Lee was caught in no mans land and the striker nicked the ball past him but despite having an open goal he hit the side netting from the right hand side Grange Park were trying to extend their lead and on 83 minutes a neat passing move ended with a shot from the edge of the box which cleared the bar and 3 minutes late another good pass was flicked on but the shot went wide of the goal United got a second goal with 3 minutes left. Richie Morton’s free kick was blocked by the wall but United kept the ball alive and Liam Coulson played the ball across the box and Sam Wade met it with a great strike. 4-2 to Grange Park The goal gave United more confidence and United nearly got back to within one goal a minute later when Joe Walters beat a man on the right hand side and crossed the ball in which was heading goalwards but unfortunately for United and Joe it went over the bar The last chance of the game fell to United and it was Liam Robson who picked up the ball and hit a vicious shot goalwards which the keeper could only fumble out for a corner which came to nothing Full Time – Grange Park FC 4-2 Wear United FC Another defeat but again United didn’t roll over and Grange Park knew they were in a game of football – good battling performance from everyone and nobody gave up! Park View next up!
