TYNEMOUTH SHRUG OFF EXTENSIVE INJURY LIST TO DEFEAT A RESILIENT LEMINGTON LIONS

Tynemouth were rocked before kick off with 4 cry offs all down to injury. This meant a major re-shuffle in defence in particular, with Jasir Skeja coming in for the Injured David Szoltysek in the middle of the defence to be partnered by the versatile Alfie Davis as Thomas Clarkson once again took his slot at right back.
It was therefore understandable that the expected fluidity of play was not forthcoming however Tynemouth kept pushing forward in an attempt to break the deadlock. Thomas Taylor went close on a couple of occasions but on 20 minutes he was finally able to beat the visiting keeper who had already produced 2 excellent saves from Adam Watson.
This was by no means a one sided game and Hal Dickinson had to be alert in the Tynemouth goal as Lemington pushed for an equaliser, making one particularly outstanding save from the visiting striker. Davies and Skeja were working very hard in the centre of defence to make sure the Blues remained ahead
On 30 minutes Tynemouth were able to grab a second goal through Adam Watson (2- 0), but this margin was to be halved just before halftime, giving Lemington something to play for in the second half.
The second half followed a similar patter with Tynemouth probing for that elusive third goal but having to defend well against the fast counter-attacking visitors. Dickinson was again called upon to make excellent saves to keep Lemington at bay.
The decisive break through came on 60 minutes when Adam Watson showed great awareness in the box to work a good shooting angle for himself allowing the Lemington keeper little chance to make the save 3-1 Tynemouth.
The Blues kept pushing forward and had it not been for the outstanding display by the Lemington keeper, Higginson and Watson could have put the Home side further ahead. The goal that really decided this match came on 70 minutes when Higginson was through one on one with the keeper once more and on this occasion had the good fortune to pick up the rebound from the initial save to put Tynemouth 4-1 up.
To their credit Lemington never gave up and kept asking the home defence numerous questions, which thanks to Davies, Skeja and Dickinson were all answered.
The final whistle sounded with Tynemouth victors by a score of 4-1. Make no mistake this was an extremely competitive game which Tynemouth deserved to win at the end of the day, particularly given the unexpected injury crises however Lemington played their part as well.
The opposition man of the match went to Hal Dickinson with Alfie Davies just pipping Jasir Skeja to the coaches vote.
