Northumbria Gift Points To RCA

Colin Stromsoy wants goals for Christmas after shot-shy Team Northumbria failed to deliver ahead of the club’s Boxing Day derby with Newcastle Benfield.

TN are desperate for fresh firepower after snatching defeat from the jaws of victory against Sunderland RCA.

And the Coach Lane club face further frustration if they fail to address an issue that could yet jeopardise their top-flight status.

TN created - and spurned - no fewer than SEVEN clear cut chances during a dominant first half display against RCA.

And incredibly it was the visitors who went into the break 1-0 up after a smart finish showed Stromsoy’s misfiring frontline the way forward.

RCA bagged a second in added time at the end of the second half to claim an unlikely 2-0 win.

But TN could have no complaints after missing time and time again with the opposition goal at their mercy.

And the club’s failure to find the net remains the primary reason why Stromsoy’s side head into the Benfield clash joint bottom of the Northern League’s first division form table.
