Whitby Town 2 Gateshead FC 1

Well it was the old game of two half's for Gateshead at Whitby Town.

Whitby took the lead early in the first half and looked the better going forward, Whitby's second goal was a power house shot that Simon Bishop got his hands to but the power carried it in to the roof of the net.

After the half time break Gateshead started much the stronger and camped out in the Whitby half. with Davie Southern and Nicky Deverdics keeping the tempo high for the Gatesheads attacks.

Jamie Curtis Pulled one back for Gateshead mid way through the second half with a great Header past a helpless Campbell (a Former Gateshead Keeper). After this goal Gateshead kept up their attacks on the Whitby goal only to have most shots stopped by Campbell.

Whitby rid the storm well to hang on to all three point's, Gutting Gateshead only hit top gear till they was behind.
