Gateshead 2 Newcastle Blue Star 0

It could have been a training game at the International Stadium on Wednesday night, Gateshead never got motoring but still won 2-0.

Midfielders Wayne phillips (pictured) and Steve Salvin got the goals, with Paul Musselwhite making two great saves at the other end of the pitch.

The game was not without incident after Former Ipswich Town and Middlesbrough striker Alun Armstrong was sent off half way through the first half for verbally abusing the referee.

Notable performances came from Craig Baxter looked a cut above dominating his part of the pitch, likewise for Phil Cave who never put a foot wrong all game.
Wayne Phillips was like a man on fire down the left hand side and skinned the Blue Star defenders faster that rabbi performing circumcision before his lunch break. Was a joy to watch!!!!

Scott Bell clapped and gave a nice wave to Heed Army after coming off, could this be a sign he’s on his way to the Heed in the coming weeks, only time will tell!!!!
