Gateshead 4 Eastwood 0 (Play-Off Semi Final)

The Tynesiders quest for promotion took one mighty step forward last night with one of the best displays of the season in front of one of the best crowds of the season.

Any pre match worry’s were soon put to rest as Davie Southern headed home after just 3 minutes to send the home crowd wild and the party started.

As if Southern’s goals wasn’t enough to make the mouth water, what the Heed Army witnessed on 13 minutes will live long in the memory of ever Heed fan who seen it.

Paul Brayson fired home a shot from 25 yards straight into the top right corner, pure genius and skill from the former Cardiff City man.

Eastwood did themselves no favours when Shaw found his own net from a Gateshead cross into the box, Eastwood’s travelling support must have been crushed to have been 3-0 down after only 28 minutes. Just on the stroke of half time Southern grabbed his second goal to make sure the result was gonna go Gateshead way.

In the second half Jamie Harwood had a goal disallowed as he was judged to have fouled the keeper, much to disappointment of the Heed Army.
The match was a joy to watch and every player in a Heed shirt did Tyneside proud, Bring on Buxton in the Play-Off Final!!!!!!!!!
