Undefeated after 2 league games Grey Horse over 40’s played at home to table topping Consett, also undefeated after 2 games and scored late on for a 1 – 0 win. Horse got off to a good start playing the Consett team off the park with fluent passing play and although Horse had plenty of the ball and created chances they were not rewarded with any goals and the first half ended scoreless. With the resolute away defence being put under constant pressure chances were again created and missed in the second half. Jeff Dixon blasted over from 4 yards out and Pat Bowtell should have hit the target after a cross field pass picked him out in front of goal but again the opportunity to open the scoring was wasted. The home defence looked fairly comfortable against a decent Consett attack with keeper Ian Shepherd alert to tip over a solitary strike on goal. The impressive Neil Wilson spurned a great chance to score after running past the away defence from the half way line into the goal area before fluffing his chip into the grateful Consett keepers arms. With time running out second half sub Marty Joyce latched onto a pass just outside the box and fired a blistering first time right foot shot into the bottom corner of the net for the only goal of the game. An improved all round team performance, Darren Foster with the Man of the Match award, but goal chances need to be taken from the many created to maintain a place at the top of League 2.
