Seasiders share spoils

Sunday Sun - - Football -

WHITBY Town had to set­tle for a share of the points in a 2-2 draw with Sut­ton Cold­field Town.

Chris Hardy’s side started brightly and took the lead in the 20th minute with a goal from David Car­son.

He raced on to an Adam Gell through-ball and won a chal­lenge with Roy­als keeper Mason Springth­orpe.

The ball fell nicely for Car­son and he rolled it into an empty net.

The Seasiders’ fail­ure to deal with a cor­ner led to an equaliser for the vis­i­tors just min­utes be­fore half-time.

Mid­fielder Lee Smith pounced on a loose ball and blasted home to get his side back on level terms at the in­ter­val. For­mer Premier League striker Mar­cus Tudgay put the vis­i­tors ahead as he cap­i­talised on a de­fen­sive er­ror and rolled the ball past Shane Bland.

But Car­son grabbed his sec­ond of the day af­ter rac­ing on to a Matthew Ty­mon flick and en­sur­ing his side came away with a hard-earned point.
