The Chronicle - - Nufc - MARK CARRUTHERS

DUN­STON UTS moved into sev­enth place in the North­ern League Divi­sion One ta­ble af­ter they came out on top in an en­ter­tain­ing af­fair at Guis­bor­ough Town.

In-form striker Mark Fitz­patrick won the game for Chris Swailes’ side, as his 77-minute header gave them their fourth win in five league games.

Dun­ston had taken a two-goal lead thanks to Liam Thear’s brace, but they were pegged back when Steve Roberts struck two goals of his own.

That made it six goals in three games for the Guis­bor­ough striker.

How­ever, Dun­ston re­cov­ered and Fitz­patrick got the de­ci­sive goal to give them a 3-2 win.

Team Northum­bria in­flicted a first away de­feat of the sea­son on New­cas­tle Ben­field with a 1-0 win at Coach Lane Cam­pus.

A fourth-minute goal from striker An­drei Arde­lean en­sured that Team North se­cured their sec­ond win of the sea­son. Their vis­i­tors could have taken a point with the likes of John Camp­bell, Paul Brayson and Richie Slaugh­ter all go­ing close.

In Divi­sion Two, a Shane Jones brace gave Heaton Stan­ning­ton their first league win of the sea­son at West Al­lot­ment Celtic. Luke Parkin­son gave West the lead af­ter 21 min­utes, only for Jones to get the Stan back on level terms four min­utes later with a close-range fin­ish. With just over five min­utes to go un­til the break, Jones scored again to give his side a first win at the fifth at­tempt.

Else­where in Divi­sion Two, Bran­don United were 3-1 win­ners against Esh Win­ning. Vin­cent Gash was Bran­don’s match-win­ner as he hit a hat-trick to give them their sec­ond win of the sea­son. Daniel Kent had got Esh back on level-terms af­ter Gash’s first-half opener. The game was sub­ject to a lengthy de­lay af­ter a se­ri­ous in­jury to Bran­don’s Luke Thomp­son.
