The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK NPL NORTH & SOUTH - By Jon Haslam

SOUTH Shields were made to fight to the end with bat­tling Ramsbottom to con­sol­i­date their lead at the top of the ta­ble.

The vis­i­tors took the lead on 14 min­utes when Louis Storey side­footed home after a free-kick fell kindly.

Ramsbottom were forced to put mid­fielder Ben Richard­son in goal due to in­jury and South Shields in­creased their lead when Jamie Holmes wrig­gled free and slot­ted home.

The Rams re­duced the deficit on 64 min­utes when Sam Heath­cote headed in a cross be­fore the away side re­gained their two-goal ad­van­tage as through Finnigan’s del­i­cate chip.

Rams scored the fi­nal goal on 78 min­utes when Heath­cote fin­ished with aplomb when sent through.
