Resur­gent Rebels romp past Spar­tans

BLYTH SPAR­TANS 0 FC UNITED OF MANCH­ESTER 3

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Jeff Bowron

BLYTH Spar­tans’ mini-re­vival shud­dered to a halt as a resur­gent FC United romped to vic­tory.

The Red Rebels scored three goals and would have dou­bled but for Blyth keeper Peter Jame­son and prof­li­gate fin­ish­ing.

Two goals in­side two first half min­utes put the Red Rebels in the driv­ing seat.

Kurt Wil­loughby grabbed the opener on 19 min­utes. A Rebels’ counter-at­tack left Wil­loughby on-on-one with Jame­son and the striker made no mis­take.

It was soon two, good wing play from the elec­tric El­liot Si­moes pro­duc­ing a headed de­but goal from Tom Peers.

Both sides traded chances at the start of the sec­ond pe­riod, Robbie Dale and Si­moes both miss­ing great chances.

Only a mag­nif­i­cent Jame­son save from Wil­loughby pre­vented fur­ther dam­age.

Spar­tans went for broke but FC United held firm, de­fender Nathan Bud­dle pick­ing up a yel­low card that could have been a red.

Blyth, just out­side the drop zone, ran out of ideas and were put out of their mis­ery by Lewis Mansell with im­pres­sive FC United’s third.
