A RAMPANT Prudhoe YC Seniors hit Felling Magpies for six on Saturday. 

The 6-0 victory at Kimberly Park saw the hosts end the day in seventh place in the Northern Alliance Division One. 

Prudhoe’s promising youngsters shone on a day which saw the side ruthlessly convert attacking football into goals. 

Sam Dibb-Fuller opened the scoring after just five minutes, with a well executed left-foot volley. 
The score remained at 1-0 until the 45th minute, when Luke Banks doubled their advantage on the stroke of half time, following a pass from David Burns. 

The Seniors made it 3-0 on 50 minutes, when Banks back-heeled the ball into the path of Burns, who slotted home. 

A penalty was awarded on 67 minutes after Burns was pulled down in the box, after running onto a Brad Rodgers through ball. 

Rodgers took the spot kick and found the bottom corner to make it 4-0. 

With 15 minutes to go, Ben Bloomer got himself on the scoresheet, before his cousin Matty Bloomer completed the scoring in the 80th minute. 

Club secretary Duncan Graham said: “There were many pleasing elements of the game. 

“The players effectively executed the game plan of coaches Lee Blackburn and Tony Wigham, for the second match in a row. 

“A lot of our youngsters did really well once again. Sam Dib-Fuller, and both Ben and Matty Bloomer are just 17 years old. Luke Banks is 18, Brad Rodgers is 19, and David Burns is the old man of the team at 25.”

Another positive for Prudhoe was the performance of goalkeeper Sean Brown, who kept a clean sheet.

“We had three keepers unavailable,” said Graham. “Sean is usually outfield for us, but he is no stranger to the goalkeeping position and did a great job.”

Prudhoe will turn their attention to the Northumberland FA Minor Cup on Saturday, when they will entertain Burradon at Kimberly Park. Kick off is at 1.30pm. 

The Northumberland FA Les Todd Senior Benevolent Bowl tie between rivals Ponteland United and Wallington was abandoned.

The game was called to a premature halt by referee Colin Smith following a nasty knee injury to Wallington’s Ben Fenwick.

The first round fixture has been rescheduled for Saturday.
