TWO late goals put the icing on the cake for Prudhoe YC Seniors as they cruised to a 4-1 win at Forest Hall in Northern Alliance Division One.

The red and blacks got back to winning ways in style, after crashing out of the Team Valley Carpets Combination Cup against Wallsend Boys’ Club the previous week.

This was a dominant performance by Prudhoe, and was in keeping with the form which has now taken them up to third place in the league.

Ryan Burnyeat continued his hot streak with a goal on 17 minutes. The 23-year-old converted a right wing cross from man of the match Darren Graham.

Pruhoe conceded an equaliser all of their own making on 22 minutes. A back pass from a central defender caught out goalkeeper Sean Brown, and found its way into the back of the net.

Despite going in to the interval at 1-1, there was much more to come from Prudhoe.

On 57 minutes, Steven Forster’s ball into the box was met by the head of Burnyeat, who headed home his second of the game to make it 2-1.

The scoreline remained unchanged until the 89th minute, when a David Burns cross from the right was met by Sam Dib-Fuller, who made himself some space before coolly converting from 15 yards.

The Seniors’ fourth and final goal came in the first minute of added time. Following a good team move, Luke Banks spread the play to Burns on the right flank, and he chipped the goalkeeper from a tight angle to make it 4-1.

Prudhoe YC Seniors’ club secretary Duncan Graham said: “This was a really good, dominant performance, and the two late goals probably made the scoreline about right.

“We played some very entertaining football, and there were some lovely goals to enjoy.

“After the previous week’s cup defeat, we’re delighted to get back to winning ways and, naturally, we’re looking forward to the next game.”

Prudhoe are in Northumberland FA Minor Cup action on Saturday, when they travel to Ashington AFC Reserves. While they sit two divisions lower than Prudhoe in the Northern Alliance pyramid, Ashington are mid-table in the Development Division, with three wins from six league games.
