PRUDHOE YC Seniors were big movers in Northern Alliance Division One on Saturday.

They won 3-0 at home to Wallsend Boys Club to close the gap on league leaders Hebburn Town U23 to just two points.

Prudhoe had to battle windy conditions at Kimberly Park to get the better of Wallsend, and make amends for league and cup defeats against the Tynesiders earlier this season.

Two-goal Sam Moore, and man of the match Matty Robinson, played key roles, but this was an all-round team performance from the Seniors.

Prudhoe had the strong wind in their favour in the first half, and Moore struck with crossbar with a 17th-minute effort on goal.

He didn’t have to wait long to register, however, for on 20 minutes, he found the net from 15 yards following a lay-off from Arron Fletcher. With the wind in their faces after half time, Prudhoe were handed an early boost in the second half, when they doubled their advantage in the 48th minute.

Robinson found the net with a superb drive from 18 yards, following another assist from Fletcher.

The visitors remained on the front foot, with good football leading to the creation of more opportunities.

On 63 minutes, Robinson miss-hit a shot from the edge of the area, and the ball fell to Moore, who made no mistake from 10 yards to net his second and Prudhoe’s third goal of the game.

Prudhoe did have to defend resolutely at times, and there was a confident display from young goalkeeper Thomas White.

They travel to fifth-placed Blyth Spartans Reserves on Saturday.
