Elite Results | Last gasp Turnbull penalty earns three points for U18s

Rhys Turnbull kept his cool to convert a penalty as Moors Under 18s snatched a late win with the last kick of the game.

A sloppy start saw Spennymoor fall behind with two minutes gone after the defence failed to deal with a simple cross into the box.

After gaining some control in the game, Moors found themselves level after a slice of fortune saw Cieran Jackson’s shot defect of a defender and loop into the net.

Jackson showed his trickery when he beat two men before staying composed and finishing clinically to put Moors ahead on the hour mark.

With the match nearing its conclusion, Moors struggled to find the clinching third goal, and they were made to pay when the visitors equalised from a corner with two minutes of normal time remaining.

The game seemed destined to end in a draw, but deep into injury time, Hughes was dramatically brought down in the penalty area, allowing Turnbull to score from the spot and earn Moors the points.

UNDER 16 side come from behind to win

Spennymoor Town Under 16s recovered from an early set-back to record a deserved victory thanks to goals from Joseph Moore, Rhys Redpath and Tom Aldsworth.

Moors cancelled out the home side’s early opener when the in-form Moore struck, and, despite playing into a strong head wind, Redpath put his side ahead on 35 minutes.

It was 3-1 on the hour when Tom Aldsworth scored his third goal the season to make it two wins in a row for Moors Under 16s.
