Local footy: Stephenson header earns a draw for Horden – Sunderland Echo

Rain-soaked pitches caused the cancellation of several friendlies on Saturday but Horden CW’s game with Woodley Sports went ahead in Cheshire.

The Colliers, newly-promoted to the Skilltrainingltd Northern League First Division, matched their hosts during the opening 45 minutes despite going in a goal behind.

Simon Corbett’s team dominated the second half and after twice hitting the woodwork, equalised with a Mark Stephenson header 10 minutes from the end.

Bishop Auckland proved too strong for Brandon United, romping to a 4-0 victory at the Bobby Robson Centre in Ushaw Moor.

Wayne Gredziak, a regular scorer in the Northern League, cleverly back-heeled into the net on 25 minutes and before the interval Gavin Parkin produced a clinical finish with a left-foot volley.

Early in the second period, Ben Richardson struck from six yards and when Daryl Richardson produced an excellent cross, Gredziak was again on target.

Despite scoring three times through Adam Nichol 2 and Dean Grayson, Crook Town were overwhelmed by Shildon who struck seven times.

FA Carlsberg Vase winners Whitley Bay, defeated 2-1 by Durham City in their previous game, quickly bounced back to win 2-0 at Gretna courtesy of Phil Bell and Lee Picton.
