Redcar’s Resurgence and Regrouping Not Quite Enough


Gale force wind disrupts Redcar’s comeback in a much improved performance.

Redcar kicked off the game with a howling wind behind them, this was more of a hindrance than a help as several chances were kicked away and the wind took the ball over the dead ball line and gave the advantage back to Ashington. Redcar pressed but it was Ash who scored the first points with a converted try, 0 – 7. Redcar’s cause was not helped when No.8 James Cochrane was shown the yellow car on 20 mins and Ash scored another try 2 mins later, 0 – 12. Substitute winger Craig Newlands took to the field on 25 mins and immediately made an impact scoring Redcar’s first try, 5 – 12. Two mins later against the run of play, as Redcar attacked the Ash line and were stopped just short, the ball was intercepted by Ash’s fullback and he ran half the pitch, exchanged passes with his winger and went in under the posts, 5 – 17.

Redcar hit back with a try from Danny Addison, 10 – 17 and on 38 mins an Ashington player got a yellow card for persistent off side and a minute later Redcar continued their resurgence, when Josh Dixon scored a great try to bring the halftime score to 15 – 17.

Half Time Redcar 15 Ashington 17

Ashington restarted the second half and with only 2 mins played, fullback Danny Addison received a yellow card, in the ensuing 10 mins Ashington scored two more tries, 15 – 31 then Addison returned to the fray and went from zero to hero on scoring Redcar’s 4th and first bonus points try of the season, 20 – 31. Redcar pulled out all the stops and went all out for a victory and it was fitting that 2nd row Neil Young who was outstanding and all over the field in attack and defence, led the charge and scored the last try, 25 – 31 but alas it was not enough but another bonus point, so near but so far. The game was never going to be a spectacle given the weather conditions.

Full Time Redcar 25 Ashington 31

Much improved Redcar performance if a little ring rusty in the first half, it was to be expected as it was the first game since last season for some players and it took a while for them to gel. Well done to Dennis Hunt and Gabe Holmes, who both got stuck in showed promise, Cian Briggs had a good game and it goes without saying that Brad Stovell, James Cochrane, Craig Newlands and Neil Young were all prominent but Josh Dixon was awarded man of the match by Ashington, but the whole squad did well and if they stick together the wins will come.
