In the final games of the season in the Under 9s League two good teams in Blyth and Gainsborough Trinity played out an excellent 2-2 draw and showed why they are two of the better teams in this league.

Unbeaten Marshalls continued their fine run of form with a 5-0 win at home to Retford Whites.

Their goals were courtesy of L. Smith, C. Johnson, W. Hughes-Pyper, E. Waring and C. Spooner.

After weeks of hard work Blyton eventually recorded their first win of the season with a hard-fought 3-2 home victory over Marshalls Colts.

F. Holdsworth, B. Newton and J. Newton were the goalscoring heroes for Blyton with T. Cutts and J. Quigg replying for Marshalls Colts.

Misterton’s recent improvement continued as they recorded a 3-2 away win at Retford Stripes.

Goals came from S. Palmer (two) and O. Ellis, J. Bradshaw and R. Makings finding the net for Retford Stripes.
