Two mistakes by the Thornaby 'keeper gifted Beads a two goal lead with just ten minutes gone. Thornaby got themselves level by half time, with a cracking right foot volley by the no.7 setting them on their way. The Northern League side bossed the second half with five goals, the pick of the bunch being a header from the right-back which made it 7-2 at full time.Pre-season OdditiesPre-season OdditiesPre-season Oddities

#HeedHopperI attended both games with Lee & Katie for the first (and definitely not the last) time this season. I picked them up on Tuesday for the match in Middlesbrough and we met up in Stanley the following evening. A good start to the new season for my goal average with 13 in two games.
