First Point of Season

Posted on 8th August 2017

Brandon United made the long trek up to Northumberland to take on multiple Northern League Champions, Bedlington Terriers in this 2nd Division encounter.

The weather was not good and torrential rain had earlier postponed some games in the League and threatened others with abandonment.  By the time our game at The Dr. Pit Welfare kicked off, the rain had eased off somewhat but was still falling consistantly.

Brandon opened the scoring on 8 minutes throrugh Vinny Gash

but Bedlington hit back with two goals inside ten minutes to take the lead.

The game became a bit volatile and after 90 minutes Michael Searby was sent off.  However, as the game went into the 97th minute, we forced a corner and Steven Turnbull bundled the ball over the line to give us a well earned and deserved point.
