Jack’s spot on

Just wondering how to go about providing a bit of sports news for the sports section of the Northumberland Gazette. I am the coach for Longhoughton Rangers under 8's and one of our players took part in and won a penalty shootout at halftime in Bedlington Terriers FA cup match against Whickham FC at the weekend and was presented with a trophy and Bedlington Terriers football shirt. A fantastic achievement against some older players. His name is Jack Grisdale and the picture attached was him being presented with his prizes by Terriers owner Bob Rich..

BUDDING footballer Jack Grisdale netted himself a trophy in a penalty shoot-out at Bedlington Terriers.

The Longhoughton Rangers under-8s player came through a sudden-death contest to win the kids’ competition, held at half-time during the Terriers’ FA Cup qualifier against Whickham FC on August 20.

The tournament was part of an open day organised by the club, who beat Whickham 1-0 on the day to reach the FA Cup’s preliminary round.

Jack, eight, overcame several older players to bag the top spot.

And the youngster also got to meet the Terriers’ billionaire owner Bob Rich, who presented him with the trophy and a Terriers football shirt.

The American bought the club last year after tracing his family back to the Bedlington area.

“He was chuffed to bits,” said dad Peter, who is also the Longhoughton Under 8 team coach.
