Northumberland Mini Soccer League U9

COBRAS travelled to North Shields for a league game on Sunday and after a slow start Cobras started to play their football. Jay McEwan grabbed a couple of goals, then Kristian Atkinson scored with a long-range effort before a goalmouth scramble led to the ball falling to Josh Middleton who struck a good shot into the to corner.

North Shields managed to get one goal back, but this didn’t stop the Cobras. Archie Smith took a corner for Reece Graham to rise and score the Cobras’ fifth. Jonathan ‘the rabbit’ McNickell scored a great long-range shot and Atkinson grabbed a couple of more to seal his hat-trick.

Marko McKinley scored his first and the Cobras’ ninth, McNickell got his second, Atkinson his fourth, Smith his first for the Cobras’ 12th, Graham scored again, then Smith got his second and Cobras’ 14th.

North Shields were awarded a late penalty but Robbie Parker made a good save.

Managers K Smith and D Middleton were happy with their performance overall.
