Four players  – Matthew Keogh ( Defender) Fraser Colling ( Mid field ) Josh Akal (Mid Field) and Jay Smyth ( Striker) all made their debut for the Club in last  Friday Night’s Fixture away to Birtley Town

Goals from Michael Hepplewhite, Kevin Dixon and Jay Smyth were not enough to gain anything from the game following a disastrous first minute when they conceded two goals Trailing 2-0 the Cestrians battled back to equalise through Mick Hepplewhite and Kevin Dixon and just as the were showing signs of a fightback they conceded a third goal to go in 3-2 down at the interval . They were awarded a penalty when Hepplewhite was bundled over in the box but he fired his effort high and wide of keeper Mordey Hepplewhite was again ina action shortly after latching onto a mixup between a Birtley defender and the keeper to side foot into an empty net but the Referee inexplicably disallowed the goal much to the annoyance of the Chets erle Street Players Birtley then went through to increase their lead to 4-2 before substitute debutant Jay Smyth broke clear in the 91 st minute to round the keeper and fire home. But it was too late

Despite going down to the odd goal in seven the Cestrians did produce numerous chances and could have taken all the points in a very entertaining game which was played in front of no crowd following an intervention by Gateshead Council – which saw the sell out 300 crowd stopped from attending at the last minute
