Chester le Street lost 1-0 at Thornaby in this 2nd v 3rd Division 2 clash
After 24 minutes, a free kick was clear back to Josh King and he played it through for Daniel Candlish but his shot was saved by James Dawson. After 27 minutes, Chester made a quick break down the right and Harry Wood raced into the area to hit a good shot just over the bar. After 32 minutes, Candlish hit a good free kick in from the left and it found Andrew Clarkson but his header when just over the bar. After 70 minutes, the ball was played to the edge of the area for Michael Hepplewhite to hit a good low shot which went just wide of the post. Thornaby scored what proved to be the winning goal after 75 minutes when a corner from the left was missed at the near post and the ball went into the net off Kyran Clark. Thornaby came close to a second goal after 81 minutes when the ball was played to Taylor Crainey on the edge of the area but his low shot brought a good save from Jack Wilson. Not a terrific game but not a lot between the side and a draw would probably have been the fairest result.
