The 100FgC 2009 Accolades

(The 100FgC New Years Honours list)

* Best Match Attended *
Southport 2 Gateshead 3
7th March, Blue Sq. North

History suggests that Gateshead don’t usually win these crucial matches. A cracking second half with Gateshead staring defeat in the face as Southport took a 2-1 lead, before a great late come back and as the song goes..
“2-1 down, 3-2 up, Wayne Phillips he wrapped it up”

My best game of the year, great entertainment and the result and performance made it that extra special.
(2008 winner Gateshead 2v0 Fleetwood Town, 23rd Feb, Unibond Premier)
*Goal of the Year*

Lee Novak Gateshead v Vauxhall Motors, 28th February
Kris Gate began the move with a ball out wide to Harwood who struck a superb first time 40 yard diagonal ball into the path of the league's leading scorer, Novak.

The 20 year old chested the ball goalwards under pressure from a covering defender to lift a right foot shot past James Coates and into the far corner of the net. Class!
