North Sunderland 1-3 Cullercoats Reserves
Neville Cowey Cup - Group 1
Wednesday 28th April 2021

North Sunderland is a fishing village on the Northumberland coast, adjacent to Seahouses.

(population: almost 2,000) The village grew significantly when the nearby coast was developed

as a harbour. Community growth became focused around the sea-houses, built in connection

with herring fishing, eventually giving its larger neighbouring village its name. 

North Sunderland FC previously played in the Northern Alliance in the 1999-2000 season and finally returned in 2019. In between the club played in the North Northumberland League, winning the Division One title in 2017-18.

Neville Cowey Cup - Group 1 -matchday 6


A hat-trick from Andrew Tallen sent Cully Reserves into the semi-finals of the Neville Cowey Cup.

North Sunderland took the lead in the 13th minute when a threaded through ball found Chris

Gardner, who fired home with just the 'keeper to beat. Cullercoats equalised midway through the

half with a shot from the edge of the box by Tallen, then he fired them ahead just before the half

time whistle. The visitors clinched it on the hour with another fine strike from the striker to put

them in the final four, where they'll face Red House Farm away this Saturday.

#Heedhopper A fine day on the Northumberland coast with one of my southern based Groundhopping buddies,

pursuing our two favourite hobbies - football and beer. We headed up the coast at around 1.20pm

with our first pub call being the Three Horseshoes in Rennington. Unfortunately the day didn’t get

off to a good start as the pub was shut, even though it was advertised as being open from 11-3 and

6-11(we also had another unsuccessful crack at it afterwards) However, we found success at the

Joiners Arms(High Newton-by-the-Sea) The Ship Inn (Low Newton-by-the-Sea) and finally The

Olde Ship in Seahouses, followed by a chippy tea in the village before the match. A cracking day oot!
