Wearside League 2nd Division Challenge Cup 2nd Round
Saturday 14th October 2023

Shildon Railway are newcomers to the Wearside League this season, stepping up from the Crook & District League, where they had relative success, winning the Norman Wright Cup, Weardale Cup, Alan Britton Cup, plus the Durham Minor Cup in 2019. 

The club is based at the Shildon Railway Sports & Social Club, which has a fully enclosed football pitch with changing room facilities behind the goal. The social club is also home to the cricket and bowling clubs.

2nd Division Challenge Cup 2nd Round 

2.30pm ko



Shildon Railway strolled into the next round of the Challenge Cup as they hit nine past Wolviston Reserves. The goals got underway in the 17th minute when Curtis Curl was on hand to tap in after the keeper initially saved, before getting their second when the ball rebounded off Noah Ellis a few minutes later. 

The hosts easily played the ball through and around the Wolvo defence, as Connor Lowes grabbed the third and further goals from Ellis and Curl made it 5-0 at the break. 

Connor Lowes fired in a penalty on the hour mark, then the impressive Harrison Taylor scored the best goal of the game, receiving a ball in from the left and firing in a first time shot from outside the box. 

With three players on a brace it was a race to see which player would score a hat-trick and the honour fell to Lowes, who grabbed the eighth on 77 minutes, before the number nine made it nine with a neat chip finish to wrap up the goalscoring.
