Redcar Athletic FC 3 - 1 Ryton & Crawcrook Albion

Home | 29 September 2018 | Attendance: 204
The first chance of the game, played in front of crowd of over 200, came Ryton's way after just 2 minutes when David Luke got down the left but his cross into the box was met by Callum Turnbull, but he fired 2 feet wide of the left hand post. Redcar Athletic had been relatively quiet but burst into life in the 18th minute and took the lead in the match with their first effort on target. Gary Redman curled the ball forward on the right for Sam Calvert, who hit it first time on the run with a stinging shot, which Ryton keeper Stefan Holden could only palm down and ADAM PRESTON was on it like a shot to bury it into the back of the net. In the 23rd minute Anthony Jones won the ball just inside Ryton's half then passed it onto Adam Preston who played it thru into the box for Sam Webster, but he wasted 2 opportunities by firing against defenders, when a pass to Sam Calvert would have given him a simple tap-in. In the 25th minute a ball across to the right of the Redcar Athletic penalty area deflected into the path of Callum Turnbull and from his rising shot keeper Will Lawrence made a worldie of a one handed save to tip it over the bar. But it was only a moment's respite as from the corner kick the referee awarded a penalty kick after spotting a foul by Joshua Cooper on Martyn Kepple and CALLUM TURNBULL struck his spot kick with such venom it almost ripped the netting away from the goalposts. The rest of the half was fairly quiet apart from a chance to Redcar Athletic on 40 minutes which came from good work by Gary Redman and Michael Woodhouse that ended with Adam Preston firing in a powerful 25 yard shot that although on target went straight at keeper Stefan Holden.

On the hour mark Jordan Rivis was brought down in full flight 30 yards out from goal by Liam Anderson, who earned himself a booking for the foul. Jordan Rivis dusted himself down and fired the free kick round the wall but it ended going straight to keeper Stefan Holden, who gathered it safely in. Redcar Athletic got themselves back in front in the match via an unusual way with this team, the good old route one football. Keeper Will Lawrence booted the ball high in the air with power and it dropped perfectly for SAM CALVERT'S run into the right hand side of Ryton's penalty area for him to blast it into the net with a shot on the half volley.  It was all Redcar Athletic and it was no surprise when they went 3-1 up in the 74th minute when after Gary Redman's run down the right he played it into Adam Preston 20 yards out, who then squared it to his left  and it was neatly curled round the keeper into the left hand side of the net by SAM CALVERT.  In the 77th minute Adam Preston latched onto Joshua Cooper's ball down the right to burst into the box but his low shot flashed wide of the near post.  The last chance of the match came with 3 minutes remaining when Jordan Rivis threaded the ball through to Adam Preston, who this time saw low shot get turned round the right hand post by keeper Stefan Holden.
