Nothing but praise from the Redcar boss, as the prolific Steelmen sink a disjointed Whickham side.

Carl Jarrett rejoiced with little to fault as Redcar brushed the Lang Jacks aside within 45 minutes, keen to note that wins like such build confidence.

It took just EIGHT seconds for the contest to be all-but put to bed, a freak opener championed by Curtis Round, whose empty lunge looped over Dan Lister to find the far corner.

Within a flash, Adam Boyes slipped home to extend the arrears, reacting the quickest to punish a loose stop from the Whickham number one.

The forward later turned provider, teeing up Curtis Round for the simplest of finishes, only to have the favour repaid within minutes with a seeking ball to the back post, where he lie in wait.


Impressed by his side’s endeavour, the Redcar boss offered nothing but praise for the rampant Steelmen.

Jarrett stopped short of labelling the performance outstanding, but admitted it was perhaps the best since his tenureship at the club began.

It was a great performance. 

I think it was one of those ones where the lads have just dug deep from minute one.

Obviously, getting that ridiculously early goal put us on a good platform straight away. But really, everything in that first half was just excellent.

We were a lot braver with the ball today.

We tired to get the ball down and play from the back, and I think we cut them open time and time again.

We fully deserved the win. I can’t fault the lads from minute one through ninety.

Second half, obviously, it’s one of them when you’re four-nil up and your foot comes off the pedal a little bit, things might get a little bit scrappy.

Still, fair play to everyone that was involved today. I’m just chuffed for the club, and the lads, to get those three points.

I went to watch these on Wednesday night, and I did think they were a very good side.

We put a good performance in against what I can only say is a good team.

Don’t take anything away from them, you know. They’ve had a good season, and of course, Whickham will still be up there.

For us to get those three points today, and in the way that we did, I’m over the moon.


Quizzed about the impact of such a result beyond the weekend, Jarrett admitted confidence is at a high, and winning is paramount.

Obviously, a win like that brings morale into the team.

Wins build confidence. The lads at the present minute really believe in themselves, and they believe in what we are doing.

That showed today.

So hopefully, come Tuesday, we’ll have a few more bodies, and we can go from there.
