Redcar Athleic Under-23s returned to winning ways with a comprehensive 8-1 win vs Riverside FC, which lifted them to second in the table.

Redcar took the lead in 18 minutes when Tom Newton was fouled in the box by the Riverside keeper and Newton stepped up to send the keeper the wrong way from the spot.

It was 2-0 four minutes later with Newton grabbing his second of the game, with a sumptuous curling finish from the edge of the box.

Redcar made it 3-0 just a minute later thanks to a neat finish from Tom Lane and a rampant Redcar made it 4-0 on the half hour when Newton’s free kick was only parried by the Riverside keeper and Jack Marshall headed home the rebound.

On a heavy pitch with heavy rain falling throughout, Redcar made it 5-0 at the start of the second half through Jack Williams, sponsored by Me Sign. Jack Marshall grabbed his second of the game reacting quickest to fire home from close range after the Riverside keeper made a fine save from a deflected shot.

On the hour mark, it was 7 as centre back Marshall Blackburn scored the goal of the game, firing into the top corner from the edge of the box. It was 8-0 on 63 minutes when Tom Newton grabbed his hat trick with another tidy finish.

Despite a late consolation by Riverside, Redcar ran out easy winners.

Man of the Match went to Lewis Walton.
