Crook Town AFC vs Billingham Town




With Manager Colin Myers being unavailable due to work commitments, Dion Riatt took over first team duties for the visit of Billingham Town

Crook started strongly and pressed Billingham to try and stop them settling in to their normal game pattern . Kieran Megran was rather fortunate not to receive an early yellow card for a foul on Luke Hogan and shortly after, Jack Connor got taken out. However, Billingham found their stride after quarter of an hour. Hutchinson headed over from a Dickinson free kick and moments later he pounced on a weak back pass, rounded Niall Harrison which left Hutchinson the chance to stroke the ball into the net. Billingham doubled their lead on twenty four minutes Dickinson released Hutchinson and the in form striker wrong footed Crook defender Decklin Moss and drilled home with his left foot. Crook carved out their only chance of the first half on thirty eight minutes. Daniel Mann’s corner was only half cleared to David Vincent who then found the top corner of the net from ten yards.

The second half was all Billingham! A four man move ended with Dickinson scoring a cracker from twenty yards. Dickinson also had a close range effort blocked by Harrison’s legs and Hogan followed up but the linesman on the far side deemed the winger to be in an offside position. On sixty three minutes, Billingham grabbed a fourth goal and once again it was Dickinson. A crossfield ball dropped perfectly for Beddow who had only been on the pitch for sixty seconds. The winger nudged the ball past Harrison and rolled the ball into an empty net. Both Dickinson and Hutchinson had further chances but Harrison was doing his best in keeping the score respectable. Hutchinson did manage to get another hat-trick though, side footing home Dickinson’s low cross and there was still time for Dunlavey to  score with a simple tap in.
