Howes about that as Blyth maintain form; NORTHERN ALLIANCE PREMIER DIVISION.

BLYTH Town made a dream start when Stephen Howes fired them ahead against Whitley Bay A after just two minutes.

The league leaders were looking to make it eight wins off the belt as their fantastic early form continued, and when hotshot Malcolm Morien added a second, they looked on easy street.

But the Seahorses pulled one back through Ryan McGorrigan on the stroke of half-time and levelled things up as Jack Byerley hit the net soon after the interval.

Town didn't hit the panic button and added to their tally through Morien with his second and a late Michael Bowman strike, but they were made to sweat for the win when Connor Johnson struck at the other end with four minutes to go. Red House Farm turned on the style as they moved above visitors North Shields Athletic into second spot with Nathan Sopp finishing twice.

Steve Brown and Chris Hutchinson also beat the keeper in a good display that takes the Kingston Park side to within six points of the leaders . Walker Central continued to move up the placings with a win at Ashington Colliers.

Although Matty Hayton's opener was quickly cancelled out by Johnny Barrett, Sam Grieveson and Carl Begbie scored after the break to secure the points and take Central into mid-table.
