âGet in!!!â is the cry from Guisborough Assistant Manager Dave Onions as he acknowledges a brilliant performance by the Priorymen at Hebburn
Guisborough Manager Gary Forster can barely conceal his delight as the final whistles goes to end a memorable victory at league leaders Hebburn for the Priorymen!
Coleman is mustard up front for the Priorymen as brace of goals stings the Hebburn ‘hornets’.
Guisborough Town produced a sensational result and performance to beat previously undefeated league leaders Hebburn Town on their own soil on Saturday.
The shock 2-1 victory by the Guisborough stunned Hebburn and propelled the Priorymen up into seventh in the table.
And the hero of the day - among many Guisborough players – was young Sonni Coleman. Signed in the summer from neighbours Stockton Town, Sonni has impressed but has clearly been frustrated at not opening his scoring account – until this Hebburn game.
The tall striker stung the Hebburn hornets after only three minutes, slotting the ball through the legs of Hebburn ‘keeper Jennison.
And worse was to follow in the 19th minute when Man of the Match Coleman scored again to make it 2-0 to the Priorymen.
Although Hebburn pulled a goal back in the second minute of time added on in the first half through Richardson, Guisborough worked their socks off and held out for the entire second half to clinch a memorable 2-1 victory.
After the game Guisborough Manager Gary Forster enthused: “This was a great result against one of the top teams in the division.
“The lads showed the tremendous spirit in the camp by working tirelessly for each other.
“Ste Snaith and Lewis Hawkins were excellent but superbly supported by the back four with Tommy Marron and Mason McNeill alongside them.
“There were some great saves from Ryan Catterick and the front two of Danny Earl and Man of the Match Sonni Coleman are a handful for anyone.
“Danny worked his socks off and Sonni is showing exactly why we wanted him so badly. He is a brute of a centre forward who took his second goal brilliantly,” added a delighted Gary.
The crowd at Hebburn was 312, swelled by a good Guisborough following, and it was very sporting to see the Hebburn Twitter site acknowledging Guisborough’s efforts.
