Shildon 5 Seaham Red Star 3, Match Report by Adam Gill

Shildon 5-3 Seaham Red Star: Match Report

Shildon returned to winning ways in the Ebac Northern League as they overcame Seaham Red Star at Dean Street.

Goals from Thomas Bott and Alex White saw the game was level after 20 minutes, before Nathan Greenwood scored in the 23rd minute to give Seaham a half-time lead.

Joe Posthill, Danny Craggs, Jack Vaulks and Dean Thexton gave Shildon a three goal cushion, before Paul Gardiner pulled a goal back with 15 minutes to play.

The Railwaymen held on for the win, which sees them move up to fourth in the league, whilst Seaham sit in 15th.

The away side took the lead in the 17th minute, when Bott was left unmarked from a corner before picking up the loose ball and smashing his volley home beyond Matthew Bateman.

Shildon responded three minutes later, when Posthill’s deflected effort fell into the path of White, who directed his header past Andrew Jennison.

Seaham went ahead soon after, when Greenwood saw his initial header saved by Bateman, leaving him to tap home the rebound from only a few yards out.

Posthill pulled his side level, when he picked up the ball out wide, before driving inside and firing his effort hard and low towards the near post.

Shildon were awarded a penalty on the hour mark, which Craggs stepped up to take and dispatch into the bottom corner.

The hosts extended their lead in the 67th minute when Vaulks got on the end of Craggs’ corner kick to head his side in front.

Shildon scored their fifth of the night when Jack Naylor’s cross found Thexton in the box, who headed home beyond Jennison.

Seaham pulled a goal back two minutes later, when Gardiner found himself unmarked on the edge of the box, before finishing low into the bottom corner.

Shildon face Bishop Auckland at home in their next match, whilst Seaham welcome Newton Aycliffe.

MATCH PREVIEW | Shildon v Seaham Red Star by Josh Hart

Shildon look to return to winning ways at Dean Street


Following back to back away defeats on the road to Stockton and West Auckland Town respectively, Shildon will be hoping to get back on track against a Seaham Red Star side that currently sit 19th in the league.


Despite a much improved performance against high flying Stockton Town, The Railway Men have still failed to net in their last two outings, something manager Daniel Moore will look to see addressed this weekend.


Moore may be looking towards star forward Billy Greulich-Smith to continue the fine form displayed against Northallerton, which saw the striker bag a Hat-trick in a convincing 3-0 win.


With the away side leaking 23 league goals and picking up just 1 win all season, Shildon will be looking to ensure that they take maximum points against the relegation battling side, but cannot afford any complacency.


A 2-2 draw when the sides last met at Dean Street saw Shildon blow the 2-0 lead they secured in the opening 10 minutes.  Manager Daniel Moore will be hoping for a similar start when the sides meet on Saturday, but will also expect a higher level of concentration throughout, in-order to assure the 3 points


A win for Shildon could see The Railway Men move into the top 4, leapfrogging Guisborough Town, who face mid-table Newcastle Benfield.
