Shildon stay in third position in the Ebac Northern League after a Gavin Cogden strike gave the visitors all three points.

After a goalless first half which saw both teams hit the post with free kicks Shildon’s Jamie Harwood was sent off for a second bookable offence in the 53rd minute. The all important goal came in the 69th minute when Cogden was put through by ex Shildon player Briggs to fire past the keeper.
