Northend United 1 St James Swifts 5 Saturday 16th March 2019
Northend came up against a title chasing St James, on Saturday and came away harshly with a 5-1 defeat. Northend went 2 early goals down on a rain soaked, stormy day but battled back and reduced the deficit before the half through a Kieran O'Boyle piledriver from 25 yards. Indeed, it could have been all square, only for Chad Shaw to see his free kick crash back off the crossbar. Half time 1-2
Northend actually played some good football second half, causing problems for their City opponents but through a couple of errors and some great finishing St James kept up their push for title honours
With a small squad on Saturday Northend can be pleased with their all-round performance Full time 1-5
