Morris adds some bite to Seasiders' display

AFC Newbiggin skipper Richie Morris put his head on the line for the side in their 1-1 draw with North Shields Athletic - quite literally.

Morris had a couple of teeth knocked out in a collision during the game, but it didn't stop him putting in a man of the match performance.

Stephen Ardley beat the offside trap to shoot Athletic ahead with a low driven shot, but Chris Phillips levelled soon after when the Seasiders broke at the other end and he tucked away after the keeper parried a shot.

Terry Butcher's bandaged head? Nowt compared to the lads from the Northumberland coast, man.
