Gateshead A zero in on title with 8 goal blast

I'm no Stephen Hawking but I reckon that Gateshead A need just four more points from their last five games to seal the Bluefin Sports Insurance Second Division title.

The Amateur Cup winners saw off second-placed title contenders Grainger Park in some style, Joe Hailes leading the way with a hat-trick.

Matty McCarthy, Nick Cassidy, Ollie Leedham, Callum Johnston and Scott Johnson added the others while Stephen Thompson chalked up a consolation.

Gateshead A have netted 125 times and conceded just 19 in a remarkable season that has also seen them win the Football Conference Youth Alliance North.

The fact that they've been playing at least three games a week makes it all the more remarkable for the talented youngsters.
