Kent cracker seals Coundon’s Trophy glory

Have your say

COUNDON & Leeholme finally tasted Durham County FA Trophy glory last night – after two previous final defeats.

The Durham Alliance League side beat Northern Alliance outfit Gateshead Redheugh 2-1 in a hard-fought clash at Eppleton CW.

An entertaining first half ended goalless, but Coundon took the lead 10 minutes into the second period, with Daniel Kent firing home a scrappy goal.

Redheugh hauled themselves level midway through the second half, but Coundon won it on 70 minutes with a goal worthy of winning any game, an outstanding 25-yard free-kick from Kent.
