Moors record second straight 4-0 win in Stockton Rout

Mark Anderson and Rob Ramshaw both scored brilliant goals as Spennymoor recorded their second consecutive 4-0 win of pre-season against Stockton Town.

Anderson netted his third goal in two games when he collected Ryan Hall's pass on the edge of the box and curled home an excellent strike that left the keeper routed. It spelled the end of a cagey opening 25 minutes as Moors began to dictate the game.

They doubled their lead two minutes later when Kallum Griffiths played in Glen Taylor, who slipped away from his marker and squared for Jake Orrell who tapped in his first goal for the club.

Hall and Griffiths caused countless problems down the right hand side during the first half, but it was the opposite flank where the third goal was created.

Taylor ran from deep in his own half and sent a teasing ball across the six-yard box which could only be diverted into his own net by a Stockton defender, effectively ending the game as a contest before the break.

New signing Hall caused countless problems during the first half and struck up a promising relationship with Kallum Griffiths down the right.

In a second half sparse of chances, Rob Ramshaw lifted proceedings with a delightful shot which sailed into the far corner after Orrell played him through on goal.

It was Ramshaw's second goal of pre-season and a reward for his positive play after his arrival at the break.

Stockton forced Moors trialist keeper into a flying late save when their forward flicked on a header from a cross, but the home side contributed little throughout the game.

Moors continue their pre-season schedule when they travel to Pickering Town on Saturday afternoon.

Spennymoor team: Trialist, Griffiths, Mason, Trialist (Curtis 45’), Tait, Chantler (Trialist 45’), Hall (Ramshaw 45’), Henry (Dixon 45’), Taylor (Trialist 45’), Orrell (Johnson 80’), Anderson (Armstrong 45’)
