By Andrew McDonnell

Blyth AFC rounded off their pre-season with a comprehensive victory as they beat Northern League Division Two side Washington 3-0 at Welfare Park.

Liam Gillesphey put the Braves ahead inside the first 15 minutes of the game and the hosts went on to create several good openings in the first 45 minutes.

Dylan Williamson added a second goal for the hosts after half-time and Cameron Fenton scored to wrap up Blyth’s fifth-consecutive victory in pre-season.

Jon McDonald and Ian Skinner now have seven days to prepare their squad for the season opener against Ashington, next Saturday.
