What a start to the season it has been. With Paul Brayson and Cameron Gascoigne both scoring goals for fun for the Lions, Benfield have secured a 100% record early on in the 21/22 Northern League Division One season.
A major test awaits the boys on the road at Ashington AFC, who are also unbeaten in their opening two games of the 21/22 season. A 2-2 draw with Penrith and a more recent 4-0 victory over West Auckland Town shows that Ian Skinner's side will be tricky hosts for the Lions later on tomorrow.
Although admittedly the Lions have conceded a number of goals in their opening two games of the new season, the number being scored by the side is very encouraging, and against a strong and hungry Ashington side tomorrow afternoon, it promises to be an absolutely fantastic game.
