Consett came from 1-2 down to record an excellent 5-2 win over Bishop Auckland. Michael Mackay scored a hat trick (two of them penalties), with Luke Sullivan and Josh Gray scoring the others.

9 December 2014


Consett had to settle for a point tonight ina 1-1 draw against lowly Billingham Synthonia in a game played in atrocious conditions at Belle View Stadium. A gale-force wind and driving rain made it difficult for both sides. Synners, with the wind at their back, took the lead on eight minutes, when Michael Sweet broke from midfield into the box, played Joe Carter in with a cheeky backheel, and the winger did the rest. Consett's reply came on 31 minutes when Aris Guerin-Lokonga was fouled from behind and Michael Mackay stepped up to tuck away the penalty for his 27th goal of the season, pictured. Kicking with the wind, Consett dominated the second half, but could not find a winner against their doughty visitors. A point apiece was little use to either side, as Billingham remain third-bottom, and Consett dropped a place to 14th, after Ashington beat Durham City. Full match report and pictures to follow.

In the draw today for the FA Vase 4th Round, Consett were again given a tough tie against a fellow-Northern League Division One side. The Steelmen have been drawn away to North Shields who currently sit one place below Saturday opponents Marske United in third place. The game will be played at the Daren Persson Stadium in North Shileds on Saturday 17 January 2015.

6 December 2014


Consett progressed to the 4th Round of the FA Vase for the first time in seven years today with a thrilling 3-2 extra time win over Marske United. The Steelmen had already hit the woodwork three times before Michael Mackay gave them the lead in the 35th minute, heading home Luke Sullivan's cross from six yards. And Mackay struck again on 53 minutes, applying the finishing touch to Josh Gray's cross. But Marske showed why they are second in the league by scoring twice through Jamie Owens in the 58th and 90th minutes to take the game into extra time. The winner came from the boot of Danny Craggs, who planted a 109th-minute free-kick into the top corner (pictured). Full match report and pictures to follow.

SHAMBOLIC is the only way to describe Consett's embarrassing capitulation at Dr Pit Welfare Park as they threw away a 4-1 lead to lose 6-4 to a Bedlington Terriers side who had lost their last five league games. It all started so well, with Michael Mackay firing them in front after eight minutes, pictured, and Luke Sullivan doubling their lead two minutes later. Lee Scott pulled one back for the home side on 17 minutes, but Consett's response was to score twice more, through Sullivan on 24 minutes and Mackay 10 minutes later. The Steelmen looked completely in control, with Josh Gray running riot down the left, but alarm bells started ringing when two goals in as many minutes from Scott again and Jordan Nellis made it 4-3 at half-time. The second half of Kenny Lindoe's 500th game in charge saw Consett simply roll over in the face of a spirited comeback from a young Terriers team. Scott completed his hat-trick to level the scores five minutes in, and two goals from Dylan Williamson on 58 and 62 completed a remarkable turnaround. It could have been worse for Consett, who showed nothing as an attacking force after the break, and were a well-beaten side long before the end. Goalkeeper Chris Elliott pulled off several saves, including one superb one from the excellent Nellis. Full match report and pictures to follow.

Consett were beaten 2-0 by league leaders West Auckland today, but can count themselves unlucky after playing for an hour with 10 men. The Steelmen were edging the game at the Seagraves Stadium, with Ryan Bell firing their best chance just over, pictured, before the incident which changed the course of the game. Michael Pearson was shown a straight red card on 33 minutes after the referee decided he was last man when he clipped the heels of Alex Francis. To add insult to injury, Robbie Briggs scored the resulting penalty to put West 1-0 up. Consett matched their high-flying opponents until the 77th minute, when a defensive mistake allowed Francis to seal the points.It was the fourth successive season that Consett have left Darlington Road on the wrong end of a 2-0 scoreline.

In today's draw for the 3rd round of the FA Vase, Consett were given a home tie against fellow-Northern League Division One side Marske United. The game will be played on either Friday 5 or Saturday 6 December 2014.

Consett marched into the 3rd round of the FA Vase with an emphatic 8-0 over near-neighbours Whickham at Belle View Stadium. Luke Sullivan broke the deadlock with just six minutes on the clock, rifling a shot home from the edge of the box. It was still 1-0 a minute before half time, but Adam Nicholls doubled Consett's lead with a firm header. This set up a second half romp in which the Steelmen scored six times without reply. Michael Mackay scored his customary goal on 49 minutes, then six minutes later Sullivan added his second and Consett's fourth after Moore swapped passes with Nicholls. Consett made it five in the 59th minute through captain Dan Madden's bullet header (pictured). Fourteen minutes from time Sullivan completed his hat trick, before Aris Guerin-Lokonga chipped in with the seventh two minutes later. Sullivan's fourth goal of the day completed the rout in the 85th minute, converting a Chris Moore cross.

Consett were second-best in every department as they were beaten 5-1 at home by an impressive Shildon tonight - and will have to do without the services of captain Dan Madden for three games after he was dismissed for an off-the-ball incident. The visitors took the lead after just two minutes when right-back Jamie Harwood showed more determination than anyone else to get to a right-wing corner and headed home from inside the six-yard box. On 12 minutes it was 2-0 as a simple pass through the middle left Paul Connor with just Chris Elliott to beat, which he did with ease. Shildon could even afford the luxury of a missed penalty by captain Mark Hudson on 33 minutes, as yet more poor defending saw Chris Emms make it three on the stroke of half-time. Adam Nicholls came on for the second half, and it was his neat 56th-minute finish, pictured, after a one-two with Michael Mackay, which gave Consett brief hope of salvaging something from the game. All that went out the window when Madden was shown a straight red card 11 minutes from time, and the visitors added more goals from two subs, Lee Scroggins on 89 minutes and Michael Rae with a free-kick in the 93rd minute, to complete the rout.

Consett will have it all to do again after their game at Marske United's GER Stadium was abandoned after 69 minutes due to floodlight failure. The home side led 1-0 at the time through a 24th-minute Danny Brunskill goal, though keeper Robert Dean had a blinder, making half a dozen good saves, including one from Aris Guerin-Lokonga, pictured. Full match report and pictures to follow.


11 November 2014


Consett eased through the 1st Round of the Durham Challenge Cup with a 5-2 win at Ryhope Colliery Welfare, with the game won inside six dramatic first-half minutes. Our first visit to Meadow Park in 42 years began disastrously when ex-Steelman David Pounder smashed one into the top corner from 25 yards after two minutes to put the 2nd Division side ahead. Aris Guerin-Lokonga levelled 10 minutes later, and looked certain to score a second on 23 minutes until Ryhope's other Consett old boy, goalkeeper Barry Poskett, handled outside the box, and was sent off. Player-manager Gary Pearson went in goal, but his first task was to pick the ball out of the net three minutes later as Josh Gray's cross from the left squirmed under his body at the near post. A minute later it was 3-1 as Gray's cross gave Michael Mackay an easy finish. Then on 29 minutes Gray rifled a shot into the top corner to make it 4-1, and Mackay added a fifth goal eight minutes before the break, pictured, to give Consett a 5-1 half-time lead. With the game effectively over, Consett took their foot off the pedal in the second half, though Calvin Smith headed against the bar and a deflected Guerin-Lokonga shot hit the post. To their credit, 10-man Ryhope created several chances of their own, and got their reward with an 89-minute consolation goal from Martin Metcalfe. Consett will face Gateshead Reserves in the 2nd Round, with the tie to be played by 10 January.

A quick bit of fixture news, next week's away fixture with Shildon has now been switched to a home game for us on Tuesday 18 November 2014 with a 7.30 kick off..

8 November 2014


Consett had to settle for a share of the spoils after a 1-1 draw with Newcastle Benfield at a foggy Belle View Stadium. The visitors were grateful to their third-choice goalkeeper Sean Korsbo, called in as a late replacement for Sam Busby who had injured himself in the warm-up. The young stopper pulled off a string of impressive saves to earn his side a point. A goalless first half was held up for 12 minutes when on of the linesmen injured himself and a replacement was sought from the crowd. Benfield took the lead on 63 minutes through Dan Taylor who converted from close range with Consett appealing in vain for offside. The visitors' lead lasted just eight minutes though, when ex-Steelman Stephen Tobin headed a Josh Gray cross into his own net.

The draw for the 2nd Round of the FA Vase took place today, and in a spooky echo of our FA Cup progress - where a win over Silsden brought us the reward of a home tie against Whickham - our win in the 1st Round of the Vase against Silsden on Saturday again brought us the reward of a home tie against Whickham! The match is to be played on Saturday 22 November 2014.

1 November 2014


Two goals from Michael Mackay - his 18th and 19th of the season - saw Consett beat Silsden 2-1 in a tight FA Vase 1st Round encounter at Belle View Stadium. He put them ahead with his first touch on 21 seconds, supplying an unerring finish to Chris Moore's pass as the Steelmen won possession from the visitors' kick-off. And a 54th-minute penalty after Matty Slocombe was bundled over seemed to put Consett in control, pictured. The West Yorkshire side made it an uneasy last few minutes, however, as left-back Ben Crabtree curled a 20-yard free-kick round the wall and in off the post. But the home defence held firm to take their place in Monday's 2nd Round draw.

> Match report and pictures

In other news, Consett won't have a midweek game this week, as both their previously-scheduled opponents are involved in cup ties, Shildon in the Durham Challenge Cup, and DCC opponents Ryhope CW in a Vase replay. The next game will be at home to Newcastle Benfield on Saturday.

30 October 2014

In today's Durham Challenge Cup 2nd Round draw, the winners of the postponed tie between Ryhope CW and Consett will face Conference side Gateshead away. The match is to be played by Saturday 10 January 2015.

28 October 2014

Consett's Durham Challenge Cup tie away at Ryhope CW was postponed this evening due to a waterlogged pitch at Ryhope Recreation Ground.

25 October 2014


Consett beat Crook Town 5-0 at Belle View Stadium today, but it took a debatable goal to get the scoring underway on 41 minutes. Calvin Smith's powerful header from Chris Moore's cross (pictured) was parried up in the air by visiting keeper Ryan Graham, who then appeared to have just prevented the ball crossing the line. The linesman thought otherwise and signalled to the referee that it was a goal to set the Steelmen on their way. Four minutes later it was 2-0 as the keeper saved Aris Guerin-Lokonga's header from Smith's corner, but Jonny Wright reacted quickest to smash the ball home from point-blank range. Midway through the second half it was 3-0, as Michael Mackay took the ball down superbly and set up Moore to chip the keeper. Consett had to wait until the 86th minute for the next goal, as the returning Danny Craggs - on as a half-time sub - rolled a free-kick into the path of Smith to fire into the bottom corner. Two more subs, Chris Youldon and Luke Sullivan, combined right on time to make it 5-0, with Sully rounding the keeper to score.

21 October 2014


Michael Mackay's 17th goal of the season gave Consett a 1-0 win over Guisborough Town at a windswept Belle View. He struck after 14 minutes, firing home a first-time shot from 15 yards with his left foot from Matty Slocombe's pass. Both sides played better against the wind than with it, and the Steelmen were grateful to keeper Chris Elliott for several good saves in the second half, particularly after they were reduced to 10 men by Ryan Bell's second yellow card.

Consett had an afternoon to forget at Jarrow Roofing, losing 5-0, with home striker John Campbell helping himself to all five goals. He opened the scoring in the first minute with a clinical finish, and made it two on 19 minutes, from ex-Steelman Lewis Teasdale's pass. He completed his hat-trick five minutes before half-time, with a penalty awarded for a push on Dan Kirkup at a corner. Consett had their chances, with Calvin Smith's cross helped onto the post by the keeper at 1-0, and Luke Sullivan hitting the other upright with a header at 2-0. Once again the misses proved costly, as Campbell made it 4-0 a minute into the second half, pictured. His fifth goal, in the 73rd minute, was the best of the lot, when he spotted Chris Elliott off his line and lobbed him from fully 50 yards, from a position near the left touchline. Consett almost grabbed a late consolation, but the keeper touched substitute Adam Nicholls' effort onto the bar.

Missed chances proved costly for Consett as they were beaten 3-1 by Dunston UTS at Belle View - their first home defeat of the season. Old boy Gary Ormston opened the scoring on 11 minutes, being given time and space at a corner to turn and fire home from eight yards. The closest Consett came to an equaliser in a fog-bound first half was a Chris Moore 20-yarder which visiting keeper Liam Connell touched onto the post. It took just two minutes of the second half for the Steelmen to level, with Michael Mackay scoring a rare header from Josh Gray's cross. Consett looked like they might go on to win the game, but squandered a hatful of chances. They paid the price when Dunston regained the lead through Jonny Wightman on 76 minutes and another old boy, Andrew Bulford - one of six ex-Consett players in the Tynesiders' 16 - clinched the points two minutes later.

A goal fest at Belle View as Consett defeated a youthful Newcastle under 21 side 7-4. Remarkably, Consett were 5-0 up at half time with a penalty from Michael MacKay and a solo effort from Adam Nicholls adding to a superb Luke Sullivan hat trick. The vistitors were much improved in the second half and registered goals through Tom Heardman (2) Greg Olley and Stefan Broccoli while Sullivan notched his fourth for the Steelmen in addition to a strike from Chris Moore.

In other news, player-coach Steve Bowey has left the club to return to Newcastle Benfield after they parted company with their manager Neil Saxton. 'Bowser', who signed in the summer, made six substitute appearances for the Steelmen, scoring twice - the crucial third in the 4-2 win at Penrith and the last in the 5-0 FA Vase win at Hall Road Rangers. All at Belle View Stadium wish him well - apart from when he returns with Benfield on 8 November!


8 October 2014

CONSETT AFC’s latest addition to their backroom staff is one which will raise eyebrows in the Northern League and beyond – former Newcastle United Academy development coach Willie Donachie. The former Manchester City and Scotland defender agreed to help out after striking up a relationship with chairman Frank Bell after bringing his Magpies side for the opening game at Belle View Stadium last November.

“Willie rang me a couple of weeks ago and asked if there was any way he could be of assistance to us, " said Frank. "You’re not going to turn down the chance to have the benefit of a coach with his experience, so I nearly took his hand off. He’s watched our last three games, at Morpeth, Hall Road Rangers and Bishop Auckland, and has already suggested a few areas where we might improve. I’m absolutely delighted he’s helping us out, he’s very professional, with a brilliant pedigree, and we can only benefit from his experience.”

Willie, 63, had been coaching in California since leaving Newcastle United in February, and hopes to find another full-time job in the professional game, but is happy to lend a hand at Consett until something permanent comes along. “I was

very impressed with the set-up at Consett when I was here with Newcastle, and I thought they were very nice people. I’d been coaching out in America, in California, and when that came to end I came home to see if there was anything for me in England. When nothing came up, I rang Frank and asked if I could help in any way. There’s a lot of fear in football, with managers and coaches thinking that you’re after their job, but that’s not the case here. Everybody has been so friendly, which was made me think of the club in the first place when I found myself at a loose end.

“Manager Kenny Lindoe has been very receptive to the things I’ve suggested, and in Simon Harris, Consett have a very good up and coming coach who will do very well in the game. I like what Frank and his staff are trying to build at Consett, making the club part of the community, and I’m trying to help in whatever way I can. Yes, there’s a big gulf between players who are hoping to make it in the Premier League and those in the Northern League, but I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen so far. Some of the players here are technically very good, but the difference is that they’re not training full-time. I want to work with anyone who wants to work and learn, whether they’re young pros or non-league players. I just want to help them improve. When I was at Newcastle I coached the Under-12s as well as the Under-21s – I just want to help players realise their potential.”

With nearly 600 games as a pro to his name at Manchester City, Norwich City, Burnley and Oldham Athletic, not to mention 35 full caps for Scotland, and managerial experience at Millwall and Antigua & Barbuda, as well as coaching at Newcastle and a host of other clubs, Willie certainly has the credentials to make a difference at Belle View.


7 October 2014

Consett had to settle for a share of the spoils after a 1-1 draw with Bishop Auckland at Heritage Park in a game they could and probably should have won. After a tepid first half-hour the Steelmen came alive as half-time approached, but the score remained 0-0. They went ahead on 68 minutes with a controversial goal from Michael Mackay, his 15th of the season. Adam Nicholls' cross from the left saw Aris Guerin-Lokonga challenge for the ball with Bishops keeper Scott Pocklington, who went down clutching his head. The home defenders claimed a foul, but Mackay played on, slotted the ball home from 10 yards, pictured, and referee Lindsey Robinson let the goal stand. Bishops levelled on 82 minutes, when Kyle Davis slipped his marker to volley home a cross at the back post. Full match report and pictures to follow.

6 October 2014

Consett have announced that they will be playing a Newcastle United XI this Thursday 9 October 2014 at Belle View with a 7.00pm kick off. Admission is £6 adults, £3 concessions and £1 under-16s.

In today's FA Vase 1st Round draw, Consett were handed a home tie against North West Counties League side Silsden. We have, of course, aleady met once this season, when the Steelmen travelled to their Angel Telecom Stadium for an FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round tie in August and returned with a 2-0 victory. The tie will be played at Belle View on Saturday 1 November.

4 October 2014

A 12-minute Michael Mackay hat-trick provided the platform for Consett to ease through the 2nd Qualifying Round of the FA Vase with a comfortable 5-0 win at Hall Road Rangers' Dene Park ground. He opened the scoring against the Northern Counties East League 1st Division side after just seven minutes, finishing at the second attempt from Adam Nicholls' pass, pictured. Three minutes later the Steelmen were in complete control when Calvin Smith spotted the keeper off his line and lobbed him from 30 yards. On 15 minutes Mackay scored his second, firing past the keeper after Chris Moore's pass sent him clear. And four minutes later the game was effectively over, as Josh Gray provided the pass for Mackay to complete his hat-trick. Consett had many more chances, but had to wait until the 80th minute for another goal, when substitute Steve Bowey sidefooted home after good work down the left by Mark Eccles and Moore.

1 October 2014

CONSETT brought their four-match losing streak away from home to an end after coming from behind to beat fourth-placed Morpeth Town 3-2 at Craik Park. Matty Slocombe got the Steelmen off to an ideal start, firing home the rebound after his shot had come back off the post after good work by Adam Nicholls down the left. But Morpeth skipper Sean Taylor headed them level on 18 minutes, then fired them ahead on the half-hour from the edge of the box. Calvin Smith made it all square a minute before the break with a 22-yard free-kick which took a slight deflection off the wall. The winner came seven minutes into the second half when man-of-the-match Nicholls surged forward from midfield and played in Aris Guerin-Lokonga, who, despite the close attentions of a defender, finished into the top corner for his first goal of the season. His celebration is pictured above.

CONSETT slumped to their third defeat in a week and their fourth in the last five games after a worryingly toothless display saw them go down 0-3 at the Daren Persson Stadium against promoted North Shields. The Steelmen trailed 0-1 at half time to a Denver Morris close range header in the 14th minute. Despite a better performance in the second half, two goals from Gareth Bainbridge - scored in the 63rd and 89th minutes - sealed their fate.

23 September 2014


A third defeat in four games saw Consett bow out of the Brooks Mileson League Cup in the 1st Round, as they were beaten 2-1 at Dunston UTS. The home side took the lead on 25 minutes when Jordan Galloway, making his first start, lost the ball just outside his own box, and grateful striker Daniel Wilson accepted the gift, firing across Chris Elliott into the far corner. Playing with an experimental formation, the Steelmen created little in the first half, but drew level within three minutes of the restart, with skipper Dan Madden getting his first goal from the club from a half-cleared corner, pictured. Parity only lasted six minutes, however, as Wilson took advantage of another defensive mistake to score what turned out to be the winner.

20 September 2014

A below-par performance at Woodhorn Lane saw Consett's unbeaten start to their Northern League season come to an end today when they lost 2-0 at Ashington. They fell behind after 27 minutes when they gave the ball away in midfield, and a swift Colliers break was finished from close range by right-back Lance McGlen. Chris Elliott made a flying save from old boy Marc Walton's header to keep the score at 1-0 at half-time as Consett struggled to get going. They thought they had equalised two minutes into the second half, when Carl Piecha headed home from a corner, only to see his 'goal' ruled out for a foul. The Steelmen created and squandered several more chances, though Michael Mackay was unlucky to see a shot hit the underside of the bar and bounce out with seven minutes to go, pictured. He then had the ball in the net after latching onto Aris Guerin-Lokonga's flick-on and rounding the keeper, but was flagged offside. But there was no way back when a cross from the left was laid back in to the path of - who else? - Walton, who sealed the win three minutes left.

16 September 2014

Consett made it three wins in three home league games, with 15 goals scored and none conceded, when they beat Celtic Nation 4-0 at Belle View Stadium. Luke Sullivan opened the scoring on 13 minutes when he beat keeper Adam Coward to Josh Gray's left-wing cross to stab the ball home from seven yards. A couple of minutes before half-time it was two when a defender tried to head Chris Elliott's huge punt downfield back to his keeper, sold him short, and Michael Mackay nipped in to score. Chris Moore got in on the act on 57 minutes, rifling into the bottom corner from just outside the box. And Mackay completed the scoring five minutes later with his 11th goal in 11 games. A superb Calvin Smith pass from deep inside his own half sent him clear, and he kept his nerve to slot past the keeper. Smith almost made it five with the last kick of the game, but his audacious 50-yard lob dropped just over the bar after he spotted the keeper off his line.

13 September 2014

Consett bowed out of the FA Cup with their heads held high despite being beaten 2-0 at Workington's Borough Park in the 1st Qualifying Round. They went behind on 12 minutes when left winger Adam Telfer marked his debut by cutting inside and unleashing an unstoppable shot into the far corner. On 38 minutes the Reds grabbed a second, when Daniel Wordsworth thumped a header against the bar from a right-wing corner, and the ball fell at the feet of his fellow centre-half Kyle May to stab home from close range. Consett, who'd had more of the possession without being able to turn it into clear-cut chances against opponents two divisions above them, had a strong penalty appeal turned down within a minute when Josh Gray appeared to have his legs whipped from under him. The second half again saw the Steelmen play the better football, but they were unable to break down their well-drilled Evo-Stik Premier League hosts. Their best chance came four minutes from the end when Steve Bowey was thwarted by keeper Jonny Jamieson, pictured.

This Saturday, 13 September, Consett are playing away at Workington in the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Cup (NB - NOT Guisborough Town at home as previously stated on this site). The club have a bus going to the match which is leaving from the ground at 10.30 am, the cost being £10.00.

10 September 2014

Consett extended their unbeaten run to nine games and picked up their first three-point haul of the season on their travels with a hard-earned 4-2 win at Penrith's Frenchfield Park. Michael Mackay gave the Steelmen an 18th-minute lead, latching on to Josh Gray's pass and slotting past keeper Joshua Richardson, pictured. But the sides went in level after the Cumbrians equalised right on half-time through Ryan Hall, who was left with a one-on-one against Chris Elliott. Four minutes into the second half the home side took the lead through Matthew Read, but Matty Slocombe made it 2-2 on 54 minutes, firing home from 18 yards. It was two inspired substitutions which won the game for Consett. First, veteran player-coach Steve Bowey restored the lead on 76 minutes, bundling home Chris Moore's deep cross at the far post for his first goal for the club. Then Luke Sullivan made certain of the points in the 89th minute, timing his run to perfection to side home Calvin Smith's cross.

6 September 2014

All roads still lead to Wembley for Consett as they recorded a hard fought 2-1 win over Northern Counties East Premier side Thackley at Belle View in the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Vase. A late header from substitute Adam Nicholls sent the home side through after the sides had gone to the interval at 1-1 - a 30th minute own goal from Liam Hudson cancelling out Chris Davey's 14th minute opener for the visitors. Thackley did exert more pressure in the final minutes but they couldn't find the breakthrough and Consett saw the game out to set up a tie away to Hall Road Rangers.

2 September 2014

Consett continued their impressive start to the season with a convincing 7-0 win over West Allotment Celtic at Belle View Stadium this evening. Ryan Bell set the ball rolling on 16 minutes with a 25-yard rocket, and it stayed 1-0 until the 35th minute when three quickfire Consett goals killed the contest. Michael Mackay made it 2-0 from the penalty spot before adding the third five minutes later. A stooping header from Calvin Smith on the stroke of half time made it 4-0 at the break. Luke Sullivan latched onto a superb ball from Chris Moore to chip the keeper three minutes into the second half, and on 62 minutes Carl Piecha headed home the sixth. Mackay completed his hat trick with another header ten minutes from the end to round off a highly satisfactory night's work for the Steelmen.
