Jarrow suffered a 4-1 away defeat at the hands of Silksworth in round one of the Monkwearmouth Charity Cup

Jarrow started the game on the front foot and took the lead in the 12th minute when Kai Elliott fired home a direct from a free-kick.

However, in the 39th minute, a Dean Randall header levelled things up for Silksworth.

Jarrow again started the half the better team, but Steven Moody made it 2-1 to the home side when he tapped in from three yards and James Cook made it 3-1 from close range.

Although Rob Hall missed his penalty late on, he followed up to score from the rebound, after keeper Gary Frayter had saved the initial shot.

Dave Bell said after the defeat: “We played quite well, but again our quality was nowhere near our usual standard.

“It was a disappointing day for us, but too many of our players didn’t perform to their capability.

“We need to pick ourselves up from this disappointment quickly and get back to winning ways as quickly as possible.”
