Jarrow supremo looks to the positives from away point
Jarrow boss Dave Bell had to be content with a point when his team were held to a 1-1 draw away at Ryton and Crawcrook in the Ebac Northern League Division Two.
Bell said after the game: “Looking at the positives, we have picked up a point away from home with an under par performance and will again work hard on what we need to improve on. The work rate of the lads was again first class.”
Jarrow took the lead when Peter Kane’s header was saved, but the ball fell to Josh Allan, who scored from close range.
Ryton equalised when a long throw was flicked on and the ball found its way into the net.
Bell added: “We never got going at all and our passing was nowhere near the level we would expect it to be at.”
