Just before the interval Shaw was again on target and although the Londoners came more into the picture during the second half, they never threatened Billy Irwin’s side. Ashington conceded two goals in the opening 12 minutes at Shortwood United and never looked like getting back into the tie.

John Cant and Kevin Slack were the early marksmen and ten minutes into the second half, any hopes the Colliers harboured, ended as Tim Haddock struck to make the final score 3-0.
