Ashington FC defender Andrew Cartwright said he was ‘buzzing’ – after scoring a stunning winner at Guisborough on Saturday which secured his side all three points.

Cartwright’s moment of glory came with only six minutes of the 90 remaining. After playing a one-two with substitute Dean Briggs, he let fly with a thunderous right foot drive from 18 yards which left home ‘keeper Will Cowey helpless: “I’m buzzing,” said a beaming Cartwright afterwards, “I just smacked the ball and hoped for the best. When it flew in I was naturally delighted and with the goal coming near the end to win the game, it felt even better.”

The 28 year old added: “First half they (Guisborough) came out quick but we weathered the storm until half time and there’s no way a team can run that much in the first half and continue in the same vein after the interval. We rolled them over in the second half and deserved the win.”
