At the Mike Hodgson Testimonial match which was held on Sunday 1st September at the Sportsfield, there was also the opportunity for Stephen Trousdale to present Kirkbymoorside Football Club with £160. He ran the Kirkby 10k in memory of club press officer Malcolm Mudd, who died in December last year following a short illness. In […]
Well done to all the organisers of the Family Funday last weekend – a lovely sunny day and a good crowd meant that £650 was raised for Kirkbymoorside Junior Football Club.
A poor second half performance saw Kirkbymoorside comprehensively beaten at home by Darlington Cleveland Bridge but were left cursing a poor refereeing error on which the game turned just before the break. A spectacular long-range goal by the returning midfielder Sarjo Cham, who spotted the Darlington ‘keeper Marc Briggs off his line and executed a […]
An injury time penalty cost Kirkbymoorside two points in a home fixture they really ought to have won against re-election battlers Coxhoe Athletic. Left-back Kev Oxendale was penalized for holding at the last of a succession of corner kicks in added time and Coxhoe captain Stephen Parnaby sent Marc Tansey the wrong way from twelve […]
Kirkby edged by table toppers In front of a good crowd at the Sportsfield the Moorsiders battled hard against a strong, physical, vocal and well organised Willington side. In an even first half of few chances Connor Campbell hooked wide after a poor clearance from Willington keeper Moffatt and Marc Tansey produced a wonderful save […]
Kirkbymoorside got their second away win of the season with a 3-0 success at a blustery Hartlepool. The visitors took the lead in the 32nd minute courtesy of the excellent Tom Ellis who outpaced his marker and beat the home keeper low to his left. In the second half the Moorsiders were totally dominant and […]
Moorsiders late show sees off Rangers Two injury time goals saw the home side narrowly defeat the visitors from Gateshead in front of the biggest crowd of the season at the Sportsfield. A 4th game in 8 days for the Moorsiders against mid table Gateshead Leam Lane Rangers coupled with yet another inconsistent refereeing performance […]
Kirkbymoorside showed a battling spirit and a tenacious performance to earn a well deserved draw against high flying Jarrow. Following more late withdrawals player manager Alex Strickland was once again forced to shuffle the pack and included himself at left back for the fixture against 4th placed Jarrow. It looked like it was going to […]
In a classic game of two halves the Moorsiders once again came home empty handed. A game which the visitors should have had wrapped up by half time ended in defeat due mainly to a woeful second half performance. As early as the second minute Darlington took the lead with a fluke goal when Brad […]
Kirkbymoorside fought back from a goal down to earn a deserved win against Boldon CA. Marcus Godsell, Jordan Rivis and Sarjo Cham were on target for the home side in a match played in freezing temperatures that had little to do with early spring. The weather had done for almost the entire programme in the […]
Kirkby fell to another, but very unlucky defeat on their travels, this time at a cold and foggy Peterlee. Manager Alex Strickland returned to lead the line in a strong and physical looking line up for the Moorsiders at Peterlee on a cold and foggy Wednesday evening. The strength of his squad was tested to […]
Defensive woes cost Moorsiders. A patched-up Kirkbymoorside defence struggled to keep Peterlee Town at bay and the home side’s recent good home form came to a crashing halt with a 4-1 defeat that was only a fair reflection of the balance of play. Peterlee were themselves without a large number of first team players who […]
Player manager Alex Strickland gave a virtuoso centre forward performance that rolled back the years to inspire 9 man Kirkbymoorside to a thrilling victory against Prudhoe Town. Top half side Prudhoe Town arrived surely expecting a repeat of their recent 3-1 cup win over the Moorsiders but came up against a skilful and resilient Kirkbymoorside. […]

A first home game since 24 November following two inspections saw the Moorsiders fall to a narrow defeat against a much improved and free scoring Celtic. With Manager Strickland absent it was left to new number 2 Roy Brown to select the line up which was somewhat hindered by the late withdrawal of Kwami and […]

This was a closely matched game and Kirkby continued their recent upturn in form by gaining all three points against a side with only two losses in the league so far and if they had won would have moved into the top 6 with games in hand. With games to come over the next few […]
The Moorsiders finally got the rewards that their brand of fluent passing football which has been evident in recent outings deserved with this convincing performance against mid table Belford House. They have had very little luck in the last few games but here they were gifted an opening goal early on and went on to […]
A quite bizarre match watched by only a handful of spectators saw the Moorsiders crash out of the Monkwearmouth Cup. On a perfect afternoon for both playing and watching it was a shame that not more supporters turned out to watch a thoroughly entertaining, if somewhat bizarre match. Manager Strickland was forced to make his […]
The Moorsiders slipped to an underserved home defeat despite playing some excellent football.On a near perfect pitch after heavy lunchtime rain the game started brightly with the Moorsiders showing their early intent. As early as the 5th minute a speculative effort from fully 30 yeards by Henry Kwami bounced back into play off the crossbar […]
Another hugely entertaining match saw the Moorsiders record their second vistory of the season. Yet again many changes due to injuries and absence saw the introduction of three new players to the Moorsiders line up with Jack Walsh at right back, Richard Okeahiazam and Wayne Moon in central midfield. In perfect conditions it took the […]
