Match 44
9th April 1960
Gateshead (a)

And in the Southern League
City Reserves v Sittingbourne

GATESHEAD 1 (MURRAY) EXETER CITY 0
AT GATESHEAD. 
SATURDAY APRIL 9th
GATESHEAD COULD HAVE HAD MORE GOALS.

Gateshead, fourth from the bottom place in the League, played well above their usual form and deservedly took both points from their home match with Exeter City. They were the better team for most of the 90 minutes and ought to have had more goals.

Gateshead:- Williamson; Dawson, Lackenby; Redhead, G. Trewick, Ait ken; Stephenson, Lumley, A. Trewick, Murray, Steele.

Exeter City: Lobbett; Foley, MacDonald; Mitchell, Harvey, Thompson; Stiffle, Hill, Wilkinson, Rees, Dale.

The City played with the wind behind them in the first half but were fortunate not to be a goal or two down at the interval. Gateshead scored in the 64th minute, and although on the play they ought to have had more goals that one was enough. In football ability the Tynesiders, despite their lowly position in the League, were well ahead of Exeter. Hill, the scorer of 19 goals for the Reserves, came in at inside-right, but little was seen of him.

Southern League 
City Reserves v Sittingbourne 

The Reserves beat Sittingbourne by 2 goals to nil, with goals by Micklewright and Bennett
