TyneMet's football and basketball teams are celebrating after a hat-trick of victories over rival North East Colleges.

In basketball, the second team made a great start to the season beating Newcastle College. The Score - TyneMet (2nds) 81, Newcastle (1sts) 69.

The team was coached by new addition to the coaching staff and last season's academy captain, Shaun Malone.

In football, TyneMet under 18s beat East Durham College 8-2 in the North East College League with a great performance against a bigger and stronger East Durham team. TyneMet were trailing to an early goal but our players showed immense character and skill to fight back with the pick of the goals from Liam Taylor who scored with a 30 yard screamer.

TyneMet also took on Gateshead College in an ECFA derby game at Gateshead and came away with the points in a seven goal thriller winning 4-3.

Three great results against strong local opposition and a great start to the season.
