Lenell John-Lewis' early strike and a fine finish by Paddy McLaughlin gave the Mariners a win against a Sunderland Xl side tonight.

Craig Disley and Craig Clay formed the Mariners' central midfield partnership, with Scott Neilson and Caine Winfarrah on the Town flanks. Ross Hannah and lenell John-Lewis were Town's starting frontmen.    

The Mariners taken the lead on 10 minutes when Paul Walker got the better of a Sunderland defender before delivering a superb cross, right on the the toe of John-Lewis to fire home.

And Town had to wait until four minutes from time to score a second and deserved goal. Paddy McLaughlin curled one past Stryjek into the far corner.
