Premier Sports Performance of the Week – Gateshead Thunder
Neighbour’s men won 24-22 against Hemel Stags to complete their most successful season since 2008.
Neighbour said: “We did it the hard way again, but we like to keep things exciting.”
He added: “I’m leaving the club in the best possible state. It’s taken a lot of hours and a lot of hard work, but it has all come to fruition.
“In the last six games we’ve got three wins, a draw and picked up bonus points against Rochdale and North Wales – and that’s the form of a top two team.”
He showed brilliant footwork to beat three defenders in quick succession, then accelerated clear and finding enough pace to hold off the chasing Rob Massam.
Clark said: “Dalton definitely has all the attributes to kick into the national squad. He’s had a great season for us.”
