Arms raised in triumph in the Bedlington battle

Morpeth Sunday League round-up

Division One

The only Division One game that took place this week was the Bedlington derby and it was Bedlington Barrington Arms who triumphed as they edged out The Wharton Arms 3-2.

The Barrington took the lead midway through the first half with midfielder Chris Moffitt playing a great through-ball for Dylan Williamson, who made no mistake with a low, driven finish into the bottom left-hand corner of the goal.

The Wharton grabbed a scrappy equaliser in the second half with a close-range finish from Curtis Taylor after The Monkey failed to deal with a corner.

The lead was regained shortly after though, as a great free-kick into the box from Moffitt was volleyed home by Josh Laverick.

The Wharton looked to have earned themselves a point when Scott Hume scored from the edge of the box with a great strike into the top corner with only minutes remaining, but there was still one more twist in this game.

Barrington substitute Shaun Cowell made a great surging run into the Wharton half before slipping in David Scott, who really should have done better as his initial shot was parried by goalkeeper Liam Douglas.

But the ball fell at the feet of Williamson, who made no mistake with a cool finish to seal another derby win.

Division Two

North End Trap sit top of the table after defeating HMP Northumberland 3-2.

On target for The Trap were Marc Mavin (two) and Josh Baston.

The HMP goals were scored by Ryan McCue and Dale Huggins.

North End are four points clear, but the teams around them all have games in hand.

Morpeth Shambles picked up a good win against second-in-the-table East Chevington thanks to goals from Stuart Melville and Jack Palmer.

The East Chevington reply was scored by Adam Shanks.

Amble Dock Hotel overcame The Elephant 3-2 with a brace from Ali Douglass and a single effort from Brad Little. The Elephant goals were scored by Michael Carr and Daniel Humble.

Finally in Division Two this week, Alnmouth Argyle and Amble Blue Bell played out a 0-0 draw.
