THE KICKS LEISURE CHALLENGE CUP FINAL (at Amberley Park, Killingworth)

Heaton Stannington 2 Whitley Bay A 2 (after extra-time – Whitley Bay A won 5-4 on penalties)

Whitley Bay A goalkeeper Michael Hammond was the hero as he pulled off two saves in the penalty shoot-out – then stepped up and fired in the winning spot-kick.

Hammond had also pulled off a stunning save to deny Heaton Stannington a last-gasp winner in the dying seconds of the second period of extra-time.

Craig Smith fired in from the penalty-spot to give the Seahorses a 33rd minute lead but Ben Telford levelled in the 57th minute when he cut in from the right and struck a fine drive into the top corner from just outside the box.

Alex Redfern restored the Whitley Bay A advantage five minutes into the first period of extra-time but, with the clock ticking down, Gary Dixon showed nerves of steel to fire in a last-minute penalty that took the Final to the thrilling shoot-out.

Premier DIVISION

Hebburn Reyrolle 1 Percy Main Ams 2

Hebburn Reyrolle’s Championship dreams turned into a nightmare as they were reduced to nine men in a bad-tempered game.

Manager Mark Collinwood was also banished from the touchline as Percy Main pulled off a surprise win that leaves Reyrolle three points behind leaders Heaton Stannington with just one game to play – and an inferior goal difference of seven.

Percy Main boss Gareth Allen fired them ahead in the first minute and it got worse for Reyrolle just eight minutes later as Tony Abladey netted number two.

Channon North gave the South Tynesiders hope when he struck a minute after the break but, when Alan Pegram and Davie Southern were both sent for early baths as their frustrations boiled over, it soon faded.

Division ONE

Jordan Nellis and Justin Millican were on target for Wallington as they cemented third spot in Division One with Andy McBride netting for basement side Morpeth Sporting.

Division TWO

Goals from Si Wilson, Adam Gibson and Nicky Whitelaw gave Wallsend Boys Club the three points at Alnwick Town Reserves in Division Two, while Bedlington Terriers Reserves beat Northbank 2-0 with goals from Simon Brown in the 18th minute and Dylan Williamson in the 90th.
