A MAJORITY of Morpeth Sunday League sides were in cup action at the weekend as some of the semi-finalists in the Lewin and Dobfar cups were decided.

Felton were the victors in a ten-goal thriller to book their place in the semis of the ACS Dobfar Cup.

Blackthorn Rovers were 3-0 up before Felton fought back to 3-2 at the break.

The home side went ahead, before having a man sent off and the scores were levelled by Blackthorn.

Two more goals from Felton ensured they went through to the next round.

Elsewhere, in a battle of Division Two’s top sides, league leaders Ashington RAOB also booked their spot in the semi-final of the Dobfar Cup.

The Buffs won 2-1 at second-placed Village Inn Longframlington thanks to two Stu Douglas goals.

Two fixtures were played in Division Two with Morpeth Chantry getting a chance to go top with other sides on cup duty at home against East Chevington.

Chantry went 3-0 up and must have thought the three points were in the bag with Mark Jewitt (2) and Peter Allaway on the scoresheet, but East Chev fought back for a share of the spoils, a valuable point for the side who have won just once all season.

The only side with a worse record in Division Two is Alnmouth Argyle and they showed no sign of stopping the rot and halting their run of eight league defeats as they slumped to a 9-0 defeat at Newbiggin Bankhouse.
