Division One

In the only Division One game this week, The Wharton Arms finally managed to defeat their local rivals Bedlington Barrington Arms by a 2-1 scoreline.

The Wharton took the lead early in the first half as a good set-piece delivery into the box by full-back Ben Lorking was headed into his own net by Barrington midfielder Roy Pattison.

‘The Monkey’ equalised early in the second half after a crisp passing move was tapped in from close-range by Shaun Cowell.

But it was The Wharton who took the spoils as they went ahead when a free-kick was deflected off the wall and into the path of Lorking, who drilled a smart finish into the bottom left-hand corner from the edge of the box.

Division Two

East Chevington played out a 1-1 draw with HMP Northumberland.
