MORPETH SUNDAY LEAGUE ROUND-UP
GEORGE CAVE CUP
WITH the Amble Pier 81 against Stakeford Half Moon game cancelled, Bedlington Barrington Arms were the only team to progress in the George Cave Cup.
Goals by Paul Dunn, Stephen Cowell and Chris Hay earned a good win at the expense of Woodhorn Lane, for whom Liam Dryden replied.
THE only Division One game saw Red Row Brick Club gain a comfortable 3-1 win against local rivals Stobswood Welfare.
Adam Shanks bagged a couple of goals and Joe Henderson also grabbed one, with Billy Wade getting Stobswood’s consolation.
AMBLE Dock and Morpeth Chantry shared the spoils in a close match.
Carl Taylor got both Dock’s counters, but goals from brothers Mark and Robert Wilkinson levelled the score, to gain Chantry a point.
In a game of two halves at Broomhill, North End Trap and Blackthorn Rovers also ended in stalemate. Stuart Oman grabbed the goal for Trap and Dan Poole hit the equaliser for Rovers.
Riverside Lodge ran up a 7-1 win over luckless Alnmouth Argyle, with half the team claiming a goal. Liam Marshal got two and Darren Percy, Connor Oliver, Liam Watson, Marc Chapman and David Tench all had their moments of goal glory.
Argyle’s lone counter came from club secretary Sean Henderson and this hard-working club man certainly deserved the fillip of getting his side’s only goal.
Felton FC ran up a 5-1 defeat of East Chevington, with goals from Tony Brown (two), Gareth McCann, Matt Fowler and Jon Snaith. Zac Blakey got Chev’s consolation.
IN the NFA Sunday Cup, Stakeford Half Moon gave a good account of themselves, at Cullercoats Formica, going down narrowly 2-1, despite being reduced to 10 men.
