Choppington Travellers Rest are fast becoming the league’s cup specialists and they again claimed silverware as they defeated Bedlington Station Railway 2-1 in the Lewin Cup Final at the weekend.

It was a tense affair with the wind causing problems for both sides. Steven Young had scored for the Travs but a wonder strike from Jamie Chapman saw the game level and it looked like going to extra-time but Johnny Young grabbed a late winner for the Travs to send their huge following home happy.

Travellers keeper Johnny Taylor claimed the man-of-the-match award as a string of fine saves helped his side to victory.

Stobswood Welfare’s fine season in Division One is still going strong and they won again 4-1 at home to Woodhorn Lane, David Curtis and Rob Baker again on the scoresheet for the hosts, who held onto third place.

Amble Pier 81 are finishing the season strongly and a 3-1 midweek home win over Bomarsund was followed by a 3-2 win at home to Red Row Brick Club. Darren Riddell, with two, and Chris Graham won it for the home side. Josh Rutherford and Adam Shanks scored the Brick Clubs goals.

East Chevington had a well-deserved win away to a woeful Bomarsund SC who took the lead through Kris Grey but a second-half blockbuster from David Shepherd put the Tute level and Sean Palmer’s late winner ensured three points in a 2-1 win.

Ellington put themselves in pole position to gain promotion from Division Two as they beat rivals North End Trap 4-0 at home. Adam Nevin struck a fine hat-trick, while the other came from Andrew Neil.

Sporting Club had a great win at home to a depleted Felton FC. Steven Bird hit three, as Mark Jewitt and Chris Millican grabbed the others in a 5-3 victory. Alex Makin (two) and James Jackson replied for Felton.

Morpeth Chantry had strikes from Liam O’Brien, Mark Wilkinson, Ben Fenwick, Andrew McKay, Peter Allaway and Edwin Brown to thank for a 6-1 win over Alnmouth Argyle, who replied through Brett Rodgerson.
