Mark Andrews, Connor Andrews, Dan Beresford and Ian Lee got the others, with Jordan Bolton netting a consolation.

Wallsend Town had Paul Gordon and Paul McHutcheon on target in their win over Killingworth Station, who replied through Lee Hamilton, while Sam Grieveson and Matty Hayton scored for Walker Central in their win at Rutherford, who had levelled through Will Forsyth.


Second division Wallsend Boys Club sent Seaton Delaval crashing out of the Archers of Blyth George Dobbins League Cup on penalties. Man-of-the-match Michael Starkie netted twice for Wallsend, with Andy Potter and Adam Tierney getting the others.

Liam Vaughan, Michael McMullen, Matthew Bailey and Stephen Howes were on target for Delaval.

First division Longbenton pulled off a shock as they beat Percy Main, with a goal in each half from David Short and Rob Wood.

Matthew Lavender shot Blyth Isabella ahead at Ashington Colliers but the black and whites turned things around with goals from Brent Aisbitt and Ross Gair, while Shankhouse were also trailing to a goal from West Allotment Celtic A’s Ben Jackson, but late strikes from Josh Walsh and Lee Gustard put the Premier Division side through.

Second-half goals from Justin Millican and Jake Walton saw Wallington past High Howdon, while doubles from Tom Phillips and Theo Bondswell helped Red House Farm to a 6-0 success against Wideopen.

The big Carlisle derby was settled by a goal from Northbank’s Stuart Bell to send rivals City crashing out, while Kane White (two), Phil Murray and Ben Dibb-Fuller netted for Stocksfield at Cramlington United.

Damien Stevens netted a treble in Birtley Saint Joseph’s victory over Newbiggin. Chris Morris got the other, with Richie Kennedy and Ross Muter giving the Seasiders hope with a quick-fire double.

Gareth Pugh also hit a hat-trick in Willington Quay Saints’ win at Grainger Park. John Foggett added to the tally and Max Zaborovs bagged a brace for North Shields Athletic as they advanced at the expense of Swalwell. John Wyres, Scott Jasper, Liam Climpson and Chris Chang got the others, with James Bowman striking a double in reply.

First-half goals from Hexham’s Gavin Cox, Liam Heenan and Stuart Brown looked to have put them on easy street against Heddon, but the hosts produced an amazing turnaround to claim their first points of the season, with a Kyle Fradgley hat-trick and a last-minute winner from Andrew Davidson.

Andy May, Liam Hendrum and Kevin Hay scored for Redheugh in their win at the Uni.
