Stobswood slide to defeat against leaders

Morpeth Sunday League round-up

Division One

AMBLE Tavern made it four wins out of four and they top the division thanks to a 5-1 victory over Stobswood, with Sean Taylor grabbing a hat-trick.

NFA Sunday Cup

Two of the Division One teams were in NFA Sunday Cup action this week with mixed results. Bedlington Barrington Arms faced a tricky away tie against defending champions Blakelaw and were knocked out of the competition, losing 3-1.

The Barrington gave a good account of themselves though and actually led 1-0 at half-time thanks to Ross Dixon, but they just couldn’t see the game out.

Ashington RAOB, however, did progress to the next round as they defeated Hexham Phoenix 7-1 after extra-time.

East Chevington continued their perfect start as they overcame Amble Blue Bell 5-0 with the result not completely reflecting the nature of the game as Amble performed admirably. The game was poised at 1-0 for 80 minutes and East Chevington scored four in the last 10 minutes to put some gloss on the scoreline.

East Chevington now sit top of the table on 12 points with a game in hand on their nearest challengers and look to have a good chance of winning the title.

In a goal-laden affair North End Trap defeated Alnmouth Argyle 9-3 with the scorers as follows: Marc Nixon (two) Kev Bell (two) Josh Baston, Marc Mavin, Sean Anderson, Dylan McClean and Ian Turnbull, all three of the Alnmouth goals were scored by Chris Chisholm.

Finally in Division Two, Morpeth Shambles defeated HMP Northumberland 6-0.
