Morpeth continued their preparations for the new season with two wins over Northern Alliance opposition.

A week last Wednesday, a brace from Sean Taylor and a goal from new signing Daniel Taggart gave the Highway Men 3-2 victory at North Shields Athletic.

The opponents on Saturday were Walker Central. After a goalless first half, second-half strikes from former Celtic Nation centre-half Matthew Grieve and Stephen Forster resulted in a 2-1 victory for Town.

Morpeth are next in action on Friday evening when they travel to Northern League, Division Two side Heaton Stannington.
