Weather plays havoc with fixtures

THE weather again created havoc with the Morpeth Sunday league schedule, with only three games taking place out of a scheduled eight at the weekend.

Division One’s only game involved Pegswood Ex and Village Inn Longframlington.

Pegswood, who remain top and unbeaten in this campaign, ran out the victors, racking up an impressive 16-2 win.

On target for Pegswood were Stu Marshall, six, Ashleigh McAlpine, four, Josh Gilmartin, two, and solitary efforts from Matthew Cummings, Ross Donnelly, Mickey Adamson and Aaron Simms.

The Village Inn scorers were Mick Scarpa and Gavin Bick.

Bomarsund closed the gap on Division Two top team Riverside Lodge with a convincing 7-2 win over East Chevington thanks to a Kris Grey hat-trick, a Liam Brown brace and a goal each from Adrian Grey and Tony Messenger.

Bomarsund now sit three points behind Riverside Lodge with two games in hand and it will undoubtedly be an intriguing affair when these two teams meet for the first time.

In the division’s other game, Felton edged a tight game against North End Trap 6-5 with the Felton goals coming from Tony Brown, three, Peter Maughan, John Angus and Jamie Jackson.

The North End Trap goals were scored by Peter Godfrey, three, Vitali Bedakurau and Marc Nixon.
