A return to league action for Wylam
Published at 16:02, Thursday, 20 February 2014
A LONG awaited return to league action is planned for Hexham and District Sunday League frontrunners Wylam.
Without a game in Division One since the first day in December, the table toppers are looking to build on their advantage with a home game with Allendale at the weekend.
Second placed Haltwhistle Conservatives will aim to keep the pressure up as they are just one point behind, and they head to a Hexham Phoenix side struggling to match last season's highs.
The bottom two of The Falcon Prudhoe and Rose and Crown Bellingham will battle it out for a place in the semi-finals of the Division One KO Cup, as will Ryton and Crawcrook Albion and Prudhoe Town.
Division Two champions Prudhoe Social Club make the trip to Phoenix Chopwell in the first round of their divisional KO Cup with a place in the quarters versus Haydon Bridge Anchor awaiting the winners.
Bridge, however, will be in Mick Simmons Trophy action with rivals Dr Syntax Prudhoe, and Bardon Mill, second in Division Two, will host Warden Boatside, third in Division Three.
In the B Division, second division side Acomb Welfare play host to first division outfit Barrasford.
