Last updated at 11:07, Thursday, 26 September 2013
PRUDHOE Social Club will face a test to see if they would be ready to take a step up into Division One.
Flying at the top of Division Two with seven wins from seven, they travel to last season's runners-up Hexham Phoenix in the Standing Stone DOS Ltd Tommy Jackson President's Cup.
The Big Club have conceded just once in the process but hit the back of the net a whopping 47 times, and will be looking forward to the challenge posed by a Phoenix side currently struggling for league form.
There will be action in the John Pickworth League Cup on Sunday too, with Division One leaders welcoming Division Two side Hexham Hearts while Swinburne Arms Stamfordham face higher ranked opposition in the form of Ryton and Crawcrook Albion.
On the back of a good run, Barrasford have the opportunity to go third in the table with a trip to Prudhoe Town next up.
But they may have to settle for fourth spot at the end of the weekend if Wylam match, or better, their result as they host bottom club Rose and Crown Bellingham, while The Flacon Prudhoe welcome Allendale to Eastwoods in the other game scheduled.
Bardon Mill have the chance to close the gap on leaders Prudhoe Social in Division Two when they play host to Phoenix Chopwell on Sunday.
Third placed Warden Boatside are at fourth placed Dr Syntax Prudhoe, while Haydon Bridge Anchor welcome Acomb Welfare.

THREE watercolour paintings donated by Queen Mary were auctioned off to raise money for a new Darby and Joan club in Hexham.
A site had already been bought, but a further £6,000 was needed to run the club for the elderly.
The auction, opened by Viscountess Allendale, saw the paintings raise over £8 for the fund.
