Derby day for Tynedale and Prudhoe
Last updated at 11:37, Thursday, 17 October 2013
IF last year is anything to go by, the Tynedale Ladies and Prudhoe Town Women derby double header is sure to be fully loaded and not for the faint hearted.
Tynedale will be looking for revenge after being knocked out of the Northumberland FA Women’s Cup at the semi finals stage by their fierce rivals.
With an excellent performance, Town upset the odds with Ashleigh Rae scoring twice after 83 minutes to defeat their then higher ranked counterparts.
The two teams meet for the first time in the North East Regional Women’s League following Prudhoe’s promotion at Kimberly Park tomorrow, swiftly followed by the reverse fixture the following week.
Scintillating form sees Tyne approach the fixture with only one loss in five, while Prudhoe will be buoyed by their 3-1 success at the weekend.
The men's local football teams will be in league action, both Stocksfield and Wallington having home games scheduled in the Premier Division of the Northern Alliance as they welcome Whitley Bay A and Shankhouse respectively.
In Division One, Heddon's climb up the table may be put on hold as they travel to third placed Newcastle Chemfica (Independent).
Elsewhere, Hexham are at Birtley St Josephs and Ponteland United visit table topping North Shields Athletic.
Chopwell look to keep hold of their lead in Division Two with a home game against Gateshead Leam Rangers, a team they lost to in the cup last time out.
Prudhoe Town need to bounce back after last week's 5-1 loss to bottom club Coxhoe Athletic when they travel to Jarrow on Saturday, while Ryton and Crawcrook Albion host fourth placed West Allotment Celtic in Division Two of the Northern League.

This week in... 1949Friday, December 9, 1949...
A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
