Full steam ahead for leaders Wylam

WYLAM forged ahead with their title charge in the Hexham and District Sunday League at the weekend.

They defeated third placed Stocksfield 5-2 to go four points clear of their opponents and second placed Haltwhistle Conservatives, who enjoy a game in hand.

At the foot of the table. Rose and Crown Bellingham recorded a first victory of the season at the expense of fellow strugglers The Falcon Prudhoe as they beat the second bottom side 2-1.

One goal was enough to send Prudhoe Town into the final of the Tommy Jackson Presidents Cup, the 1-0 victory over Hexham Phoenix booking a date with Haltwhistle in the final.

Haltwhistle, meanwhile, are challenging on all fronts and made the semi-finals of the John Pickworth League Cup by defeating Division Two side Dr Syntax Prudhoe 3-0.

Prudhoe Social Club were not made to work for their place in the final four of the Division Two KO Cup as quarter-finals opponents Haydon Bridge Anchor were unable to field a team.

In the Mick Simmons Trophy, Ryton and Crawcrook Albion defeated Warden Boatside 2-0 while Bardon Mill were successful by the same scoreline over Phoneix Chopwell.

Division Two's Hexham Hearts drew 2-2 with Division One outfit Barrasford, while Acomb Welfare and Swinburne Arms Stamfordham shared six goals.
