Heddon in the right direction
Published at 13:18, Monday, 09 September 2013
HEDDON are up-and-running as they secured a fantastic 4-3 victory over Tyne Valley rivals Hexham.
Fighting back from three goals down, they picked up their first three points in Northern Alliance Division One in new manager's Billy Finlay's first game in charge.
They moved off bottom spot and level with old foes Ponteland United who endured a torrid time in their 5-1 defeat to Bedlington Terriers Reserves.
Enjoying contrasting fortunes, Chopwell shot to top spot in Division Two following their 3-0 triumph over Alnwick Town Reserves.
Away from league action, both Stocksfield and Wallington progressed in the Archers of Blyth George Dobbins League Cup as Stocksfield put four without reply past Cramlington United and Wallington defeated High Howdon Social Club 2-0.
Prudhoe Town are up to 15th in the Wearside League with thanks to a brilliant 5-1 triumph at home to Horden CW.
Ryton and Crawcrook Albion remain without victory from eight games in Division Two of the Northern League after losing 2-1 to South Shields last time out.
