Heddon's tough task against Ponteland
Published at 09:43, Friday, 30 August 2013
STRUGGLING Heddon host fierce rivals Ponteland United tomorrow in the hope of picking up their first points of the new campaign.
Still without victory this season, things have picked up most recently but they will find it tough against a Ponteland side who have lost just twice in six games.
Elsewhere in Division One of the Northern Alliance, Hexham look for a return to winning ways at Gosforth Bohemians following two successive defeats.
Gateshead Rutherford, featuring many lads with links to the Tynedale football scene, will play host to a team from the district for the second Saturday running when high flying Wallington make the trip to Lobley Hill.
Chopwell are at West Allotment Celtic A in Division Two, and Ryton and Crawcrook Albion travel to Birtley Town in Division Two of the Northern League.
Prudhoe Town hope for just their second victory in the Wearside League this weekend, a home game with fifth placed Wolviston scheduled.

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.
