Pole position in Stocksfield's sights
Published at 10:10, Friday, 13 December 2013
STOCKSFIELD have the opportunity to reclaim top spot in the Hexham and District Sunday League.
For their home game with Ryton and Crawcrook Albion is the only one latest in Division One, victory for the hosts enough to send them two points clear of leaders Wylam.
Any kind of result away to neighbours Dr Syntax Prudhoe would wrap up the Division Two title in their debut year for the already promoted Prudhoe Social Club.
Syntax's fight for third spot will continue, as it will for Haydon Bridge Anchor who host Phoenix Chopwell and Warden Boatside, who currently occupy the place, when they travel to second bottom Acomb Welfare.
In the division's other fixture, Swinburne Arms Stamfordham entertain Hexham Hearts.
Having gained promotion to Division One last week, Bardon Mill will be given an early test of the step-up when they head to nearby Allendale in the Standing Stone DOS Tommy Jackson Presidents Cup.
The stand-out tie see The Falcon Prudhoe welcome Haltwhistle Conservatives, but the all-Division One games between Prudhoe Town and Rose and Crown, and Hexham Phoenix and Barrasford look tasty too.
