Prudhoe derby for bragging rights
Published at 09:32, Thursday, 05 September 2013
THE highest ranked Sunday League team in Prudhoe will look to defend their crown when the new kids on the block strut their stuff this weekend.
Newly promoted The Falcon Prudhoe aim to push on and knock visitors Prudhoe Town off their perch as the area's top dogs in what should be an entertaining derby game at Eastwoods on Sunday morning.
Meanwhile, high flying Ryton and Crawcrook Albion will face another strong test of their Division One credentials when they make the visit of champions Haltwhistle Conservatives' Burnabeau pitch.
Leaders Stocksfield's aim of maintaining their 100 per cent reocrd takes them to fourth placed Barrasford.
A big game towards the foot of the table sees Rose and Crown Bellingham host rivals Allendale, while Hexham Phoenix welcome Wylam to Tyne Green.
It is top versus bottom in Division Two as on-fire Prudhoe Soical Club entertain winless Swinburne Arms Stamfordham.
After a week off, Bardon Mill will look to keep the pressure on the leaders though and they have a home game with an improved Warden Boatside up next.
Dr Syntax Prudhoe visit Acomb Welfare, and Phoenix Chopwell welcome Hexham Hearts.
