Hexham lost 3-0 to Newcastle Chemfica (Independent) and Heddon were thumped 5-0 by Wooler in Division One, while Chopwell were beaten 7-3 by AFC Newbiggin.
The only saving grace in the Alliance came from Ponteland United as they forced a point in their 3-3 draw with New Fordley.

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.
