Quadruple in Haltwhistle's sights
Published at 11:37, Friday, 25 April 2014
HALTWHISTLE Conservatives' pursuit of the quadruple starts in earnest on Sunday.
For the Hexham and District Sunday League leaders have their first chance of silverware when they line up against Stocksfield in the final of the Division One KO Cup final at Prudhoe Town.
But they will be pushed all the way by their opponents, Stocksfield toughing it out for second spot in the league to show that they are definitely no pushovers.
With Stocksfield in cup action, Wylam have the chance to cement the runners-up as victory at relegated side Rose and Crown Bellingham will push them four points ahead with one game to go, although their rivals will have a game in hand.
The Falcon Prudhoe were unable to beat the drop in their first year in Division One and end their campaign with a home game with Ryton and Crawcrook Albion, losers to Prudhoe Town by two goals to nil last night.
Warden Boatside need a win at bottom club Swinburne Arms Stamfordham to guarantee third spot in Division Two, a point enough to take them level on points with Haydon Bridge Anchor but they have an inferior goal difference.
Meanwhile, both Hexham Hearts and Acomb Welfare bring their campaigns to an end when they meet at the weekend.
With A Division of th Mick Simmons Trophy already settled, first divison Allendale and Division Two side Dr Syntax Prudhoe will play for pride, while Barrasford nor Prudhoe Town can finish top in B Division but they will battle it out for the honour of finishing third.
