Quickfire return for Stocksfield
Last updated at 15:07, Thursday, 31 October 2013
AFTER Saturday's narrow defeat to Red House Farm, Stocksfield have not had long to plot their revenge.
The two teams will meet again on Saturday, just seven days after 10-men Farm inflicted a 2-1 defeat on the visiting Griffins.
Also in Premier Division action in the Northern Alliance is Wallington as they welcome Seaton Delaval Amateurs to Oakford Park.
There is just one Division One fixture organised for the weekend, and victory for Heddon over second placed Cramlington Town will lift the stuttering club up to 10th.
Having been knocked out of the Shipowners Charity Cup at the semi-finals stage last year, Prudhoe Town hope for better fortune this time around and their pursuit of progress continues with a second round tie at home to Cleator Moor Celtic.
Saturday will also see round two of the Northumberland FA Minor Cup played, last year's losing finalists Hexham started their campaign with a home tie with North Northumberland Division Two side Embleton Whinstone Rovers.
Ponteland United play host to Fawdon Park Sports DP, while their reserves are also at home to Alliance outfit Willington Quay Saints.
Heddon St Andrews are another team to welcome an Alliance side as they are at home to Newcastle Chemfica (Independent).
In Division Two of the Northern League, Ryton and Crawcrook Albion have the chance to move off the bottom but require a victory at league leaders Heaton Stannington to stand any chance.
Tynedale Ladies will hope their impressive form continues when they host Combination League ourfit Middlesbrough in the third and final qualifying round of the Women's FA Cup.

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.
