Round one between HDSL rivals
Published at 11:02, Friday, 13 September 2013
TWO heavyweights of the Hexham and District Sunday League will trade blows when they meet for the first time this season.
Reigning champions Haltwhistle Conservatives welcome title contenders Stocksfield, who boast an 100 per cent record after five games, in what is sure to be a closely fight game on Sunday.
After two successive defeats, Ryton and Crawcrook Albion look to bounce bck when they welcome Wylam, while Prudhoe Town will be buoyed by their derby win over The Falcon Prudhoe when they host an out-of-sorts Hexham Phoenix.
The bottom two of Rose and Crown Bellingham and The Falcon will go head-to-head, with Barrasford hosting Allendale.
It does not get any easier for Division Two's basement boys Swinburne Arms Stamfordham as they host second placed Bardon Mill just seven days after playing leaders Prudhoe Social Club.
The frontrunners' championship credentials will again be put on the line this weekend though when they make the trip to Haydon Bridge Anchor.
Dr Syntax Prudhoe are at Hexham Hearts, while Acomb Welfare play host to Phoenix Chopwell.

THREE watercolour paintings donated by Queen Mary were auctioned off to raise money for a new Darby and Joan club in Hexham.
A site had already been bought, but a further £6,000 was needed to run the club for the elderly.
The auction, opened by Viscountess Allendale, saw the paintings raise over £8 for the fund.
