Stocksfield look to get over setback
Published at 10:47, Friday, 14 February 2014
FOLLOWING Saturday's setback at Seaton Delaval Amateurs, Stocksfield expect a first win of 2014 tomorrow.
They are looking to bounce back from the 2-0 reversal with victory over relegation threatened Hebburn Reyrolle, the strugglers propping up the rest of the Northern Alliance Premier Division with just seven points to their name.
At the top of the charts, Wallington can close the gap on leaders Walker Central if they manage to overcome the challenge of rivals Whitley Bay A. It will be the third meeting between the teams in the past two months, Wallington winning 2-1 in the league before losing on penalties in the Northumberland FA Senior Benevolent Bowl following a goalless draw.
In Division One, fierce rivals Ponteland United and Heddon go head-to-head as both go in the search for crucial points which will help them in their goal of beating the drop.
It is hoped that it will be third time lucky for both Prudhoe Town and Hexham as they try to get their respective county cup ties played once and for all.
A place in the semis of the Bowl awaits Prudhoe if they can defeat Premier Division side Shankhouse, while Hexham are gunning for a final four spot in the Minor Cup with Division Two's AFC Newbiggin the visitors to Tynedale.
On Sunday, in-form Tynedale Ladies are hoping for a county cup semi-finals spot of their own as they welcome Ashington Woodhorn Lane Ladies to Kingsley Park.
Over in the North East Women's Football League, Prudhoe Town Women entertain Kader.
