In Division Two, Prudhoe Social Club made it nine wins from nine - but they did not have it all their own way as they scraped past Hexham Hearts 4-3.
Ryton and Crawcrook Albion are doing a good job representing the league in the Durham FA Sunday Cup, making the next round courtesy of a 4-1 success at home to Darlington RFC.

In local cup competition, Haltwhistle Conservatives made their way into the next round of the Tommy Jackson President's Cup as they defeated Division Two's Warden Boatside 4-0.

HAVING raised over £1,000 through prize draws, dances, whist drives and donations, Bellingham was able to buy its town hall.
So successful was the fund-raising that when all the debts were cleared more than £100 was left in the fund.
The hall could now be used by the town for all manner of social and public functions.
