FOLLOWING a thumping 7-1 defeat in the league to Carlisle City, Stocksfield turn their attentions to cup action this weekend.
Looking to bounce back from the horror show in the Northern Alliance Premier Division, the Griffins are hoping to book their place in the next round of the Challenge Cup when they host Shankhouse on Saturday.
Meanwhile, rivals Wallington could move up to fifth spot if results go their way and they manage to record a victory at home to 12th placed Ashington Colliers.
In Division One, Heddon look to put their 11-0 thrashing at the hands of Gosforth Bohemians behind them when they travel to Cramlington Town while Hexham welcome Newcastle University in what will be just the second league game for the visitors.
After moving up to 12th in the Wearside League after a midweek victory, Prudhoe Town look to continue their climb up the table when they visit Ashbrooke Belford House.
Ponteland United are once again cup action this weekend, and they will again be on their travels with an away tie with Division Two's Alnwick Town Reserves in the George Dobbins League Cup.
Cumbria is the destination for Ryton and Crawcrook Albion as they take on Holker Old Boys in the FA Vase, while Chopwell are at home to High Howdon Social Club in the Amateur Cup.

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.
