Tricky start continues for Hexham
Last updated at 12:05, Friday, 09 May 2014
AFTER a tough day at Haydon Bridge, things don't get easier for Hexham Leazes.
On the back of the 102 run defeat to the reigning champions, they host a Wylam side in ruthless form after picking up maximum points in all three of their opening games.
Bridge, meanwhile, will be full of confidence on adding to their second success of the campaign as they host a Mitford side still looking to mark their move to the West Tyne League with a triumph.
Haltwhistle have similarly struggled to get going this year and are propping up the rest of the table but go looking for victory in their home game with Matfen Hall.
Both Humshaugh and Stamfordham have shown signs of improvement early on and will hope that counts for something when the teams meet at Stamfordham.
A young Prudhoe side host main rivals Stocksfield II with both going into the game on the back of good victories, while Allendale will hope to build on their first success of the season with a home game with Benwell Hill III.
In Division Two, Wark have enjoyed three consecutive victories and look to make it four when they welcome Haltwhistle II.
South Northumberland 1864 are in a similar position and hope to continue his 100 per cent record when they host an out-of-sorts Wylam II.
After an early season blip, the in-form Humshaugh II are at home to Stocksfield III while Newton entertain Medomsley looking to maintain their winning record.
Hexham Leazes II have won two on the bounce and travel to Stocksfield IV, who have only managed to play one game, while champions Mitford II host bottom club Newcastle III.
