Wallington and Stocksfield turn rivals
Published at 11:57, Friday, 25 April 2014
FRIENDLY relations will be cast aside tomorrow when Wallington and Stocksfield meet in the Premier Division of the Northern Alliance.
The rivals are battling it out for a top half finish with Stocksfield currently enjoying the upper hand as they sit six points ahead in seventh spot.
Victory tomorrow in their final game would mean they could no longer be caught by their mates, and could even set up a reciord top six finish.
But if hosts Wallington claim maximum points, they will be favourites to finish higher as they will reduce the gap to three points with two games outstanding.
In Division One, Heddon could do with three points at third bottom New Fordley to try to stave off the threat of relegation with bottom club Willington Quay Saints breathing down their necks with two games in hand.
Hexham could jump one place to 10th if they manage to defeat Gosforth Bohemians, while Ponteland United are targeting eighth if they can disrupt league leaders Cramlington Town's promotion chasing momentum.
A double header is in store for Prudhoe Town in the Wearside League as they host Ashbrooke Belford House tomorrow before a quick turnaround sees them welcome Stockton Town on Monday evening.
The relegation fight in Division Two of the Northern League is going right down to the wire and bottom side Ryton and Crawcrook Albion continue fighting for their lives with a trip to Tow Law Town.
On Sunday, Tynedale Ladies host Middlesbrough Lionesses in a game they must win by a comfortable margin to stay in with a chance of lifting the North East Women's Football League crown.
