Armstrong joins century club with Whites

DESPITE only being at U11 level, Hexham Whites star Calum Armstrong celebrated reaching his century for the team.
Up against Pin Point Recruitment Junior Football League title challengers Wallsend Boys Club, Armstrong reached the milestone of netting his 100th goal.
But despite his landmark goal and a man of the match performance from Sam Peters, the Whites returned without a point to their name.
Hexham U15 suffered just their second defeat of the season when they lost 2-0 at home to Newcastle City Juniors, a team they beat in the league a few weeks back.
This time, they were eliminated from the third round of the challenge shield with Josh Renton star man for Hexham.
A double hat-trick from the impressive Callum Surridge saw Prudhoe YC U13 Yellows exact revenge on Longhoughton Rangers.
Following a defeat to their opponents earlier in the season, his six goals guided his team to a comfortable 8-1 victory in the North East Youth Development League.
Joining him on the scoresheet was teammates Lee Reay and Ben Callender.
Prudhoe YC U12 Reds did remarkably well to hold the higher ranked Walker Central to 2-2 after extra time in the Northumberland FA Cubs Cup with goals coming from man of the match Matthew Bloomer and Liam Stephenson.
But their hard work was undone when they missed one of their penalties in the shootout to bow out as 5-4 losers.
League leaders Stocksfield were too strong for rivals Prudhoe YC U11 Reds in the NEYDL 9v9 League as they ended as comfortable winners.
Meanwhile, Ponteland and Prudhoe YC U15 Girls played out a rare goalless draw in the Northumberland Girls League, despite Kara Dixon starring for Prudhoe.
One goal was enough for Prudhoe YC U16 Reds when they hosted North Shields in Pin Point Recruitment Junior Football League Two.
But YC U14 Yellows lost 3-2 to Cramlington Town Whites in Pin Point Six and YC U15 Blues were defeated 3-1 at Kingston Park in Pin Point Four.
Wylam Rockettes U12 were denied three points in the Northumberland Girls League when they conceded a late leveller to Walbottle.
The points looked to belong to Wylam when Antonia Cave netted, but they were to be devastated by a late goal despite the monumental defensive efforts of girl of the game Fiona Hamilton.
Wylam Rockettes U11 were unfortunate to end up on the losing side when they faced Heaton Hawks, goals from Abby Brown and girl of the game Emma Rankin not enough as they went down 4-2.
Josie Fenwick starred in midfield for Wylam Rockettes U10 but she could not stop her plucky side from losing 6-0 to AE Phoenix.
After a month without a game, Prudhoe Town U14 kept their unbeaten status intact with a fine 4-1 win against Northburn with man of the match Matty Mitchell running the midfield.
The goals came from Nick Phillipson, Brandon Smith, Liam Bentley and a thunderbolt from new boy Liam Kelly.

The Miners' Hall at West Wylam was officially re-opened after undergoing extensive renovation.
Built as a cinema with a sloping floor 15 years previously, a ladies' cloakroom had been added and the floor levelled to turn it into a dance hall.
The work cost £500, half of which came from the Northumberland Miners' Association.
