RECENT frost and the previous day’s heavy rain combined to make pitches unplayable and caused havoc with Saturday mornings programme with only four U10 fixtures going ahead as planned.
In Division One, Allendale Fireballs travelled away to Wark and gained maximum points with Alyosha Hipkin and Matty Koranteng scoring in a 2-0 win.
Midfielder Carl Baxter took the man of the match award for the Dale with Oliver Scott starring in a similar role for Wark.
Throckley Magpies AC won 5-2 at Hexham with Mark Russell capping an eye catching performance in midfield by scoring twice, with Paul Turnbull, Josh Waters and Ethan Wears also on target.
Jake Scott got both of Hexham’s goals and defender Michael Little was named man of the match.
The Second Division game between Wark U9 and Allendale U9 ended in the spoils being shared following a 4-4 draw.
Kareem Turnbull and the impressive Brandon Bland hit doubles for the North Tyne boys with star man Jake Reed also scoring two for the visitors whose Daniel Lennie and Kyran Smith also netted.
Hexham Greens U9 stretched their lead a the top of the division to three points by overpowering Prudhoe YC U9. The visitors’ keeper Daniel Rodrigues pulled off a string of brilliant saves but was unable to withstand the clinical finishing of the likes of Will Burns, Josh Heslop, Matt Kilby, Adam Newton, George Youngman and man of the match Dan Simpson, while Nicholas Phillips scored a consolation goal for Prudhoe.
Mini-soccer now enjoys its traditional Christmas and New Year break and the league management committee wish to extend their very best wished to players, team managers, referees and everyone connected with the league.

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.
