Minis get under way
Published at 09:12, Monday, 10 September 2012
TYNEDALE Mini-Soccer League kicks off tomorrow morning and, once again, is most generously supported by sponsor Alex Waters, of TVI Commercial, Hexham.
Ryton and Crawcrook Albion are interesting newcomers to Division One, while Prudhoe YC Blues hope to carry on their success of last season. Disappointingly, though, the non-competitive U8 league has been reduced to eight teams.
Haydon Bridge will once again be the venue for the Ivory Gray MBE Trophy on Thursday evening, kick off 6.30pm.
This will be contested by last season’s Division Two champions Throckley Magpies Inter U10 and President’s Trophy winners Corbridge United U10.

This week in... 1949Friday, December 9, 1949...
A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
