THE bitter rivalry between Prudhoe Town and Prudhoe Youth Club has been a long-standing one.
And the former claimed one over the old enemy on Sunday morning as a Martin Nugent hat-trick and one from Josh Liddle helped them to a 4-0 success over The Falcon Prudhoe.
The Griffins of Stocksfield continue to fly high as they made it five out of five with a hat-trick from Luke Robson and goals from Tommy Wanless and Rob Grainey earning them a 5-3 victory at Barrasford, who had brothers Gary and Marc Nixon, and Matt Wilson, on target.
Two goals from Haltwhistle Conservatives’ Dan Kirkup and one from Greg Irwin put Ryton and Crawcrook Albion to the sword, while Wylam defeated Hexham Phoenix 4-0 with thanks to goals from Andrew Finnie (2), Michael Gilroy and Dom Walsh.
Meanwhile, Allendale enjoyed bragging rights over rivals Rose and Crown Bellingham as they came away with a 5-1 success.
Prudhoe Social Club forged ahead in Division Two, thumping bottom club Swinburne Arms Stamfordham 11-0.
Tom Finnerty and Stefan Rainbow both hit three, Liam Watson helped himself to two goals, and Ste Forster, Jamie Sharkey and Tom Robinson all got their names on the scoresheet too.
Second placed Bardon Mill were held to a 1-1 draw at home to an ever improving Warden Boatside, David Hall registering to earn the visitors a point.
A strike from Chris Armstrong earned Dr Syntax Prudhoe all three points at Acomb Welfare, while Hexham Hearts edged out Phoenix Chopwell 3-2.

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.
