Prudhoe U17s come from behind to take full points

OVERTURNING a one goal deficit, Prudhoe YC U17 Reds fought back to grab three vital league points right at the death.

In a game in which Kieran Russell was star man, Prudhoe came back to defeat Cramlington United 2-1 courtesy of goals from Adam Greenwood and James Baker.

Prudhoe YC U11 Girls could not compete with their Tyne Valley rivals Wylam Rockettes U11 in the Northumberland Girls’ League, ace markswoman Courtney Peel and Fay Scott inflicting the damage.

The victory followed their 2-0 success over Lowick United, Lottie Murphy with both goals and Annie Spragg named girl of the game.

Meanwhile, Erin Woods put in a great display for the newly formed Wylam Rockettes U11 Rascals as they went down 2-0 to Blyth in only their second ever game.

With Abby Brown scoring twice to join girl of the game Chloe Sayer on the scoresheet, Wylam Rockettes U12 recorded a 3–0 win against Newcastle East End.

Both girls were also on target in their comfortable win over Westgate Juniors, Maisie James and Emma Rankin netting too with Molly Moor named girl of the game.

With the help of a top class defensive performance from Louise Greenshields, Wylam Rockettes U14 defeated Forest Hall 2-1 courtesy of strikes from Georgia Birch and Heather Hamilton.

In their previous friendly game, Ellen Packham hit three and Georgia and Heather one each in a 5-1 triumph over the same team.

Leading 2-1 with 10 minutes to go after Josie Fenwick and Stacey Billinghurst found the back of the net, Wylam Rockettes U10 were disappointed to lose 3-2 to a strong Newcastle East End team.

Despite the resolute defending of girl of the game Anna Harding, Wylam Rockettes U13 lost at home to Bedlington Town Rockets following a 4-0 defeat at Cramlington Girls in which Francesca Chilton caught the eye.

Goals from Ryan Gardner and Joe Hughes sent Hexham U15 through in cup competition at the expense of WBBC, while Hexham U17 also progressed by defeating Blackfyne 3-2.

Joe Hughes was again on target to earn his side a point in their 1-1 draw with North Shields.

With strikes from Sam Mannion, Peter Leach, Carl Fairless and Alex Martin, Hexham U16 defeated Ponteland 4-2, with Josh Renton named star player.

They were then unlucky not to come away with at least a point at home to Red House Farm, losing 3-2 despite goals from Brad Lowes and Jack Devlin, and a man of the match performance from Alex Martin.

The game was also noteworthy for the appearance of well-known former referee David Tiffin who dusted off his black uniform to run the rule over his first game in many years.

Two goals from Olly James and a penalty from Will Roberts guided Hexham U13 Greens to a 3-1 success on their travels at Hazelrigg Barca. Mark Hodgson was voted man of the match.

The Greens then dropped their first points in months when they were held to a 4-4 draw with Tynemouth Yellows, Alex Wood, Patrick Lally, Will Roberts and man of the match Olly James getting their goals.

Joff Carr struck twice in Hexham U14 Greens’ 6-1 win at Ponteland Predators, Owen Murtough, David Robson, Callum Hignett and man of the match George Cook with the others.

Another double was recorded by Joff Carr when they met Heaton Hawks in the County Colts Cup - but Hexham exited the competition as they ended up losing 6-2.

Hexham U12 Whites won 3-2 away at North Shields, but Hexham U11 lost 5-3 at New Fordley and Hexham U13 Whites were beaten 5-1 by leaders Monkseaton but recovered to beat Tynemouth Blues 2-1.

Elsewhere, Hexham U17 earned a brilliant point at home to fourth placed Berwick courtesy of a 1-1 draw.
