However, Wallington picked up the points in their game with Bedlington Terriers Reserves to stay top of Alliance One, while division rivals Heddon beating Newcastle Chemfica (Indpendent) 2-1. Ponteland United lost 2-0 at home to promotion chasing Cramlington Town.
FC Stocksfield dented Hexham Phoenix's Hexham and District Sunday League title hopes by defeating the high flyers 2-1, meaning Haltwhistle Conservatives are now the only unbeaten team in the league as they returned from Barrasford with a 6-3 success.
The top three in Division Three all won as the title race really heats up, leaders Bardon Mill 2-1 victors at Hexham Hearts, Ryton and Crawcrook Albion winners over Prudhoe YC, and Haydon Bridge Anchor beating Wylam Celtic 3-1.

HAVING raised over £1,000 through prize draws, dances, whist drives and donations, Bellingham was able to buy its town hall.
So successful was the fund-raising that when all the debts were cleared more than £100 was left in the fund.
The hall could now be used by the town for all manner of social and public functions.
