This year’s Jam Jar Army beneficiary, The Stephen Carey Fund, recently returned to its roots for the second Stephen Carey Memorial Cup final.

The clash, on Friday, August 29, featured Bamburgh Castle and Amble St Cuthbert at Stobswood Welfare.

A strong crowd saw the Amble side take a three-goal lead early in the game before Bamburgh rallied and replied with two goals of their own.

But Amble struck again to make it 4-2 and while Bamburgh looked to have maintained the momentum, St Cuthbert finished off the scoring for the evening with a further two goals for a 6-2 scoreline at the final whistle.

Both sides played the curtain-raiser to the 2014/15 North Northumberland Football League season in the spirit intended and the crowd certainly showed their support not only for their respective teams, but also for the opposition and the causes behind the fixture.

The night raised £337.80, which will be split equally between The Stephen Carey Fund and the North Northumberland Football League Benevolent Fund, the latter set up to look after injured players from the league.
