Amble and Shilbottle took maximum points with wins in the North Northumberland League at the weekend.

DIVISION ONE

AMBLE ST CUTHBERT 5

BELFORD 2

Some fine saves from Belford keeper Morgan Lindsay kept Amble at bay during the first half and their lead at half time was an own goal from Tom Grethe.

After half time Belford hit back and went ahead with goals from Paul Muers and Mathew Stephenson. Amble equalised through a Gary Taylor goal and went on to take the points with further strikes from Liam Ramsay, a Reece Ramsay penalty and a Dan Moyle goal .

LOWICK UNITED 2

TWEEDMOUTH HARROW 2

During the first half Harrow were the better team and led at the break with two goals from Craig Anderson. Lowick improved after the break and hit back to take a share of the points with goals from Rhys Bloomfield and Andy Metcalf .

SHILBOTTLE CW 1

ROTHBURY 0

Shilbottle finally came out on top in this close encounter at a wind swept Welfare Ground. In a game of little quality, a Rothbury side down to the bare bones just came up short.

The first half saw little action of note, with an effort from Stephen Shendon just clearing the cross bar for the Colliers and a fine save from Stu Shanks in the home goal turning an effort around a post.

The interval arrived without a goal but the Colliers began to assert more pressure following the restart with the elements in their favour.

The deciding goal arrived after 65 minutes when a tremendous 30 yard strike from Shendon found the top corner of the net. The game became scrappy as time wore on and Rothbury had a player sent off late on as the Colliers comfortably held on to take the points.

WOOLER 10

ASHINGTON WEST END 1

The visitors fell behind to a first minute goal and conceded another four before half time with a Joe Messenger effort their only reply. Wooler kept up the pressure after halftime and added five more before the final whistle.

Tristan Jeffrey (4) , Sam Cowans (2) and single strikes from Connor Cowans, Ross Tait, Brandon Crombie plus an OG made up the Wooler total .

EMBLETON WR 3

CRASTER ROVERS 3

In a hard fought competitive local derby James Thorp netted for Embleton but Craster had the better of the half and led at half time thanks to goals from Rhys Hogg (2) and Richard Stanwix.

Embleton came back after half time to take a share of the points with goals from Phil Grey and Chris Chisholm.
