After two weeks, three teams are sitting on six points in the top flight of the Morpeth Sunday League.
First up, Ashington RAOB have made a seamless transition from the second division as they defeated Village Inn Longframlington by 7-0.
Stobswood recorded their second victory, overcoming Morpeth Chantry 2-0 thanks to efforts from Steven Gibbard and Robert Baker. Completing the trio of teams are Pegswood Ex who logged an 8-1 win over Stakeford Half Moon.
Finally in Division One, Bedlington Barrington Arms ran riot over Amble Dock Hotel 9-1 as they bounced back from last week’s heavy opening-day defeat by Amble Tavern.
In Division Two, a pair of teams sit on the perfect six-point mark. First up, Bomersund who recorded a 9-2 win against Felton as Ross Muter and Kris Grey each grabbed a hat-trick, the other goal-scorers being Jody Messenger (two) and John Bone.
East Chevington maintained their perfect start as they emphatically defeated Amble Blue Bell 4-1, with two goals each from Jordan Giles and Darren Smith, with John Spears notching Blue Bell’s only goal.
In an end-to-end thrilling encounter, Blackthorn Rovers edged out North End Trap 4-3, the Blackthorn goals coming from a David Heppell penalty, Daniel Gray and a brace from Vitalik Bedakurau. North End Trap’s goalscorers were Stuart Oman with two and one from John Charlton. The Trap also missed a penalty and hit the bar so may count themselves unlucky.
Riverside Lodge provided the perfect response to last week’s narrow loss to Felton by defeating the Shakespeare Tavern 3-0.
Finally in Division Two, HMP Northumberland piled more misery on River Coquet as they ran out 8-0 victors. In among the goals were John Hughes (two) Steven Wright (two) and a goal each from Wayne Hogan, John Smylie, Dean Brown and Scott Rogan.
