North Northumberland results from the weekend were:


Amble St Cuthbert 5

Shilbottle 1

Shilbottle were well beaten in this local derby following a poor performance at the Running Track Ground, Amble.

The Colliers opened brightly enough and appeared to have taken an early lead through Judd Donohoe, only for his effort to be disallowed for offside.

It was Amble who opened the scoring after 25 minutes with a well struck free-kick from Reece Ramsay. Shilbottle should have drawn level shortly after when Danny Donohoe broke clear only to shoot wide of the target.

Amble led by the only goal at the interval and there was nothing in the game until they increased their lead on 70 minutes when Mark Ellis scored following a left wing corner.

Within five minutes the Colliers were back in the game when a fine strike from Melvin Cook reduced the deficit. However, Amble’s two goal advantage was quickly restored when Reece Ramsay got his second. A further two goals in the last five minutes from Ramsay, who was completing his hattrick, and Ellis, from the penalty spot, saw Amble through.

Tweedmouth Harrow 2

North Sunderland 1

After an evenly contested first half the scores were level with Martin Tait on target for Harrow and Tom Farr the North Sunderland scorer .

The second half was just as keenly contested but a second goal from Tait secured the win for Harrow and saw them move above the visitors to the top of the table .

Rothbury 2

Lowick United 3

This was a better performance from Rothbury but they were still pointless at the end of the game. Aaron Hope had given Lowick the half time lead. In the second half he netted his second with Niall Jones adding a third for the visitors.

Rothbury scorers were John Angus and Kyle Smith .


Ashington West End 0

Embleton 8

Embleton turned on a first half performance which saw them net seven times before the interval.

West End rallied after the break and contained the visitors to only one more goal before the final whistle.

Phil Grey led the way with four goals, Neil McFall netted two with Ryan Taylor also on the scoresheet .

Craster Rovers 2

Springhill 3

In what was a good competitive game Martin Bell gave Springhill a first half lead with Glen Robson equalising for Craster. Bell then scored again to see Springhill ahead at half time .

In the second half Richard Stanwix equalised for Craster but a Joe Calder goal after 80 minutes saw Springhill start their season with a win.

Ashington Miners 7

Wooler 2

It was 1-1 at half-time, but Ashington hit Wooler for six after the break..

Bradley Higgins (3), Greg Angus, Nick Storey, Evan Tomms and Scott Neal made up the home total with Connor Cowans and Jack Strangeways on target for the Glendale side.
