Amble Tavern lifted the silverware in today’s ES Johnson Challenge Cup Final.

Tavern beat Bedlington Barrington Arms 2-0 to take the trophy.

It was a reversal of fortunes from last weekend’s Lewin Cup Final when the same two teams met and Amble had to settle for the runners-up slot thanks to a last-gasp winner by The Monkey.

In today’s other Morpeth Sunday League games, Stobswood drew 3-3 with Ashington RAOB in Division One, while in Division Two, East Chevington put six past Ashington Conchie in a 1-6 away victory.
