Morpeth Sunday League round-up

Division One

The only Division One game that took place this week was the Bedlington derby and it was Barrington Arms who triumphed as they edged out The Wharton Arms 3-2.

The Barrington took the lead midway through the first half through a Dylan Williamson strike, before The Wharton grabbed a scrappy equaliser in the second half with a close-range finish from Curtis Taylor.

The lead was regained by Barrington shortly after as a great free-kick into the box from Chris Moffitt was volleyed home by Josh Laverick.

The Wharton looked to have earned themselves a point when Scott Hume scored from the edge of the box with only minutes remaining, but there was still one more twist in this game.

Barrington substitute Shaun Cowell made a great surging run into the Wharton half before slipping in David Scott – his initial shot was parried by goalkeeper Liam Douglas, but the ball fell to Williamson, who made no mistake with a cool finish to seal another derby win.

Division Two

In Division Two, North End Trap sit top of the table after defeating HMP Northumberland 3-2.

On target for The Trap were Marc Mavin (two) and Josh Baston, while the HMP goals were scored by Ryan McCue and Dale Huggins.

North End are four points clear, but the teams around them all have games in hand.

Morpeth Shambles picked up a good win against second-in-the-table East Chevington thanks to goals from Stuart Melville and Jack Palmer. The East Chevington reply was scored by Adam Shanks.
