Local fixtures hit by the weather

The wet weather resulted in the postponement of a number of local football fixtures at the weekend, with pitches deemed unplayable due to waterlogged conditions.

Berwick Rangers, Tweedmouth Rangers and North Sunderland were all forced to call off their games.

However, all three games for Berwick sides in the Border Amateur League went ahead.

In Division 1, Tweedmouth Amateurs beat Stow 5-1 at home with goals from Michael Antcliffe (2), Kieran Lee, Yassine Essahli and an own goal.

Tweedmouth remain bottom of the table on six points, but their second successive victory is a marked improvement and gives the Five Arches side a massive boost.

In the C Division, Highfields United were big 9-0 home winners over Lauder with four goals from Jones, two from Jeffrey and one each from Lee, Wood and Smolenskij.

Highfields are now fourth in the table on 11 points.

Berwick Colts, who are second on 16, drew 2-2 away to Gala Fairydean Amateurs.
