All good things come to an end – and so it proved this afternoon with Shilbottle CW’s early goal-scoring run.
The side, back in Division Two this season, had scored 16 and conceded none in their first two games, but it came to an abrupt end today. The Colliers went down 3-0 at home to Newcastle Benfield Reserves.
Elsewhere in that league, Alnwick Town Reserves picked up a point on their travels at Lindisfarne Custom Planet.
Meanwhile, in Division One, Wooler’s clash at Heddon was abandoned after 20 minutes due to a serious injury.
