ANOTHER Saturday in the Northern Football Alliance calendar, another win for Amble United in Division One.
It is becoming an increasingly familiar story this season but today was extra special.
For the vanquished side were none other than Wallsend Town who were sitting pretty on top of the table ahead of this afternoon’s match by virtue of having played two games more and notching 10 wins out of 12.
Unbeaten Amble had managed nine wins out of 10, so their visit to Wallsend was truly a clash of the Titans.
And they came away with a 1-3 victory and three points under their belts.
They leapfrogged their opponents and now sit a point clear still with those two games in hand.
Elsewhere, Wallington entertained Heddon and lost 1-2 in the same division.
Alnwick Town Reserves were ousted from the Bill Gardner Trophy after their Round One 1-2 defeat at home to Forest Hall.
Full league round-up to come on this site and in the Gazette on Thursday.
