Seahouses won the inaugural Glendale U10 Festival final by beating Berwick Bulldogs in a thrilling encounter which had to be settled by penalties.

Seahouses took the lead through a great finish by the dangerous Robbie Sword, but they were pegged back by the Bulldogs (1-1).

Robbie then nailed his second following a flowing move and Harry Armstrong cross.

The Seahouses defence of Sam Hall and Jack Heston were standing firm against constant Berwick pressure, but they were beaten by a good headed finish (2-2).

The battling Seahouses midfield of James Wright and Charlie Elliot continued to carve chances and it was Zach Watson who looked to have snatched victory with a tidy finish, only for Berwick to equalise again and take the match into extra-time (3-3).

This ended in stalemate and in the resulting penalties, Sam Hall and Reece Malone both scored for the Thunder.

Damien Fawcus saved the first Berwick penalty and when their second was missed, the trophy belonged to Seahouses.

Both sides deserve credit for a game that was a great advert for the Glendale League.

Seahouses U8s lifted the U8 Glendale League Autumn Premiership Cup by beating Wooler Celtic in the final.

Seahouses started well and scored through Gilholme after a good team move that started from the defence.

Seahouses were strong at the back with Malone and Creswell keeping the Wooler strikers quiet and Davies playing a vital role between the posts in the first half.

Gilholme got his name on the scoresheet. One of the highlights was his fine solo goal, which showed off his dribbling abilities.

Swordy scored a brace while Malone grabbed a goal before half-time. Patterson and Turner also made an impact.
