Ashington Station Lounge and Amble Tavern were cup final winners on Sunday in the Standard Security Blyth and Wansbeck Sunday League.

In the Eric Anderson Cup, Station Lounge came from behind to beat Cramlington Green with two late goals.

Louis Sneddon put Green in front with ten minutes remaining, but an own goal soon after levelled for Lounge and Richard Stobbart scored the winner 90 seconds from time.

League chairman Colin Douglas thanked Bedlington Terriers and their staff for the use of their facilities. The man of the match award went to Cramlington keeper Ryan Haire, chosen Steve Burn.

The Alan Davison Cup final was also decided in the closing minutes. Josh Hay put Amble Tavern in front with a penalty before Josh Monaghan levelled for Bedlington Social Club.

In the second half, Rob Baker put Tavern back in front before Joe Moscrop levelled from the spot. But just as the game appeared to be heading to extra-time, Hay scored his second to see Amble lift the trophy.

Alan Davison, founder member of the league and a life member who sponsors the final, presented the trophies and man of the match award to Tavern’s Jordan Giles, who was selected by Paul Davison.
