New Hartley Juniors brought down the curtain on their league campaign with a 2-0 victory away to Bedlington.

Having already won the title, Hartley did not ease off against their rivals in this hard fought ‘derby’ match.

Hartley went into the break one up thanks to a Darren Hamilton goal, and Dean Briggs doubled the lead midway through the second half.

With the league title in the bag, Hartley can look forward to meeting up with Terriers again in the NFA Junior Cup final at Blue Flames on Monday, May 20, while they also have the DFA County Cup final against Ryhope at Nissan on Wednesday, May 15.
