In the Morpeth Sunday League Reveley Cup final, Morpeth Shambles triumphed over HMP Northumberland 2-1 after extra time.

HMP took the lead midway through the first half through a Jason Singh penalty after a Shambles player handled the ball in the box.

Morpeth then levelled the tie in the second half when defender Paul Cochran put the ball into his own net.

In the first period of extra time Shambles took the lead through Stuart Marshall and they managed to hold on to lift the Bill Reveley Cup.

In the second leg of the Lewin Cup semi-final, Bedlington Barrington Arms progressed to the final despite losing on the day 4-2 to Ashington RAOB but winning the tie overall 7-6 on aggregate.

Bedlington were leading 5-2 from the first leg but their advantage was wiped out as Ashington raced into a three-goal lead thanks to a goal by Mark Race and a deadly double by the excellent Shaun Gibson.

In extra time Barrington got themselves ahead on aggregate, scoring twice through Dylan Williamson and David Scott. Substitute Kristian Priest grabbed a goal late on for Ashington to ensure a nervy finish but Barrington held out and will now take their place in the final against Amble Tavern.

In the only division one, Amble Tavern defeated Stobswood 4-1 thanks to a brace from Liam Brooks and solitary strikes from Lee Harker and Josh Hay. The Stobswood goal was scored by Robert Baker.

Division Two also saw just the one game played as The Elephant recorded a 3-0 win against Alnmouth Argyle with goals from John Sanderson, Brian Brodie and Dan Humble.
