The premier division saw Ashington RAOB record another win, defeating a spirited Blyth Comrades side 2-0 thanks to two goals from Daniel Branley.

Newbiggin and Whitley Bay Cibos were involved in a nine-goal thriller. In the end, Newbiggin edged it 5-4 courtesy of goals from Tony Messenger (2), Ashley Smith, Darren Burn and Colin McLellend.
