ASHINGTON Colliers earned a 2-2 draw at Percy Main on Saturday in the Northern Alliance premier division.

David Brown gave the Colliers an early lead when he scored from a free kick after only four minutes.

The visitors enjoyed the lions share of the early possession and looked to double their lead as Gregg Martin nodded Patrice Butters’s cross just past the post while Carl Sayers and Brown both had efforts which were not too far away from the target.

Main levelled just before the break but Ashington responded and regained the lead on 63 minutes in a move down the left as neat interchange play by Simon Cunnningham and Butters saw the former fire low into the net from the edge of the area.

But ten minutes later the home side once again levelled the scores, this time from the penalty spot.

Elsewhere, Cramlington Town beat visitors Wark 2-1 while Shankhouse, Blyth Town and Seaton Delaval Amateurs all lost on their travels. Shankhouse went down 3-1 at Heaton Stannington, Blyth 5-2 to Stocksfield and Delaval 3-1 at Walker Central.

In division two Cramlington United lost out at home to Wideopen by the odd goal in five.
