ONLY one game was played in the Blyth and Wansbeck Sunday League premier division at the weekend as Blyth Comrades enjoyed a 6-0 win at Whitley Bay Seahorse Athletic.

The Comrades had Jake Miller in fine form as he scored a hat-trick. Daniel Long added two more with Steven Molloy also on target.

North Shields Gunners’ home game against Newbiggin was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

In the first division Blyth Masons took full advantage of a poor performance from High Street to run out 9-1 winners.

Anthony Goldie scored a consolation goal for the home side as Kevin Long led the scoring for Masons with six while Steven Elsey (2) and Jorden Miller completed the scoring.

Ashington Grand continued their winning form with a 2-0 win at Blyth Seahorse with goals from David Jones and Ryan Lonsdale.

New Delaval and Newsham’s revival continued with a 5-2 win at home to Whitley Lodge Kittiewake. On target for the Newsham was Ian Locke (2), Paddy Allen, Ricki Cook and Jeff Fuller.

In a close game between Monkseaton Arms and Cowpen Percy Arms, the latter came out on top by the odd goal in three. John Pegg and Steven Rylatt scored Percy’s goals.

Division two saw an Ashington derby go down to the last minute. Bubbles were two down at home to Central but pulled back level.

They then went behind again only to bounce back a second time. However, a last minute penalty for Central proved one hurdle too many for Bubbles.

Goals for Bubbles came from Steven Clark, Paul Archer and Daniel Hislop, while Jason Wilson (2), Dean Fairndale and Richard Hall were on target for Central.

Grand Street found themselves a goal down in their home game against West Allotment. They got themselves back in the game through a Daniel Purvis double before finally going down by the odd goal in five.

Once again it was a much-improved perfromance from AE Phoenix in their home game aginst Newsham Black Diamond, but they are still looking for their first win as they lost 4-2.

Alex Richardson and Barry Tait scored for Phoenix but a Craig Frazer hat-trick and Brendem Ruane strike won it for Newsham.

Cramlington saw a derby game as Bay Horse beat Phoenix 2-0 courtesy of goals from Scott Smith and Karl Bopughen.

New Hartley are climbing the table after a 3-1 win at home to Marden Residents.
