Heavy rain hits Northern Alliance fixture list

Saturday’s Northern Alliance fixture list was almost completely washed out by heavy rain with only five games getting the go-ahead.

Louis Meach and Michael Tucker fired in for Gateshead Leam Rangers as they booked a spot in the Bluefin Group Amateur Cup Final with a good win at Chopwell, who netted through Derek Waters.

In the premier division, Darren Walsh struck twice for leaders Walker Central and James Walker added another but hosts Red House Farm came from behind to win it with goals from Lee Brady (2), Rees Farndell and Robbie Nolan.

Andrew Davidson slotted home the only goal of the game late on from the penalty spot as Ponteland United beat Newcastle Chemfica in division one.

Jack Bell, John Dewhirst and Robbie Frame scored for Redheugh in their win over New Fordley, who had Joe Besford and Lee Waugh on the scoresheet.

Their was a glut of goals in the only game in division two, with Dan Carr (2), Jake Miller, Billy Olechnowicz and Paul Huck netting for Blyth Isabella as they beat Whitburn Athletic in a nine-goal thriller. Andrew Smith (2), Daniel Wilson and Grant Pressling replied.
