United out of the bottom two

PONTELAND United moved out of the bottom two in the Northern Alliance premier division as Billy Holden netted a double against Blyth Town, with Matty Robinson grabbing the other for the black and whites.

David Atkinson had levelled for Town just before the interval.

Stocksfield also won as Chris Fairless’s opener against Killingworth was followed up by a second from Steve Forster.

Hebburn Reyrolle’s 4-0 success over Shankhouse put them top of the table.

Channon North and Ray Oshin netted in quick succession in the first half and a late double from Carl Thorpe completed the victory while second-placed Harraby CC got out of jail when David Fisher headed the only goal of the game at basement side Murton in the 86th minute.

Seaton Delaval’s Danny McGuire gave them the lead against Ashington Colliers.

Selsos Anjos leapt to power a header into the top corner for number two and Paul Katz added the third.

The Colliers grabbed a consolation in the final minute when keeper Phil Hogg spilled a free-kick into his own goal.
