Young guns shoot down the Bridge

PRUDHOE YC Blues U9s continue to make light of their year younger situation at Division One level with the 4-1 defeat of Haydon Bridge on Saturday morning to move within two points of front-runners Stocksfield.

This was a significant early season double for the Prudhoe youngsters having beaten the Haydonians by the same scoreline on the opening day in the first round of the West Division Cup.

Connor Gillon hit a brace with Lewis Cant and man of the match Cameron Richarson also netting, while Joey Robson scored an earlier equaliser for the visitors whose star man was recent signing Tom Anderson from the now defunct Allendale Curlews.

Prudhoe remain unbeaten and this was a real confidence booster for the joint second placed youth club outfit.

Although there is a long way to go, tomorrow’s derby encounter with 100 per cent Stocksfield could be crucial.

Third placed Hexham Whites hit six without reply at home to Wylam Rockets Dynamo after racing into a quickfire three goal lead.

Finlay Batey fired them into a first minute lead, finding the net from long range for his first goal of the season.

The scorer then provided the assist for Logan Fawcett to hit the target from just outside the box and Fawcett added a third to give Hexham a commanding three goal lead after only six minutes.

There was a lull in the scoring until 10 minutes from time with a further three goal surge.

Calum Armstrong finished off a fine solo run by firing home a lob and then converted a penalty after being brought down in the box.

Fawcett completed his hat-trick with the last kick of the game after latching on to a through ball from William Scott.

Calum Armstrong excelled for the winners with the good tackling of left back Charlie Waller gaining him the Dynamo man of the match award.

Keeper Josh Squires continues to impress for Prudhoe YC U10s but they found Corbridge United too hot to handle in going down 8-0 away.

Midfielder turned striker Jack Thompson followed up his four of last week by notching a hat-trick with Finn Garrett-Jowsey and George Twizell hitting doubles and Charles Downs one as Corbridge consolidated fourth spot.

With leaders Stocksfield U9s off duty, their closest rivals Throckley Magpies Inter U9s displayed their strength in the Second Division with a convincing win over Wylam Rockets U9s.

The finishing of Daniel Duguid, Ethan Nisbett, Robson Plasted, Callum Whitehead and star performer Robbie Rowntree was too much for beleaguered Wylam whose top man on the day was Jamie Grisedale.

Haltwhistle United’s mini revival came to an end as Haydon Bridge U9s won their derby match 7-1.

Their counters came from George Priest (4), Hal Hodkinson, star man Kai Rafferty and an own goal while Adam Shipley netted the consolation strike for Halty who were best served by Ben Doughty.

The prolific Liam Oliver hit another treble as Wark overcame Throckley Magpies AC U9s with Jack Gray scoring a brace and Shay Stokoe one in their 6-3 win.

Kyle Henderson, Jordan Taylor and Josh Watson replied for AC whose Jack Foggin impressed in defence.

The bottom of the Division clash between pointless duo Hexham U9s and neighbours Corbridge United Lions U9s resulted in a 4-2 victory for the former.

Jack Chicken (2), Marcus Armstrong and Henry Stephenson were on target for Hexham with Charlie Gorham their star man while Jake Scott capped a man of the match display for the Lions by scoring both their goals.

n The previously postponed TVI Commercial Tynedale Mini-soccer League meeting will now be held on Wednesday at Wentworth Leisure Centre, Hexham, at 7.30pm when all clubs should be represented.
