THERE is no let up at the top of Division One with the top three all winning their latest fixtures.

Leaders Prudhoe YC Seniors, second placed Haltwhistle Jubilee and third placed Cramlington United all picked up maximum points with comfortable victories at the weekend.

Haltwhistle made the trip to Wallsend Boys Club and were in trouble as they fell behind after just three minutes.

There was no panic from the Jubes, though, and there were on level terms when Jack Barker levelled the scores two minutes later.

The equaliser provided a platform for Halty to build on and two goals in quick succession saw them lead 3-1 after 12 minutes, Aaron Hardy and James Charteries finding the back of the net.

Halty goalkeeper Liam Blair kept the margin at two goals when he saved a penalty, with Dan Kirkup and Barker taking the game away from Wallsend before the break.

Greg Irwin’s goal on 67 minutes made it 6-2 to Haltwhistle after the hosts hit back on the hour, with Wallsend finding a third consolation before the final whistle.

Prudhoe maintained their three point lead at the top as the defeated Seaton Burn 5-1.

The previous week’s derby hero Ben Milner again struck for Prudhoe, and he was joined on the scoresheet by Danny Driver, Rob Hayes, Craig Fairley and Brad Rogers, the latter converting from the penalty spot.

Third placed Cramlington are making sure they’re keeping the heat on as they were 5-2 victors over Bedlington.

Meanwhile, Hexham dropped two places to sixth as they sat idle, Whitley Bay Sporting Club and Red Row Welfare both leapfrogging the Tynedale side. Whitley Bay put three without reply past Gosforth Bohemians, while Red Row were 2-0 victors at second bottom Forest Hall.

Two draws in four games sees Ponteland United eighth in Division Two. Lutfur Karim netted their goal in the weekend’s 1-1 draw with Cramlington Town.

Meanwhile, Jack Brown and George Harris were on target in midweek as United shared four goals with Stobswood Welfare.
