Despite being a few points behind several of their league rivals, Hexham are in a good position for when the Northern Alliance Division One season restarts (hopefully) later this year.

The Wentworth Leisure Centre based squad – who currently sit fifth in the table - have already faced several of the teams around them after their first 10 games and could have been further up in the standings had the results gone their way.

This was the case none more so than in their opening match of the campaign against Haltwhistle Jubilee, where the hosts claimed a 4-3 win with a dramatic last-minute winner after Hexham had pulled back a 3-0 deficit in the second half.

Despite that early setback, they earned their first win of the season just three days later against Whitley Bay Sporting Club with a 3-2 win on home soil, before another close game in the third round of fixtures saw them claim a point in a 2-2 draw with Seaton Burn.

The team then suffered another early blip – this time in the form of Cramlington United - with the north Northumberland team sneaking a tight 2-1 win.

However, Hexham then did recover over the next few games, with the team going on a five-game unbeaten run in all competitions.

This began with their second draw of the season against Wallsend Boys Club away from home in another high scoring encounter, before they hit six against FC United of Newcastle in a dominant 2-6 win.

Another big victory followed - this time at home and with a score line of 4-1 – against Gosforth Bohemians before they switched their attention to the Northumberland FA Minor Cup and hit 12 goals against Newbiggin Hall FC in a rampant display.

The goals then kept coming as they returned to league action – earning their first league clean sheet of the season in the process - with a 4-0 away win over Whitburn & Cleadon FC, before their run was ended by yet another close match that didn’t quite go their way.

This time, it was at hands of another of their rivals - Prudhoe Youth Club FC Seniors – with Hexham losing out by a single goal in a 1-0 defeat, although the team again showed their spirit with a big win against Felling Magpies before the season was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic in mid-December.
