HALTWHISTLE Jubilee ended their year with a goalless draw against Ponteland Reserves. 

The away point saw the Jubes move into New Year sitting in fourth place in the Tyneside Amateur League. 

However, they have three games in hand over second placed Ponteland, and league leaders Morpeth, who both have 33 points from 14 games. 

Haltwhistle have only played 12 matches, and currently have 28 points. 

It has been an impressive season for Haltwhistle, who only made the switch to Saturday football last season. 

They returned home to Burn Field last summer after playing at Bardon Mill for more than a year while refurbishment work was carried out to the pitch and clubhouse at the Burn. 

Manager Cameron Bell said: “We’re looking forward to the New Year because we have a lot of football to play, and a lot to aim for. 

“In recent weeks we have had matches postponed for various reasons, so the lads are very keen to be playing matches.

“We’re all enjoying our football at the minute and hopefully we can keep things moving along.”

On December 1, the Jubes enjoyed an 11-1 win over Newcastle Chemfica Amateurs. 

Bell added: “One of the things we’ve enjoyed most is playing back at the Burn again. 

“We now have a fantastic facility there and it really does make a difference. We are grateful for the work that has been done there.”
