PONTELAND Blacks were on top form when they returned to action in the Gateshead Youth Football League. 

They ran riot against Winlaton, with braces for Rhys Johnson, Wes Scott, Tom Scougall, and Joseph Nicholson; while man of the match Omar Tumia, Jamie Grant, and Ben Kershaw were also on target. 

Joseph Nicholson scored all five goals as Ponteland Munich swept aside Swalwell Juniors without reply. He was deservedly awarded man of the match. 

Allendale Town travelled to Ellington in the Pin Point League. After starting brightly, the visitors couldn’t find a breakthrough, and Ellington scored against the run of play. 

Town were quickly level with a super finish from Dan Priestley, which lead to a very even spell of the game with chances for both teams.

Allendale were unfortunate to pick up three bad injuries in the second half, and Ellington went on to win the match 4-1.

Jay Jay Mackay was man of the match for Allendale with an impressive performance.
