HALTWHISTLE Jubilee’s impressive run in the Northumberland FA Minor Cup ended in North Tyneside on Saturday.

The Jubes lost their semi-final 3-1 at Cullercoats, despite leading at half time courtesy of a goal from James Charteries.

But the hosts scored three times in the second half of a game which was dominated by strong winds throughout.

Manager Cameron Bell said: “Our excellent run in the Minor Cup came to an end in the semi-finals, as we were beaten by a good Cullercoats team.

“They stormed back to deservedly win. In truth, the game wasn’t much of a spectacle, and the wind ruined it for both sides.”

Scott Jacobsen was man of the match for his his tireless display in the midfield for Haltwhistle.

The Jubes travel to Wideopen in the Tyneside Amateur League, on Saturday.

Haltwhistle, who won the Clayton Cup last August with victory over Ponteland, still have a lot to play for this season. They are in league title contention, and have also reached the semi-finals of the Tyneside Amateur Shield.
