A SPIRITED second half performance from Hexham FC saw them come from behind to advance through to the semi-finals of the Northumberland Minor Cup after defeating Prudhoe YC Seniors 2-1. 

Two goals from Owen Murtough, including one in the last minutes of the game, capped off a brilliant second half for the Greens after going 1-0 down in the first half to a header from Prudhoe's Arron Fletcher.

Haltwhistle Jubilee got their revenge on Division Two title rivals by progressing to the final four of the Northumberland FA Minor Cup.

Having lost 4-3 to Newcastle University A when the teams met in the league last weekend, a goal in each half saw Halty send the Students packing in today's quarter final match up.

Scott Jacobsen sent home a penalty before the break after Jack Barker was brought down in the area, with a wonder strike from Thomas Wilkie five minutes before time making sure of the victory.

All Northumberland league matches on Sunday, February 9, have been cancelled due to the forecast.
