WALLINGTON suffered a second successive defeat in Northern Alliance Premier Division.

The Greens lost 3-1 to Whitley Bay on Saturday at their Oakford Park Ground.

A goal from Richard Smith proved to be only a consolation for the side, which is based at Scots Gap. Kris Willis was named man of the match.

Wallington have a derby match to look forward to this weekend, when they travel to Ponteland United in another league encounter.
