Hexham secured their progression to the quarter finals of the Minor Cup after a big win over Bedlington Seniors last weekend.

The away side defeated the hosts 1-4 on Saturday afternoon, meaning they are now the only remaining team in the Tyne Valley still in the competition.

After going 1-0 down early on, Hexham fought back in fine style, with goals coming from Jake Thompson (his first for the club), Kieran Robley (who scored two) and Peter McRoberts late on that ended up securing the win.

The draw for the next round sees Hexham head to Newcastle East End for their quarter final clash.

Haltwhistle Jubilee meanwhile couldn’t progress in the competition after going down 2-3 to Spital Rovers at The Burn in something of a surprise result.

The Jubes had been at one point 0-3 down after a fine performance from the away side, with Rovers holding on to take the win despite the home side’s best efforts late on to get back into the match.

With Minor Cup action taking centre stage last weekend, Hexham remain in an excellent position in the Combination Cup.

At time of writing, the side are top of their group and go into Wednesday’s game against Cramlington knowing their fate is in their own hands.

With Prudhoe Youth Club Seniors already comfortably through as group four winners, they face Whitley Bay Sporting Club on Wednesday evening with the pressure off, while Haltwhistle Jubilee end their Northern Alliance season against Whitburn and Cleadon knowing they can’t progress.

In the Challenge Cup, Ponteland have ended the competition in third place in group four after a last-minute penalty saw them win their last game of the tournament 3-2 against Percy Main Amateurs.

Wallington, in group two, had a mixed end to their campaign. After going down 0-3 against Newcastle Blue Star FC on Wednesday, they finished their season with a 2-2 draw with Winlaton Vulcans.

Finally in the Amateur Cup, Ponteland United Reserves ended the tournament in second place in their group, although did only claim one point from their last three games.
