Haydon Bridge Social Club put on a superb show as they put eight goals past Haltwhistle Railway in Division One of the Hexham and District Sunday League last weekend.

The away side, who had come into the game off the back of a 1-1 draw with Riding Mill the weekend previously, saw Joel Pearson hit a hat-trick and Kieran Robley also help himself to a brace in the big win, with Pearson also being given Man of the Match.

Elsewhere in Division One and with league frontrunners Bardon Mill Bowes not in action, the spotlight was on Hexham Phoenix as they went on to beat Heddon FC 4-0 in another big win.

Two goals from Tony Lancaster as well as efforts from Matty Kilby and MOTM Tom Hacking ensured the home side walked away with the win.

A brace and a MOTM performance from Dale Dodds inspired Riding Mill to a 2-0 win over Wark FC while Prudhoe Halfway House also continued their fine form with a 0-2 away win against Crawcrook Fox & Hounds with Brad Rodger and Matty Robinson getting on the scoresheet.

In Division Two, Halfway House United scored five for the second weekend in a row with a big win over Heddon Utd Reserves. Goals from Sam Mannion, Scott Turley, Tom Thirlwell and two from Nathan Moore secured the victory.

A high scoring affair took place at FC Ryton, with the hosts coming from 1-3 down to clinch a 4-3 win over Up The Street FC with MOTM Taylor Havery scoring twice.

Barrasford, who the weekend previously were beaten by Hexhamshire, claimed a 3-1 win at home to Heddon Under 23’s with Jamie Noutch getting a brace.

Hexhamshire FC meanwhile continued in their position as league leaders with a 2-1 win over Michelangelos.
