Due to the wet and wintry weather the North Northumberland League programme was badly affected at the weekend with five games being postponed.

Bamburgh missed the opportunity to leapfrog into second place in the first division when they were held to a 3-3 draw by Red Row, a result which keeps the Castle side in third.

A penalty from Gareth McCann, a free kick from Will Farmer and a James Dixon goal earned Bamburgh a share of the points, whilst Red Row left with their spoils courtesy of counters from Paul and Darren Smith and Jordan Giles.

It was local derby time in Berwick with Highfields United entertaining Springhill at the Sports Centre.

And it was the visitors who left the happier, adding another three points to their tally with a 3-1 win, which leaves Highfields trailing at the bottom of the table with only one win to their credit so far this season.

David Jardine, Paul Johnson and Michael Antcliffe were all on target for the visitors with Simon Hargreaves netting for the home side.

In the second division Wansbeck marched on at the top of the table with a 3-2 away win over Amble St Cuthbert.

Brent Aisbett, Steven Frater and Chris Hogg were all on target for the league leaders, with Connor Ramsay and Liam Smith netting for Amble.

In the local derby clash between Embleton and Craster it was Embleton who took the honours with a 5-2 victory.

Brett Rogerson, Jason Imeson and Spencer Eardley were amongst the Embleton scorers with Michael Brown and Shaun Toal both finding the net for Craster.
