A look at the games involving local sides.

NORTH SUNDERLAND 2 TWEEDMOUTH RANGERS 4

In the windy conditions both teams played good football throughout the game.

The visitors led by two goals at half-time and although North Sunderland pulled two goals back after the break through Jack Convery and Robert Scott, Tweedmouth always looked the more comfortable side and they netted two more before the final whistle to secure the points.

Stuart Coyle netted twice for Rangers with Lee Dodd and Craig Walker also both on target.

Goalscorers for Alnmouth were Jordan Frost (2) and Andrew and Peter Murray.

BELFORD 6

EMBLETON WR 2

Although Belford had most of the possession during the first half, they failed to take advantage of the situation and goals from Alex Beefy and Dale Vint saw the visitors 1-2 ahead at the break.

Their goalscorers were: Mark Dunlop (2), Fraser Tait (2), Darren Thompson (penalty) and Ryan Lillico.

ALNMOUTH 4

EGLINGHAM 2

A Sean Angus goal had given Eglingham the lead at half-time and after the break Alistair Batey netted a second for the visitors to seemingly put them in control.

SPRINGHILL 2

TWEEDMOUTH HARROW 2

Springhill and Tweedmouth Harrow had to settle for a share of the spoils in a match where both sides missed from the penalty spot.

LYNEMOUTH ANGLERS 1

Neither side could find a breakthrough in the first half, but in the second half Sam Cowans struck twice for Wooler with Jack Strangeways and an own goal putting the Glendale side 4-0 up.

BAMBURGH CASTLE 9

Bamburgh stormed through to the second round of the Bilclough Cup with a convincing win away to Highfields.

Johnny Johnson let the way with four goals for the visitors with David Mitchell, Anthony Parkin, Dan Johnson, Dan Patten and Andrew Baillie completing the rout.

ANDREW BAILLIE MADE UP THE FINAL BAMBURGH TOTAL.
