In a repeat of last week’s Sanderson Cup semi, it was the same outcome when Tweedmouth Rangers beat Bamburgh 5-1 in the Anderson Cup semi-final on Saturday.

Bamburgh hit the post early on and they took the lead from a free kick 25 yards out.

Tweedmouth then lost Shane MacGregor with a broken foot, but after Lee Dodd was upended in the box Craig Howard equalised from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time.

In the second half Gary Robertson struck a ‘worldie’ from outside the box to give Tweedmouth the lead and Dodd added a third after a powerful run.

Bamburgh were awarded a penalty, but missed from the spot, and this allowed the visitors time to regroup and a second from Robertson was followed up by a tap in from Ashley Pedrich.

In the final Tweedmouth Rangers will face Red Row, who beat Wansbeck 2-1.

In division one Lowick beat North Sunderland 2-0. It was 0-0 at half-time but second half strikes by Steven Drummond and Marco lambert gave Lowick the points.
