Saturday saw the true brilliance of a central venue league. For four hours, everywhere you looked over the playing fields of Glendale Middle School, were games that mattered.
In the U14s Rothbury were looking to add to their season, already crowned league champions they went into Saturday’s game looking for a victory that would take them to the Premiership Cup Final and a chance for the double. Yet in a tight game against Lowick Rangers, they were unable to match the Rangers solitary goal and lost 1-0. This result set up an all Lowick final as the Lowick Falcons defeated Alnmouth. Next Saturday’s Final match-up will be intriguing.
The U14 Championship cup saw Wooler beat Berwick in a 5-3 minor classic! Brandon Crombie and Kieran Jones both scored twice for Wooler with Gregor Sharp adding a fifth. Wooler will play Seahouses in the Championship final.
The U12 Premiership Cup was split into two semi finals where first played fourth and second played third. Both games were very competitive. Tweedmouth Amateurs further burnished their league title winning quality by overcoming Longhorsley 2-1. In the second game Lowick Leopards and Rothbury drew 0-0.
In the U12 Championship semi final Eyemouth eye their second consecutive success. Last year they won the U10 version of the competition and this year they got to the final of the U12s by beating Wooler 3-1.
In the U10 Premiership Cup Wooler were desperately unlucky to lose 4-2 against Berwick Juniors, this season’s best Glendale League team.
