Bedlington Terriers are once again top dogs in Senior Cup

BEDLINGTON Terriers were disappointed to go out of the FA Carlsberg Vase at the weekend but they quickly bounced back to form in last night’s Sage Northumberland FA Senior Cup Quarter-Final tie against Morpeth Town at Craik Park.

BEDLINGTON Terriers were disappointed to go out of the FA Carlsberg Vase at the weekend but they quickly bounced back to form in last night’s Sage Northumberland FA Senior Cup Quarter-Final tie against Morpeth Town at Craik Park.

Morpeth goalkeeper Stephen Mundy kept his side in the game by saving Anthony Shandran’s first-half penalty but when Terriers were awarded another spot-kick on the hour, Stephen Richardson broke the deadlock.

Five minutes later Stephen Baptist scored with a free-kick from 25 yards which gave Mundy no chance.

Consett enjoyed an easy passage into the third round of the Brooks Mileson Memorial Cup. They led visitors Northallerton Town with a Michael Mackay hat-trick and one goal by Harrison Davies before Peter Bulmer reduced the deficit.

The Steelmen went nap courtesy of Gavin Ross and the game was into added time as Carl Chillingsworth claimed a second consolation goal for Northallerton.

After moving off the bottom of the STL Northern League Second Division for the first time in weeks on Saturday, Horden CW are again in the relegation places.

Aaron Ramsbottom gave Horden a dream start at Darlington RA when he rounded goalkeeper Philip Pentony after just 10 minutes.

Almost immediately, however, RA levelled as Michael Barnett fired past Tom Orton and the home side clinched all three points when Louis Whensley volleyed in from the edge of the penalty area.

In the Wearside League, Sunderland West End won the Wearside derby but they left it late before defeating Ashbrooke Belford House by the only goal.

With a goalless draw on the cards, Stephen Bogie fired a stoppage-time free-kick past Ashbrooke goalkeeper Keiron Laws.

There was no shortage of goals at Darlington Cleveland Bridge where Wolviston surprisingly enjoyed a six-goal romp against their fifth-top opponents.

Man-of-the-match was unquestionably James Brodie-Myers who scored four of his side’s goals. David Aninakwah and Martin Woodhouse also netted and on a bad night for Darlington, they had Jack Johns sent off with 20 minutes remaining.

Peterlee Town were also in scoring mode at home to Coxhoe Athletic who remain bottom of the table. Robert Huntley, Anthony McDonald (og), Simon Todd and Peter Crawford were the marksmen in a 4-1 victory with Anthony McDonald also on target in the other goal for Coxhoe’s late consolation.
