Durham City went out of the Brooks Mileson Memorial Cup when Bishop Auckland won by the odd goal in three at Heritage Park.

Bishops made a dream start, scoring twice in the opening 22 minutes. After 11 minutes Danny Brunskill struck from the edge of the penalty area and Keiran Megran then slotted into an empty net.

It wasn’t until two minutes from the end that Durham hit back with a penalty by Scott Fenwick.

Washington took Whitley Bay to the wire before going down by the only goal.

The Newtowners had to replace injured goalkeeper Neal Atkinson at half-time and it was Adam McCann who conceded the winning goal as Paul Chow headed home with only five minutes left on the clock.

North Shields progressed at Alnwick Town who trailed by three goals before Tony Brown converted a late penalty.

Dean Holmes fired the Robins into a half time lead before two goals in as many minutes from leading scorer Gareth Bainbridge put the tie beyond Alnwick.

In an ENL Second Division game, Jarrow Roofing enhanced their promotion prospects with an easy win at home to Chester-le-Street.

Liam McBryde rifled a hat-trick with Stephen Young and Craig Marron (og) also on target before Damien Stevens claimed a 91st-minute consolation goal for the Cestrians.
