Wearside League

FOR the third consecutive week the programme was badly affected by the weather and only three games went ahead.

FOR the third consecutive week the programme was badly affected by the weather and only three games went ahead.

Prudhoe Town managed to stage their fixture with Peterlee Town, who looked the likely winners for most the match.

They led from the 10th minute through Andrew Place, who beat goalkeeper Mark Fish following a good move down the left flank.

Both sides had chances, but it was not until the 88th minute Prudhoe equalised.

Darren Turnbull delivered a good free-kick which was headed on by Kevin Dixon to substitute Jamie Henderson and he made no mistake from close range.

Silksworth Rangers remain bottom after losing to Darlington Cleveland Bridge, who moved up to fifth from the basement.

The Bridge missed a 29th minute penalty when Michael Carter’s spot-kick hit the crossbar.

He followed in the rebound but the referee disallowed the goal because no other player had touched the ball.

Within six minutes, Silksworth took the lead with a tremendous 25 yard drive from full-back David Stevens but Darlington hit back to take all three points with second-half strikes from Anthony Campbell and Daniel McLachlan.

Coxhoe Athletic’s Durham Trophy tie with Chester-le-Street Whitehills went ahead at the third attempt and it was the Durham side who came out on top.

Neil Charlton gave them an interval lead and after Luke Curry bagged a brace for Whitehills in the space of five minutes, Coxhoe struck twice courtesy of Stephen Parnaby (pen) and Kyle Scott in the final few minutes.
