Bedroom through to cup final for second time

ONCE again the weather affected the vast majority of fixtures in the Standard Security Blyth and Wansbeck Sunday League with only seven games surviving.

Whitley Bay Bedroom are through to the Eric Anderson final for the second season running.

They took full advantage of an off day for South Beach to record a 4-1 win.

Scoring for the Whitley side was John Leach (2), Graeme Murray and Jed Findley. Adrian Watson scored for the Beach.

The Bedroom will have to wait to see whom they meet in the final on March 20.

In the George Davison Cup, The Eagle progressed to the next round when they defeated Tynemouth Gunner 8-1, who had Paul Bonnick on target.

The Alan Davison Cup saw Burradon and New Fordley closer to another final when they defeated Monkseaton Hunting Lodge 6-2. Goals for Burradon came from Jordon Watson (2), Ian Lee, Paul Willery, Michael Burns and Kieron Parsons.

Andrew McCartney scored both goals for the Monkseaton side.

The Albert were unlucky to go down by the only goal of the game at home against Ashington Mortimer.

In the premier division Newbiggin and Whitley Bay Cibos were involved in a nine-goal thriller.

In the end, Newbiggin edged it 5-4.

Goals for Newbiggin came from Tony Messenger (2), Ashley Smith, Darren Burn and Colin McLellend. Scoring for the Cibos was Paul King (2), Chris Woolley and Carl Patterson.

Both sides commented on their referee Rob Davison who had an outstanding game.

In the only other game, division two leaders Percy Arms nearly slipped up at home against Ashington Fox Cover. After leading 2-0 and well in control of the game, they gave away a sloppy goal and nearly paid the penalty when the Cover hit the post in the final seconds.

Once again, Paul Huck scored both goals for the Percy. Kris Allington was on target for the Cover.
