Only three games go ahead in Northern Alliance

Just three games beat the freezing conditions on Saturday as the Northern Alliance programme was decimated by snow, ice and waterlogged pitches.

Goals from Craig Boyle and Sean Millington gave North Shields Athletic three points in the Newcastle Building Society premier division as they beat Whitley Bay A.

The result takes Athletic up into third spot.

Ethan Bewley struck twice in Ponteland United’s victory over Newcastle University in the Nike first division. Gary Cook got the other with James Golby striking a consolation.

Wallington are into the semi-finals of the Northumberland FA Senior Benevolent Bowl after an extra time win over Shankhouse.

Matty Blackith’s first half opener for the Greens was cancelled out by a Russell Ward penalty with just three minutes to go, but Kyle Reardon popped up with a tidy curled finish to put the Oakford Park outfit through to a last four meeting at Walker Central.
