Premier: Riding Mill A v NECA A Byker A v Casuals NECA A v Byker A NESLC Eagles v YMCA N.Tyneside A Springwell A v Cramlington Stingers
NECA A and Byker A cannot postpone or agree to a postponement of any further matches until one of their outstanding ones has been played
Division One: Seaburn Dene v North Fire A Division Two: Ouston A v O.E. Crocks (Rearranged) Newton B v Springwell B
Division Three: Sacriston Comets v NESLC Codgers Division Four – None
There are two weeks for rearranged fixtures and Handicap cup games – If possible try to rearrange in these weeks rather than in the Christmas break.
Dale is keeping the league tables up to date daily and so far nearly all results are coming in on the day after the match. Well done but please remember to send them to me as well as stated on the result sheets.
This makes life easier for me when compiling the weekly copy for our regular column in the Evening Chronicle on Wednesdays.
