U13 Ken Peddieson Trophy

Unfortunately there were two late withdrawals so only Bishop Auckland, Chester-le-Street and Newcastle took part.

U15 Fred Fullerton Trophy

A late withdraw from Newcastle saw just 4 teams vying for the title this year. After a couple of 1-0 and 2-0 victories after the first 2 rounds saw us going into the final round with 3 teams able to win the trophy. Until halfway through the second half, these 3 teams were all level on 6 points which would have made for an interesting outcome of penalties to decide who went home with the trophy. However, a 1-0 victory by East Northumberland over Bishop Auckland meant we could decide a winner, although both teams were all level on points, goals for and goals against, it had to go down to the score between them which saw East Northumberland lift the title and Bishop Auckland runners-up. Sunderland finished 3rd with Chester-le-Street, Washington and Derwentside in 4th place.


Alan Grimes Memorial Trophy: A closely contested final ended with Bernard Gilpin Primary School (Lambton & Hetton PSFA) winning the competition by 1 point.

Year 4 Trophy: Hill View, with 3 wins from 3 matches played in the final, were worthy winners of the Year 4 Trophy for the first time.

Primary Inter-association 9-a-side

Derwent & Medomsley Cup Final: Darlington started strongly and, after scoring an early goal, dominated the game against a weary looking Newcastle team. The game could have been out of sight well before tthe Quakers scored a second goal just before half time. Newcastle were much livelier in the second half and enjoyed a period where they dominated play and carved out a succession of chances which they either failed to take or were thwarted by an excellent display from the Darlington goalkeeper. Darlington scored a last minute third goal to seal a deserved victory for the third season in succession and 4th time overall.
