Although the County Schools' Football Association had not yet been established the following was reported in the Durham County Advertiser on Friday 24 April 1908.

"This match between schoolboys representing the counties of Durham and Northumberland took place at Roker Park, Sunderland before only a small attendance. The first half was mostly in Durham's favour, though they had the wind and sun against them. Patterson scored for them (Bolam falling) nearly midway through the first half and soon afterwards the same forward added number two. Northumberland played well but could not find the net.
The second half lacked interest compared with the first section. Durham's good back play kept Northumberland out. Peacock scored Durham's third goal. Bainbridge, the young international, played for Durham and played exceedingly well though he was not able to score."

Result: Durham 3 Northumberland 0

Season 1912-1913
Durham 0 - 0 Northumberland

The Durham Chronicle (Fri 3 January 1913) reported "Durham and Northumberland at Birtley before a fair attendance. The Northumberland Boys were the bigger team and their defence was strong. The goalkeeper, Hamilton, played well and the Durham Boys were the stronger and nippier forward line. Holland put in some nice work but, on the whole, Phillipson was the pick of the line. The game resulted in a goallles draw but both sides having played keenly and vigourously."

Season 1913-1914 ^TOP
Durham 1 - 5 Northumberland Harrison

The Durham Chronicle (Fri 2 January 1914) reported "The match between Northumberland and Durham at West Stanley on Saturday was anything but an exciting exhibition. The wind was a prominent factor in the game with the result that in the first half Durham penned their opponents into their own half. The Northumbrian defence, however, was sound only being beaten once by Harrison of West Stanley. The second half saw a complete turning of the tables. Durham were on the defensive all the while and that defence proved a weak one with the result that Northumberland scored no fewer than five times."

Season 1915-1916
Durham 0 - 2 Northumberland Match abandoned

The Durham Chronicle of Friday 17 March 1916 reported "The inter-county schoolboy match between Durham and Northumberland, which was played at Hendon on Saturday, had to be abandoned 10 minutes after the resumption owing to a heavy snowstorm. There had been no score in the first half but before the game was abandoned Arkle and Armitage had each scored for Northumberland but Durham had not found the net."

Northumberland 3 - 3 Durham

The Durham Chronicle of Friday 28 April 1916 reported "Four internationals took part in the County schoolboys' fixture at Partland Park, Ashington on Saturday. Hughes and Glidden, the Sunderland Players, appearing for Durham whilst Cowell (Newburn) and Wardhaugh (Hartey) appeared on the Northumberland side. Half a dozen goals equally divided between the teams was a result in the game which the fortunes of war varied considerably but which in the end gave the impression Durham were slightly the better team and deserved to claim a win."
