The Sunderland side, already through to the Durham County Minor Cup final, lost out 3-0 at Middlestone Moor Masons Arms in their Auckland Charity Cup quarter-final.

Thomas Foster was their man of the match, but their Crook and District League hosts won thanks to a second-half hat-trick from Mason Morrow.

Durham City Reserves’ title ambitions were rocked by a 1-0 defeat at West Auckland Tunns in the only league match.

Steven Corner grabbed the vital goal for Tunns, whose star man was Dean Calvert. Chris Pattinson was City’s top performer.

West Auckland moved above City into third place, just a point behind leaders Wheatley Hill WMC, but having played two games more. Tunns have only one league match left.

Hall Farm Glasshus are the favourites as they trail Wheatley Hill by a point but have two matches in hand.
