The school also won in the Under-14 final on the same night against Farringdon.

Aidan’s were on top throughout and sealed the win with goals from Aidan Haley, David Vincent and a Harry Jewitt double.

In the Under-12 league, it looks like a two-horse race between Southmoor and Castle View.

Southmoor completed their league fixtures with a 5-2 win at Sandhill View, who also lost narrowly 2-1 to Thornhill.

Castle View have been on a good run of late to challenge for the title. They recorded wins against Sandhill View 8-4, Hetton 3-2 and Monkwearmouth 5-1.

Other results saw third-placed Houghton Kepier draw 4-4 at Hetton, while Venerable Bede saw off Academy 360 6-2.

In the Under-13 league, the league is already decided, with Houghton Kepier having seen off challenges from the likes of St Aidan’s, Thornhill and Sandhill View to claim victory.

They completed their fixtures with a 4-1 win at Thornhill and a comprehensive 6-0 win at Seaham.

St Aidan’s have finished runners-up just one point behind the winners. They made a late push for the league with a 6-1 win at Sandhill View and a 4-0 win away at Monkwearmouth.

Other results saw Venerable Bede beat Red House Academy 5-3 and Dene House 6-2. Castle View were involved in two draws against Seaham and Red House Academy. Southmoor were beaten by both Sandhill View 2-1 and Monkwearmouth 3-0.

In the Under-14 league, Southmoor look favourites to take the title. Still to lose this season, they extended their good form with a convincing 7-1 win against Red House Academy and Hetton 3-0.

They were held 3-3 by second-placed Sandhill View to lose their 100 per cent record in the league.

Sandhill View are also in good form currently with wins against Hetton and St Aidan’s.

In the Under-15 league, it looks like a close finish between Dene and Venerable Bede.

Bede have completed all their games but Dene could match their points tally if they win their remaining games.

Dene had to win all four remaining games and they have managed to win three to date. They saw off competition from St Aidan’s 2-1, Monkwearmouth 5-2 and Academy 360 4-1.

They have one game left against Castle View to decide the outcome of the league title.

Monkwearmouth have been busy catching up with their fixtures and have experienced mixed fortunes. After their defeat by Dene, they recorded draws against Castle View 2-2 and St Aidan’s 2-2. They also beat Southmoor 5-2.

The most improved team of the season must go to Sandhill View, who currently sit in fourth and recorded wins against Academy 360 2-1and Hetton 1-0.

They were, however, beaten 2-0 by league cup winners Castle View.

In the Under-16 league, it is between either St Aidan’s and Monkwearmouth to see who claims the title.

Aidan’s are in the hotseat but Monkwearmouth can still match Aidan’s if they win their remaining games.

Monkwearmouth strengthened their league position with a 2-0 win at home to Castle View.
