Sunderland Sunday League: Campbell soups up Woodlands for magnificent seven

Have your say

The Woodlands took advantage of Saltgrass’s poor run of form to ease home 7-3 in Division Four.

Ryan Campbell fired five goals in a fine display of finishing on a day to remember.

An own goal and a Liam Middlemas strike made it seven for Woodlands.

Saltgrass replied through Mason Green and two-goal Reece Young. Keepers Chris Cooke (Saltgrass) and David Middlemas (Woodlands) were the star men.

Only five other league games beat the bad weather.

The Lansdowne recorded their eighth win in a row in Division Three, despatching Mill View CIU 5-0.

Shaun Smith turned in a fine performance and bagged a hat-trick from defence.

Lewis Lynch increased the lead. Mill View had a few chances but could not trouble Nathan Brown in Lansdowne’s goal.

Hope-Hindmarsh completed the scoring.

Kings Arms succumbed to another defeat, as visitors Martin Telfer Carpets were too strong for them on the day in a 6-3 success.

Star man Wayne Henderson finished the game with a hat-trick. Brooke, Simpson and Knight also found the net for the Carpetmen. Kings Arms did put up more of a battle in the second half and managed to reduced the scoreline after Robert Wilson hit a brace. Brother John Wilson hit their third.

SR Dons threw a spanner in the works and temporarily halted Southwick’s Premier Division title challenge with a 3-1 victory.

The Dons are looking strong contenders for the league title themselves after taking this scalp. Graham Stephenson and Chris Stephenson both scored after Southwick gifted them their chances.

Michael Bulmer then found the net for the visitors, but it wasn’t enough as Michael Laws added a third to ensure maximum points.

James Fairley stood out for Silksworth.

Neither Harbour View nor Vane Arms could find the net in a drab, goalless affair in Division One.

Both sides did create chances, but the poor conditions of the pitch prevented a good game. Glen Hargrave starred for Harbour View, while Donkin shone for Vane.

Free Gardeners Arms bounced back from the previous week’s poor result to totally dominate Washington New Tavern in an 8-1 Second Division rout.

James Mitchell grabbed a goal and earned the man of the match award after a great display from midfield.

Mark Lister hit a hat-trick, followed by goals from Charles Old, Darren Green and Andrew Morris. Tavern’s Gary Small replied, but Paul Mitchell finished the scoring for Gardeners late on.
