Player-manager Tony Ganley inspired his Millfield Oddies side to a 3-2 victory over Wearmouth CW Juniors in Division Three.

Hanley was in outstanding form as he led the line well, and saw David Laing, man of the match Dylan Jardin and Paul Maw fire Oddies to victory.

Wearmouth hit a couple of late goals, thanks to Craig Williams and Gary Stoker, but Oddies saw out the win. Abdulrahman Alhajeri stood out for Wearmouth.

The Park’s Lewis Fairley proved he knew where the goal was with a clinical hat-trick against Westmount in a 3-1 win.

He also earned the man-of-the-match award and now has eyes on him from the teams in higher divisions. Stephen Dixon netted for Westmount, whose star man was keeper Dan Parnaby.

Wear United recorded back to back wins as they put bottom-of-the-league Railway Tavern to the sword, 5-1.

United ended the first half three goals to the good, thanks to Wade and a Richie Morton double.

Railway replied midway through the second half, but Luke Tate’s bullet header and another header from Doley saw United home.

Carl Young fired a hat-trick for TC and nearly won them the game until a late equaliser from Connor Morrison gave Ryhope New Railway a valuable point in a 3-3 thriller.

Robbie Middlebrook struck twice for Ryhope before the late leveller, while Chris Hutcheon starred.

Shaun Fisk was at it again as he plundered a hat-trick to down The Dolphin in a 5-0 Grange Park win.

Davey Sloanes grabbed a brace to complete the scoring. Karl Hodgson did his best for Dolphin, but they weren’t at the races.

Hot-shot David Pattison smashed five goals past poor Dom O’Neill in the Penshaw CC goal as Silksworth Catholic Club were in rampant form.

Brent Brooke hit a brace and Brogan Smith, Darren Davie and Gavin McAnaney finished the scoring in a 10-1 romp.

Sean Williams hit Penshaw’s consolation, with Jack Brown their top performer.

O’Brien Waste Recycling wasted a great opportunity, blowing a 2-0 lead to go down 4-3 at Silksworth Paragon.

Huggins and Harrison put O’Brien 2-0 up, but the game suddenly turned on its head as star man Kieron Petre hit two fine goals and George McCain soon put Paragon in front. Sub Conor Souter levelled, but McCain hit his second to seal Paragon’s triumph. Michael Parkin was O’Brien’s top man.

Leaders TS Potters continued their winning streak with a dominant performance in a 4-0 success at The Ashbrooke.

Joe Walton scored in either half to continue his excellent start to the season and Kieron Martin popped up with a fine solo goal.

Things went from bad to worse for the Ashbrooke as Michael Atkinson suffered a serious leg injury and soon after Kyle Young made it 4-0.

The league would like to wish Michael a speedy recovery.

Farringdon ISL came out on top in the big derby, edging a 3-2 win at Farringdon Detached.

Luke Richardson’s brace, followed by a Luke Page rocket, proved just enough. Detached rallied with goals from Will Crew and David Stevens, with Rhys Brown their star man.

SR Dons handed out a 7-1 beating to Myers, inspired by four-goal Craig Watson.

Kieron McDonald, Chris Laws and Leigh Guthrie also netted, with James Baxter replying. David Sanderson stood out for Myers, with Lewis Herron best for Dons.

An Anth Ross brace was not enough for Southwick as mighty Hylton Castle TWR were too strong and ran out comfortable 6-2 winners.

Callum Hodgson fired a treble then Tom Callaghan, Mark Cresswell and star man Marc Moon rounded off the scoring. Nathan Cummings shone for Southwick.
