Ashbrooke Belford House scored four times away from home last night, but still went down 5-4 at Boldon CA.

Adam Sharp bagged a brace for Boldon, with Adam Henderson, Adam Bell and Luke Patterson also beating Ashbrooke goalkeeper Brett Wilson.

Ashbrooke, who were never level after conceding the first goal, replied through Jonny Wightman, Adam Hobbs, Michael Young and Jordan Birnie.

The Wearsiders have still to win this season, having managed just two draws in six league games.

Sunderland West End are second in the table and the only side with a 100 per cent record.

Leighton Chapman and Kieran Martin were the matchwinners against Prudhoe Town in a 2-1 home victory at Ford Quarry, and Anth Nelson’s side has now won five matches out of five in the league.

Newcomers Murton are still finding their feet and they were hit for six in Cumbria by Cleator Moor Celtic, whose marksmen were Luke Close (2), Josh Charlton, Adam Meegan, Stuart Shaw and Craig Scott.

Although Ryan Martin got a goal back at 2-1, his strike was Murton’s only success.

Seaham Red Star Reserves were in scoring form on their opponents’ ground, but they succumbed to a 5-3 defeat.

Matthew Mustard and Paul Atkinson had them two goals ahead at Annfield Plain just past the half hour mark.

Jamie Henderson and Jamie Leathard restored parity, but the Star then went 3-2 up thanks to Tom Scott’s strike.

Annfield finished strongly, though, scoring three times through Kieran Gohery, Leathard and Michael Brown to cement a 5-3 win.

Horden CW dominated for long periods, but couldn’t find a way past a resolute Leam Rangers’ defence and the Tynesiders finished 2-0 victors with strikes by Ben Miller and Alan Mulholland.

Ross Morrow, with a brace, player-manager Carl Beasley and Connor Dunlavey earned Spennymoor Town Reserves the points with a 4-2 victory at home to Richmond Town, whose two goals were credited to Richmond goalkeeper Richard Oliver and Mark Simms.

Redcar Athletic are the early-season front runners after they inflicted a rare defeat on champions Stockton Town.

An own goal by Chris Dunwell set them on their way and after Adam Preston added a second, Lewis Wood completed a comprehensive 3-0 victory.

Luke Larkin (2), Lee Jones and Matthew Gardner swept Hartlepool to the easiest of wins at Wolviston, whose sole reply came from Ryan Brown.

Harton and Westoe CW are up to third following victory over Whitehaven. Adam Smith netted the only goal for the South Tynesiders.
