Farringdon Detached secured their second league win of the campaign to move up to sixth place.

The Sunderland side leapfrogged Durham City Reserves in the table after beating them 3-1.

Man of the match Connor Gales, Craig Stewart and Adam Tasker grabbed the goals for Farringdon.

Hall Farm Glasshus got a pick-me-up following their Durham County Minor Cup exit, thanks to an impressively comprehensive 4-0 victory at Alston Moor Sports Club in the South Durham Bowl.

The only other game was an Auckland Charity Cup tie, with Seaton United winning 3-1 away to Heighington, who had led 4-1 when the original match was abandoned.
