Wednesday is our last midweek game until next Spring as visitors Wallington travel to Farnacres.

Wallington have so far won 2 and lost 3 of their opening games and it is always a well-contested game against the greens from the Scotch Gap.

Last season Wallington celebrated their 140th year (something we do this year) so this is probably the oldest fixture in North East football!

We collected another useful win in our last game with a 2-0 victory over Gateshead A

Kick off is 6:15pm and all are welcome. Free entry.

Rutherford 4-2 Wallington

Hugely entertaining game with lots on offer. We took the lead in the 4th minute via Sam Hodgson's penalty following a handball then Dylan Howourth had a glorious chance to double the lead a handful of minutes later.

Wallington crept back into the game but yet again our defence stood well and keeper Heiniger was in fine form.

Early in the second half there was a turning point where Heiniger made a stunning double save to keep us in the lead and you could see this give our players more confidence. Howourth scored our 2nd with a left footed effort then Zak Atkinson scored a stunning goal following great advantage play from the referee.

Wallington then pulled a goal back with an excellent breakaway effort for 3-1 but Zak Atkinson headed home from a corner for 4-1. Then in the final minute a late penalty was scored to make the final score 4-2.

Next up is AFC Newbiggin at home on Saturday 2 September.
