We return to league action this weekend as we welcome visitors Ponteland Utd.

The Black & Whites have had an up and down start so far and sit 3 points behind us with a game in hand. Their last game was a 2-1 win against Wallington.

We are in great form after 6 wins and 2 draws from our last 8 games and with new signings Andy Gowing and Rob Jefferson in the squad,we're looking to push on.

Kick off is 2:30pm and all are invited!

Rutherford 3-3 Ponteland Utd

An entertaining game although we weren't at our best yet scored 3 goals and our unbeaten run continues.

Richard Heiniger made yet another excellent double save early on to keep it 0-0 then an Alex Benjamin free kick from 30 yards hit the post. But it was us who took the lead as Andy Davidson reacted quickest when the Pont keeper kept out Jefferson's effort.

Ponteland equalised less then 5 mins later as as a snapshot from the corner of the box flew in, but then Rob Jefferson, making his debut, hit a rocket into the top corner for 2-1.

But Pont came back again and a great solo run saw them make it 2-2.

Straight after half time Pont took the lead for the first time in the match as a shot took a wicked deflection off Sam Hodgson.

We kept going though and as time was running out, Tom Wood jinked his way into the box past 3 defenders to score our third.

Our unbeaten run now stands at 9 games which is a marvellous improvement on last year, and credit goes to every player who keeps putting the effort in. They're playing some excellent football and the club is very proud of them.

Next up is a Durham Trophy game against Durham City Reserves from the Durham Alliance League
