This Saturday we return to competitive football to play Ponteland Utd in Round 2 of the Team Valley Carpets Challenge Cup.

This meeting comes only a month after we met in the league, the result being an entertaining 3-3 draw. Since then Ponteland have picked up some excellent results and are in fine form.

Us on the other hand, have only managed 1 game since then which was a rather dour affair against Birtley Town.

Kick off is 2pm and will be sponsored by:

Rutherford 1-2 Ponteland Utd

Our first game of a hectic week of cup action so us exit the cup at the quarter final stages.

Like the previous league encounter, the game was full of quality and we burst into the lead of 12 mins through Sam Hodgson. However, it only took Ponteland 2 minutes to equalise and this is how it stayed until the brink of half time. As the minutes ticked down though, Ponteland took the lead.

We worked hard in the second half to test our opponents but Ponteland are in fine form, probably the best team we've faced this season so far with the exception of Newcastle Uni, and they saw the game out. Well done to all players on show for putting on the entertainment and we wish Ponteland well for the next round.

Next up for us is a trip to local neighbours Whickham FC in the Durham Challenge Cup.
