Day a double bundle of joy for Del's Foalle; NBS NORTHERN ALLIANCE LG PREMIER DIVISION.
YOU cannot take the grin off Seaton Delaval hot-shot Jack Foalle's face at the moment.
Things just could not get any better for the young striker.
Foalle was marvelling at the birth of his son around 12 hours before kick-off and after grabbing two hours sleep packed his boots and headed off to Killingworth Town - where he bagged two goals to bargain.
The No 9 set a 20-goal target at the start of the season and is already on 18 in the league.
His strike partner Steve Brown notched his tenth in the league and further strikes from Phil Cartwright and Callum Gibson ensured a joyous return for Graeme Redpath to his old club.
Stephen Ardley chalked up for Town.
Robert Nolan hit a cracker in Blyth Town's 4-0 success over North Shields Athletic.
Gary Day had put the leaders ahead just before the interval and Anth Moran added the second just after to put Blyth in control.
After Nolan had celebrated his special, Zak Atkinson rounded things off with the second counter.
However, AFC Newbiggin's Ross Muter had a claim for goal of the day - and possibly the season - in the Seasiders' victory over Whickham Sporting.
Muter kept his eyes on the ball as it flew over from the right flank and flung himself into a spectacular scissor-kicked volley from 20 yards which flashed into the net, sparking scenes of celebration.
However, Whickham hit back and as a loose ball bounced in the box Ryan Davenport was on it in a flash to put it away in the bottom corner.
Andrew Carr had something to prove after being dropped to the bench despite scoring twice the previous week.
He came up with the goods when he was brought on, bursting through the defence to fire low into the corner of the net and win it for the Red and Blacks.
Wallington's penalty king Ash McAlpine showed a cool head as he dispatched two spotkicks in the Greens' 6-0 win over Shankhouse. John Paxton and Daniel Thompson also put themselves on the scoresheet twice in the convincing victory while Whitley Bay A maintained the pressure at the top of the table with a 2-0 win over Northbank.
Regular hit-men Andrew Robertson and Nick Jarvis-Smith were on the mark in the success which keeps the Bay five points behind Blyth Town with a game in hand.
Red House Farm remain rooted to the foot of the table but they came from behind to claim a point at Percy Main.
Stewart Wright's turn and drive into the roof of the net put Farm on the back foot but Dean Gallagher rose to head in from a set-piece for the equaliser.
