Saints reign-despite the rain; Schools Football.

THE adverse weather has had a negative impact on schoolboy football so far this season.

Saturday's opening event, the Northumberland Senior Schools' seven-a-side competition, fell victim to the rain for only the second time in its history.

Unfortunately, the event cannot be replayed due to a full league programme.

The Northumberland under-18 sqauds trials were called off on Monday night, but management duo Andy Costello and Matthew Turner will try again at Heaton Manor tomorrow night.

One school unaffected by the weather is St Cuthbert's.

Its under-14 side has already travelled to Hartlepool to play Dyke House in the ESFA Cup - and recorded a 2-0 victory thanks to Steven Mills and Levi Sample.

The under-13s defeated Chantry 3-1 on Saturday in a friendly and visit Newminster in the County Cup next Thursday.

Saints' under-12s go to Billingham next Wednesday (4.00) to play St Michael's in the ESFA Cup.

They travel in high spirits after beating Chantry 9-1 in a friendly.

Goals from Daniel Mills (3), Brendan Dowling (2), Dylan Thompson (2), Matthew Elsender and Reece Young settled the game.

ST CUTHBERTS (from): Connor Slomski, Connor Brumwell, George Wilson, Nathan Ray, Jack Williams, Dylan Thompson, Samuel Ajayi, Adam Laidler, Reece Young, Paul Moody, Kane Holford, Daniel Mills, Crag Barker, Matthew Elesender, Brendan Dowling.
