Cragside 2 - 1 Ponteland B
 
Cragside travelled to Ponteland Middle School to play two games this week against their B and C teams. Cragside took the lead in the first half when Jake W ran through the defence and scored a great goal into the bottom corner. Cragside doubled their lead soon after with some great play down the left with Lewis N passing to Max H who played the ball in to James N who saw his shot blocked but Shea H followed up with a great shot that smashed into the side of the goal. Cameron U made an impressive debut as 2nd half sub and managed to get some good tackles and passes in before Ponteland B managed to bag a late consolation goal after some good play down the right hand side.
 
Cragside 2 - 4 Ponteland C
 
In their second game of the evening, Cragside were unfortunate to lose 4-2 against Ponteland C. Ponteland took an early lead, which they doubled shortly after to make it 2-0. A great strike from Jake W made the score 2-1 to the hosts. Towards the end of the game, and with Cragside tiring, Ponteland added another two goals to make it 4-1, before Jake W added his second of the game with a stunning free kick to make the final score 4-2. It was a determined performance from Cragside - in particular the resolute back line of Ben S, Lewis N, Benji S and Callum M - who were unfortunate to lose to two wonder-strikes from Ponteland. Well done, lads; a great effort.
