Town Are Still in the Title Hunt

Cramlington Town are still in pole position in the First Division and kept themselves in the hunt by completing a league double over Newcastle East End Railway.

The Railwaymen slumped to a fourth successive defeat, going down 2-0 to goals by Craig Potter and Alan Rivett.

Gillford Park, favourites in the race for the First Division title, showed their class against hosts Berwick United.

Berwick had won their last three games at the Swan Leisure Centre and an upset seemed on the cards when Mike Robison fired them into an early lead.

But the Cumbrian visitors came back strongly to clinch a 4-1 victory with goals shared by Steve Skinner (penalty), Richie Elwood, Chris Grainger and teenager Mark Worral.

Gosforth Bohemian Garnett have won only once in their last seven outings, and were beaten by Wallington for the second time this term.

The game's only goal was scored by Tom Lavender early in the second half.

After showing improved form of late, Percy Main went down to their first league defeat since early December. In a hot-tempered contest against Penrith United at Purvis Park they lost 2-0.

Penrith took the lead on 50 minutes as Dean Guy took advantage of hesitancy in the home defence, crossing low for Dan Gullen to drill home.

With the Villagers pressing forward, Penrith caught out Percy Main as a long ball from defence fell to Fraser Murray, who fired home to double his side's lead.
