Heed gan doon

As if the Regents’ promotion chase wasn’t providing enough tension at Gosforth, their first team the Empire finished their own season with their 1st Division status hanging by a thread. Tynedale Tans had already pulled off a miraculous series of results to overtake them, and Gateshead A needed only one win – or a draw and some game points – from their three matches in hand to do likewise.

Unfortunately for Gateshead, the three matches in hand were against Tynemouth Hobbits, Durham City and Morpeth A. They lost all of them, and will return to the 2nd Division next season.

The final Division 1 leaderboards have been published. Paul Robson of Durham City takes the hotly contested silver medal.
