James Cartwright rounds up the latest football action on Teesside.
Northern League Division One
Frustratingly the weather was once again to blame as Marske United missed out on two home fixtures against Newcastle Benfield and Stockton Town.
In order to get games on, Saturday’s clash with Shildon AFC will be played at Billingham Town’s Bedford Terrace.
In the games that did take place, Stockton Town drew 3-3 at home with Ashington AFC.

James’s game of the week
It’s possible to get two matches in the Teesside football fix this weekend as the action kicks off this evening with a Teesside derby between Billingham Synthonia and Guisborough Town. Can the Priorymen pick up a third straight away win?
On Saturday 4th plays 5th in the Northern League Division One as Marske meet Shildon at Billingham Town’s Bedford Terrace.
