In the Kenny Ball Cup semi-final, Darlington Croft lost 4-2 to Owton Manor. Darlington began in fine style putting the Manor under constant pressure with their all-out attacks and took the lead when John Dee latched onto a long clearance out of defence and went clear to beat the keeper. Shortly after the Manor were down to ten men when their keeper 'Acker' Harrison was red-carded for handling outside the box, Peter Freeman replaced him in goal. Darlington then went 2-0 up when Mark Smith scored with a 30-yard volley. The restart was completely different as Owton came back into the game and Darlington were put under pressure. Ten minutes in and the Manor pulled one back when Terry Bainbridge out-jumped all to head home a cross from Billy Mottram and quickly afterward the Manor went level. Micky Skirving heading in a free kick from Mottram. The Manor now pressed home their advantage and Skirving shot the ball home to give Owton a 3-2 lead. Finally the issue was settled when they scored to make it 4-2 to the Manor. Manor now meet Billingham CGS or Seaton Delaval.

Ferryhill Greyhound ended their season by drawing 1-1 at home against the Lord Seaham, who are fighting to stave off relegation. The Lord Seaham took the lead after 20 minutes when failure to clear their lines by Ferryhill's defence let the Lord Seaham through to put away a loose ball. Stan Cummings levelled by cheekily lobbing Lord Seaham's keeper. Stars for the Greyhound were Keith Watson, Matty Pearson and Stan Cummings.

In Division One, Langley Park Rams Head, who are relegated, turned in an improved performance to draw 1-1 away to fourth place Wallsend RAOB. This display gives hope to a quick return from Division Two, as the Rams are a much better side than their league position suggests.

In Division Two, Barnard Castle Glaxo are promoted. They drew 1-1 at home to British Telecom who are now relegated.

Had the Castle won their last two games they would have been runners up but they continued to do otherwise. The game saw Telecom being most unfortunate. They took the lead and held it until five minutes from time when the Castle levelled.

In Division Three, the championship is still undecided, it is between the three top teams who are all promoted. Hylton Castle, who are favourite, won 2-0 against Durham Strollers. The first half ended goalless but goals from Conlon and Wright saw them home. Second favourites Wynyard Veterans won 3-1 away to Whitley Bay. 3-0 up at the interval saw them finish easy runners although Burke scored a second half goal for the Bay, the Vets were never really put under any pressure.

Billingham Town, the outsiders, won 4-1 at home against Darsley Park, they could still be champions if Hylton lose their last two games and in football anything is possible. 0-0 at half time, Billingham showed just how good they really are by scoring four second half goals courtesy of a brace from Tony Scrum and one apiece from Paul Wilson and Keith Leighton.

Steels FC were just too good for Darlington Railway. They won 4-1 at home but will still be relegated. Wilkinson getting a hat-trick and Marley one.

In Division Four, Crook Town are in fourth place, just missing out on promotion. They won 6-2 at home to the Dagmar. Throughout the season they have shown flashes of brilliance but have lost vital matches, next season could see them getting promotion if only they can maintain the form they have shown like last Saturday.
