Lumley, who lead the table and have lost just once in the league, made their exit from the Sunderland Eye Infirmary Cup at the hands of Herrington.

Simon Dolman, a regular scorer for the Cestrians, found the net in the first half when Michael Hedley was on target for Herrington. The game continued to flow from end to end and it was Herrington who scored the only goal in the second 45 minutes when Kyle Dinsdale struck to earn his side their passage into the next round of the prestigious competition.

Despite scoring four times, Sacriston lost to Hebburn. The tie looked all over at the halfway stage when the South Tyneside outfit led 3-0 but in a pulsating second period Sacriston fought back only to lose by the odd goal in nine.

Matthew Mustard bagged a brace of goal for Sacriston and others on target for the home side were Chris Maslin and Gregg Coates.

Dunlop, who are bottom of the table and without a point, tasted success with a 3-1 victory at home to Lambton Street whose consolation goal was scored by David Snowdon.

Jarrow St Bedes went through but only after a penalty shoot-pout winning 6-5 after the sides had shared four goals. Mark Lawton twice scored for Ryhope before the exciting finale ensued.
