Shildon moved up to fifth in the ENL First Division on a day when nearly all the league was washed out.

The Railwaymen have suddenly hit form, and now they’re five points behind third placed Consett, with three games in hand.

Manager Danny Moore said; “That’s our third league win on the bounce, all away from home, so we’re really pleased with performances over the last three league games.”

Danny Craggs gave them the lead midway through the first half, but Steve Roberts levelled just before half time.

However, in the second half, Billy Greulich-Smith blasted home from the edge of the box, then David Palmer ran half the length of the pitch and caught Guisborough pushing up to score the third.

Stockton Town are now second after they beat league leaders Hebburn 3-1 at Bishopton Road West.

Adam Nicholson headed Stockton into the lead from a right-wing corner, but Hebburn’s Michael Richardson pounced on a loose ball for the equaliser.

Jamie Owens put Stockton back into the lead with a shot on the turn on 52 minutes, then sub Nathan Mulligan tapped in the third.

Stockton manager Micky Dunwell said; “I thought we dominated all but ten minutes of the game.”

In the second division, Durham City went down 4-0 at Carlisle City, which means they are still a point above bottom club Brandon.

Manager Andy Inness said; “There were so many positives from the game which may sound strange after a 4-0 defeat. We were on the wrong end of a couple of very fine margins and some very strange decisions which ultimately cost us in a very competitive game. I’m confident that we are close to turning a corner if we keep putting that much effort into each performance.”

In the other game, leaders West Allotment hammered Sunderland West End 8-2.

The rest of the programme was postponed because of waterlogged pitches, which means that some clubs haven’t now played a league game for a month.
