A youthful Rothbury side proved no match for Amble as the final scoreline suggests .
Five goals in each half for the home club with only a Ben Storey goal proving scant consolation for the visitors .
Liam Ramsey four , Reece Ramsay three, Connor Stroughton two and a Dan Moyle goal made up the final Amble total .

ASHINGTON TOWN MINERS 3

The second half was just as close with a Scott Neal goal sealing the win for the Miners .
EMBLETON WR 5
This was a cracking cup tie between two fully committed sides.
Two early goals gave Embleton the lead but a Kevin Cumming strike saw Wooler pull a goal back before half time.
The visitors shaded the second half and it was the final 10 minutes before Embleton made sure of the result .
