The North East Regional League returns to action this weekend following almost a three month winter break. The North East Regional League Premiership and Championship enters it’s fourth round of the 2018/19 season. With players training hard during the winter break, The Edge in Leeds is prepared for wheel screeching, spin-kicking Powerchair football action.

So far this season in the Premiership it has been extremely competitive and tight as the league table shows both Middlesbrough and Leeds Chariots are sat in both first and second place. Middlesbrough are just above Leeds on goal difference with the Teeside club having 40 goals in comparison to Leeds who have 22 goals. Meanwhile, Electric Eels are sitting behind in third with 8 points, a one point margin between themselves and Newcastle who are in forth with 7 points. However, Middlesbrough Reserves are sat in fifth with 3 points and Leeds Dynamos with just one point so far this season.

The North East Championship season has been a very entertaining so far with debut side Bradford Hot Wheels sitting in the top spot with 15 points from six matches. But sitting a point behind them are Middlesbrough Discovery with 14 points, due to the team having a break from this round they can observe the table for what will be a tight finish. In the mid table position, sits Leeds Centurions with 7 points and Darlington with 3 points. The bottom section of the table sits Electric Eels Academy with only 3 points and Newcastle Magpies with only a point. Just like the Premiership this season so far has been entertaining on the eye. Let’s see who is playing this coming Sunday in the Championship:
