Charlestown became the first Northern NSW NPL side to have victories across the opening four rounds when they downed Jaffas 2-1 on Sunday.
The Blues beat the effort of Edgeworth, who won in rounds one to three in 2016. Other sides have been undefeated through four rounds.
The record-breaking win featured the first-grade debut of defender Zac Lloyd, a Charlestown junior who has returned from the Jets youth.
** The immediate playing future of marquee Weston signing Kew Jaliens appears no clearer after inconclusive scans of his injured ankle.
The 39-year-old former Dutch international was injured in the pre-season Heritage Cup and is yet to feature in the NPL.
Bears coach Steve Piggott said Jaliens had reported that scans last week on his swollen foot were inconclusive and he was seeking a second opinion.
** The bye has come at a perfect time for Maitland.
The Magpies lost Ryan Clarke (quad) in the warm-up for Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Valentine. Matt Thompson (cork) and Matt Comerford (soreness) battled through and Mat Swan came off with a groin injury.
Coach Michael Bolch said Swan was the biggest concern but the rest would be fit for the round-six clash with the Jets Youth.
