Bedlington Terriers have been drawn against four times winners Whitley Bay in the first round of the FA Vase.

They secured their place in Monday’s draw with a comfortable 4-0 win at home against Liversedge FC in Saturday’s second round qualifying round.

The game against the Seahorses will be at Welfare Park on Saturday, November 1.

Against Liversedge, the home side made the perfect start as they took the lead after only four minutes.

Jordan Nellis was played through on the right hand side and after dribbling his way into the box he was fouled by goalkeeper Tom Carlisle.

Top scorer Lee Scott dispatched the resultant penalty into the bottom left hand corner, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way in the process.

The lead was doubled just before the half hour mark with the lively Nellis finding the net.

A long ball over the top was chased down with Nellis looking very much second favourite, however, his turn of pace allowed him to pinch the ball ahead of the goalkeeper and he rolled it into the empty net.

On 36 minutes Bedlington scored a third with Scott getting his second of the game.

A corner kick was not adequately cleared by the Liversedge defence with the ball falling to captain Colin Morton on the edge of the area, and the skipper then lofted it back into the box and Scott met the delivery with a cushioned volley into the bottom right hand corner.

Bedlington scored the fourth and final goal of the game only three minutes into the second half with a piece of individual brilliance from Dylan Williamson.

The ball was picked up by Williamson just inside his own half and he made a surging run into opposition territory, leaving two defenders trailing in his wake, and after drawing the goalkeeper he showed great composure with a calmly slotted effort into the corner of the goal.

Bedlington now wait to see who they will face in the next round.

They return to league action on Saturday with a trip to Marske United.
