Change of venue for Ashington High School cup match

The venue for Ashington High School Sports College’s match against Wetherby HS in the ESFA National Cup on Friday has been changed.

The contest – with a place in the quarter-finals of the competition at stake – was originally due to be staged at the home of Wetherby Athletic but will now take place at Collingham FC with a 1pm kick-off.

Ashington High team manager Marc Nash said: “We are trying to relay this news through the various forms of the media because parents and friends amongst many followers are making their own travel arrangements and we want to make them aware so they don’t go to the wrong ground.”

The Wansbeck outfit have already made history by reaching this stage of the tournament and a home tie against Carre’s Grammar School near Rotherham is the reward for the winners of Friday’s showdown in Yorkshire.

The postcode for Collingham FC is LS22 5JR.
