Blyth Spartans and North Shields will go head-to-head at the home of Newcastle United in the Northumberland FA Techflow Group Senior Cup Final next week.

This year’s game will kick-off at 7.30pm on Wednesday, May 4, at St James’ Park.

The first stage of this competition was played in October 2015, with 12 teams taking part – including Newcastle United’s Under-21 side.

In the semi-finals Blyth Spartans beat Heaton Stannington 6-0 while North Shields earned a hard fought 2-1 victory against FA Vase finalists Morpeth Town.

John Ackerley, chief Executive officer at Northumberland FA, said: “We are looking forward to the finale of this year’s Senior Cup competition, which has been incredibly competitive.

“Our county cups highlight the calibre of teams in Northumberland, so I would encourage any football enthusiasts to come along and watch this and any of the other finals.

“Both teams have done exceptionally well and I’m delighted they have the opportunity to play at St James’ Park, one of football’s most iconic stadiums.”

General admission to the Techflow Group Senior Cup Final will cost £6, with entry for concessions priced at £3.

This county cup final is one of 15 scheduled to be played across Northumberland as the season draws to a close.
