Ashington game aagainst Hebburn moved to Friday evening

Hebburn Town and Ashington have agreed to bring Saturday’s Ebac Northern League first division fixture forward to Friday evening (January 31).

Woodhorn Lane football secretary Brian Robson said: “Tom Derrick from Hebburn contacted me to suggest that we play on the Friday so as to stop our game clashing with the Newcastle v Sunderland derby at St James’ Park.

“It was ironic because it was already in our minds at Ashington to ask Hebburn for a change away from the Saturday in any case.”

Kick-off is 7.30pm.
