Ashington will host Skrill Conference Premier side Gateshead in a pre-season friendly at Woodhorn Lane at the end of July.

Ashington’s assistant manager Perry Briggs said: “Gateshead narrowly missed out on making a return to the Football League recently after going down 2-1 against Cambridge United in the promotion play-off final at Wembley, so for us to get them in a friendly is fantastic.

“It is definitely a feather in our cap and shows how far this club has come in attracting the likes of Gateshead.”

Ashington’s pre-season friendlies are: Tuesday, July 15, South Shields, home, 7pm; Friday, July 18, Alnwick, away, 7.30pm; Tuesday, July 22, Whickham, home, 7.30pm; Saturday, July 26, Seaham, away, 3pm; Tuesday, July 29, Gateshead, home, 7pm; Friday, August 1, Hebburn, home, 7.30pm.
