Ashington to host FA Cup trophy

Football fanatics in Wansbeck will have a unique opportunity to see the FA Cup when it will be on show in Ashington’s Woodhorn Lane clubhouse on Thursday August 13.

Viewing will be open to the public between 4pm to 8pm and will be followed with a question and answer session by Colliers manager Steve Harmison, who also hopes to have a couple of players in attendance.

Ashington football secretary Brian Robson said: “The FA have been in touch as we will be starting our cup run at home to Albion Sports two days later on August 15.

“We are excited that they have decided to bring the cup to our club and it will be a fantastic chance for the public to come along and have a look at the famous trophy.”
