Colliers cup date set

THE mouthwatering semi-final clash between Ashington CFC and Newcastle United Reserves in the Sage Northumberland Senior Cup will be at Whitley Park, Benton, on Wednesday, April 20, with a 7.30pm kick-off.

Woodhorn Lane football secretary Brian Robinson said: “With the senior side’s outstanding match in the Premiership at home to Manchester United arranged for April 19, it means that our game against Newcastle Reserves can go ahead the following night.

“Newcastle will be playing in their change strip against us as NFA rules state that in the event of a clash – and both clubs play in black and white – it is the home team who shall wear alternative colours.”
