Quarter-final in Cramlington sure to go ahead

Most football matches scheduled for this weekend in Northumberland are likely to fall victim to the weather, but Saturday’s Bay Plastics Combination Cup quarter-final between Northern Alliance League first division sides Cramlington Town and Longbenton is definitely going ahead.

That’s because it is being played on the 3G pitch at Cramlington Sporting Club, at Highburn, kicking off at 1.30pm.

Admission is free.
