ASHINGTON CFC’s Northumberland Senior Cup semi-final against Newcastle United Reserves is now set to take place towards the end of the Colliers league campaign.

Woodhorn Lane football secretary Brian Robinson said: “Newcastle will be setting the date e to take place on either Tuesday, April 19, or Wednesday, April 20.

“These are the only available dates open to them.”

“I will know the situation better after Newcastle have finalised details of their Premiership game against Manchester United.”

It had originally been mooted the clash could have been played this week, but those plans were scuppered when the Reserves were handed a league clash against Manchester United Reserves.
