Senior Cup to be decided on the night

The Northumberland Senior Cup will be decided on the night with extra time and penalties if required.

On Wednesday night Ashington and Whitley Bay will go head to head for the trophy at St James’ Park.

The Colliers will be wearing a new black and white kit – which they wore for the first time on Saturday against Norton & Stockton Ancients.

Football secretary Brian Robson said: “Ashington are the away side and as such get the choice of strips to wear.

“I naturally chose our first colours of black and white.”

Five-year-old Mya Simpson, from North Seaton, who could be suffering from infantile Parkinson’s disease, and whose charity is supported by Ashington CFC, will be one of two Ashington mascots on the night alongside Ewan, son of Ashington physiotherapist Leanne Symonds.
