This is an important cup weekend for Whitley Bay FC, starting with the FA Vase First Round tie away to Bedlington Terriers on Saturday. This is without doubt the tie of the round and Bay fans will be turning up in large numbers at Welfare Park for what looks like being a closely contested local derby.
Less than 24 hours later, Whitley's Women's team will be playing at Hillheads in the 3rd Qualifying Round of the FA Women's Cup, kick off 1.00pm on Sunday afternoon. The team had an impressive 1-0 win away at York City in the last round to draw an attractive home tie against high flying Liverpool Feds. The Merseyside outfit are sitting top of the FA Premier League Northern Division One and will provide stiff opposition.
Whitley Bay Women reached the Second Round Proper last season and were narrowly defeated 1-0 by Premier League Blackburn Rovers and had fantastic home support during their remarkable run.
So come and support the lasses, 1.00pm on Sunday at Hillheads. Admission is £2 for adults and £1 for children and concessions.
Let's hope there's a double celebration after this weekend's cup ties!
