Marc Nash and his men make the short trip south as they face off against Hebburn Town for a second bank holiday encounter of the season.
The Robins will be looking to correct things after Boxing Day’s disappointing defeat at home to Shildon.
A good run out midweek, resulted in a 5-0 win against Killingworth, which gave the opportunity for our youth fringe players to showcase their abilities.
Hebburn are flying high this season, finding themselves sitting in 4th place, winning two of their last 3, including 1-0 win on Boxing Day over local rivals Dunston.
The previous fixture earlier in the season had plenty of drama, with a Chris McDonald freekick, only to be denied a point by a goal with the last kick of the game.
Hopefully another cracking encounter is in store as we hope you can join us to cheer on the lads as they look to bring home 3 points back to North Tyneside.
