Tomorrow we welcome neighbours West Allotment Celtic to the Daren Persson Stadium in the Northumberland Senior Cup with a place in the quarter final the rewards for the victors.

With Saturday’s hard fought team performance still fresh in the minds, playing 60 minutes with 10 men, Dan and his team will be looking for a similar performance and book a place in the next round as they will look to improve on last year’s Quarter final exit to the hands Blyth Spartans.

Our opponents, who will also  be looking to book a place in the next round and have no other than Callum Larmouth amongst their ranks, who helped the Robins to a 7th place finish last season in the Northern Premier League East Division, scorer of a couple of notable efforts as he pushed Regan Paterson close for goal of the season.

We hope that you can join us to cheer on the lads. If you are not able to join us, updates will be available via social media @northshieldsfc
