Whitley Bay complete their season with four games in eight days.

There are bound to be tired legs among the players after a hectic final two months when they have had to play three games a week.

Following their visit to Newton Aycliffe on Tuesday evening (May 3), Ian Chandler’s side finish with three games on home soil.

Thursday evening sees Jarrow Roofing at Hillheads, when former Bay legend Paul Chow, now back on South Tyneside at his home town club, is bound to receive a warm welcome from the home fans.

On Saturday, Durham City, who were managed by Chandler earlier in the season and now with former Bay midfielder Chris Moore in charge, are the visitors in a game where as many as eight players could be up against former teammates.

By the time the game is played, Durham could be relegated after what has been a difficult season for them.

Whitley complete their campaign at home to Consett on Tuesday, May 10, a day later than originally scheduled.
