Whitley Bay draw Northwich Manchester Vill in FA Vase

Whitley Bay will be making a journey into the unknown in the first round of the FA Vase.

They have been drawn away to North West Counties League division one side Northwich Manchester Villa.

Their league is one step below the Northern League first division so Whitley are likely to go into the game as favourites.

The tie will be played in Manchester on Saturday, October 31, and it will be the first time the sides have met.

Further details of transport arrangements for supporters will be released in due course.
