Whitley Bay have been handed a potential home draw in the next round of the FA Cup.

They face a first qualifying round replay against Matlock Town on Tuesday night at Hillheads, with the winners facing North West Counties League side Congleton Town.

Whitley Bay played Congleton only last season, winning an FA Vase second round tie in Cheshire 1-0.

If Bay get through, it will see the Chesire side making a quick return to the north east.

On Saturday they knocked Jarrow Roofing out of the competition.

Whitley Bay’s Tuesday night replay against Derbyshire side Matlock kicks-off at 7.45pm.
