Bay at home to Bedlington in Senior Cup

WHITLEY Bay have been drawn at home to Bedlington Terriers in the semi-final of the Northumberland Senior Cup.

The draw, made at the weekend, pairs together the two sides that created upsets in the previous round.

Whitley defeated higher ranked Blyth Spartans 2-0 at Hillheads after the first game at Croft Park ended goal less, while the Terriers pulled off a surprise 3-2 victory over holders Newcastle United Reserves.

The sides have already met twice at Hillheads this season.

On successive Saturdays in August, Bedlington won 3-0 in the FA Cup but Whitley turned the tables seven days later with a 1-0 league success.

In the other semi-final, North Shields will be at home to Ashington.

The ties are to be played before March 23.
