Bay looking for third win over Vase winners

WHITLEY BAY will be aiming to complete a hat-trick of victories against former FA Vase winners when they welcome AFC Fylde to Hillheads on Saturday.

Under their former name of Kirkham and Wesham, the west Lancashire side were the last team to win the Vase before Whitley began their record breaking hat-trick of wins.

They are now playing in the Evo-Stick first division.

Christie Elliott will be unavailable but Damon Robson may be back in contention following the injury he picked up at Crook.

There are two midweek friendlies next week, on Tuesday away to Durham City, who play in the same league as Fylde, and then on Thursday away to Northern League second division side Washington.

The following weekend sees a home Wearside double header, with Whitley taking on a Sunderland XI on Saturday followed by the Whitley Women taking on Sunderland Ladies on Sunday.
