Cup tie postponed for Robins again

The Ernest Armstong Cup tie between North Shields FC and Hebburn Town FC has been called off today for the second time.

The match, which will see the Robins make the short journey to South Tyneside, was originally supposed to be played in late 2011 but was called off shortly before kick off due to the high winds.

This time the pitch at Hebburn is frozen and after an inspection on Tuesday afternoon at the ground, the game was called off.

Once the tie does go ahead, the winners will face a home tie against Northallerton Town in the next round.
