Darlington 1883 to complete Whitley Bay pre-season programme

Whitley Bay complete their programme of pre-season friendlies next Tuesday evening with a game at Hillheads against Darlington 1883.

The Northern League champions, now promoted to the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League, include former Bay favourite Paul Robinson, who signed for the Quakers in May after playing almost 300 games for Whitley Bay.

He is assured of a warm welcome in what will undoubtedly be a tough game for Whitley.

The game kicks off at 7.30pm.

Saturday’s friendly at home to Blyth Spartans ended in a disappointing 3-0 defeat with two former Bay players, Lee Mason and Robbie Dale, among the Blyth scorers.
