Visit to Blyth Town to conclude Whitley Bay pre-season

Whitley Bay complete their pre-season programme of friendly fixtures on Friday evening when they travel to South Newsham Playing Fields to take on Northern Alliance champions Blyth Town.

This will be the first time the sides have met, although Whitley’s reserve side are fellow members of the Northern Alliance premier division and have played Blyth Town on a number of occasions.

Following this game, Whitley will have just over a week to prepare for their first Ebac Northern League fixture of the new season, which will be a home game against Consett on Saturday, August 9.
