On Saturday they faced Durham United away from home, a game which ended in a 1-1 draw.

The game was played in very warm conditions and there was a drinks break in each half.

Durham took the lead after 36 minutes but Whitley pressure after the break eventually led to a late equaliser when Michael Annang-Colquhoun converted a cross from Lee Kerr.

On Tuesday Whitley met Ellington at home when they turned in another comprehensive performance, winning 7-0.

On Saturday, Marske United will provide the opposition with a 3pm kick-off.
