Following their confidence boosting victory at Durham City on Saturday, Whitley Bay now face two games in the space of four days.

Dunston UTS are the visitors to Hillheads on Saturday for the third meeting of the sides this season.

Following a narrow 1-0 success at the UTS Stadium in October, Dunston then knocked Whitley out of this season’s FA Vase with a 2-1 win at Hillheads in December.

Paddy Atkinson’s side will be hoping for a change of fortune this weekend. Kick-off is 3pm.

Then on Tuesday, March 10, Whitley Bay travel to Carlisle to take on Celtic Nation, a side struggling near the foot of the table and battling hard to get out of the relegation zone.

The game at the Gillford Park stadium has a 7.45pm kick-off.

Meanwhile the Northumberland FA Benevolent Bowl Cup Final between Whitley Bay Reserves and Wallington will be played at the NFA headquarters at Whitley Park, Benton, on Wednesday, March 25, kick-off 7pm.
