HAZLERIGG’S CUP RUN began with an 8-1 win over the North Northumberland League’s Embleton Whinstone Rovers in the Second Round and they beat Forest Hall YPC 4-1 in Round Three – a game that gave manager Mark Bullock some satisfaction.

“Personally, I quite enjoyed the win against Forest Hall because I know their gaffers well. But it’s tough to say if there’s been a standout moment this time; there was a trip to Amble in the last sixteen and it is quality getting a good day out in this competition. We’ve had a number of home draws this year and the atmosphere with all the lads in the Bluebell Inn after the game was first class,” he said.

The ‘Rigg won 8-2 in that game at Amble Saint Cuthberts and were 2-1 winners over Red Row Welfare in the quarterfinals before romping to a 6-1 win over Heaton Stannington A in the semis.

“From an on the pitching perspective, that performance was the most complete we’ve been this season - we blew Heaton Stan A away,” said Bullock. “We’re not exactly 100% sure how we’ll prepare for #The Final this season yet, but the night before any Cup Final we get the squad together and it’ll definitely involve food.”

Something hot and spicy, maybe - just to add a bit of heat to an already eagerly-anticipated and mouth-watering Friday night Final.

The #Northumberland Fa Minor Cup Final takes place on Friday 28th April 2017 at the Northumberland FA’s Blue Flames ground. Kick-off 7.30pm. Entry is £4.50 and £2.50 for concessions.
