We are delighted to announce that the The Stephen Carey Memorial Cup, a new pre-season fixture for the North Northumberland League, has been ratified by the Football Association and will take place prior on Friday 30th August.
The fixture will see the League Champions face the winners of the Bilclough Cup at a St James’ Park, Alnwick and will be contested only by teams who will play within the North Northumberland League for the forthcoming season. Therefore should a team who was either the league champions or winners of the Bilclough Cup no longer be registered then the runners up will take their place.
This season that means the fixture will be contested by Red Row Welfare who for much of the season hung on the coat tails of Newbiggin AFC in Division 1 and Shilbottle CW who beat Tweedmouth Rangers to secure the Bilclough Cup.
Kick off at St. James’ Park will be at 6:30pm with the gates opening circa 5:30pm, prices on the gates will be £2 for adults and £1 for concessions with all proceed being split evenly between The Stephen Carey Fund and FA Benevolent Fund.
Main sponsors for the match are Alnmouth Ex-Servicemen’s Club & Institute.
