BIRTLEY AND WASHINGTON GAMES – URGENT UPDATE

Following discussions between Birtley Town and Gateshead Council, tonight’s second division game between Birtley Town and Chester-le-Street will be played behind closed doors, with no spectators allowed in.

And following a decision by the Ford Hub Sports Complex in Sunderland that it cannot be used for competititve games, tomorrow’s game between Washington and Easington Colliery has been postponed and will be re-arranged.

We will update the situation regarding the Sunderland West End v Redcar Athletic fixture at the hub scheduled for Wedneday as soon as we can.

Both of these situations are beyond our control but we’re sorry for any inconvenience caused.
