So, tonight is our last chance in Cup competitions this season. Been a funny Cup year, starting with a great win in a Ryhope derby in the FA Cup, the first ever FA Cup meeting between the clubs as far as anybody knows, and followed by that astonishing match down at Clitheroe, 6-6, not a common scoreline. If it had gone to extra time there is little doubt we would have won it, well on top and playing nine men, but even so I doubt if anybody expected us to lose the replay with a much stronger side out. There you go though.

The Vase was a roller coaster, tight game against our old foes from Bridlington and then a super day out at Garstang, one of the best of the many good trips we have had in recent seasons, or so I am informed, and followed by a cracker of a match down at Shildon. Then West Auckland.

What a team we have at the minute. Form, confidence and goal scoring all looking good, solid defence, dominant midfield, good chances being created and decent finishes. What could possibly go wrong? Well, we all know the answer to that, football can knock you down as quick as build you up, so we need to watch out for getting cocky, but to be fair the performances at the minute are all first class. Hard work, application and good skills on show, and the results are following.
