10 May 24

The Newcastle Flooring (Northumberland) Senior Cup final between Newcastle United Under-21s and Blyth Town will be hosted at St. James' Park on Tuesday, 14th May (kick-off 7.30pm BST)

The Northumberland FA has confirmed that a pay-at-the-gate system will be in operation on the evening, with tickets priced at £8 for adults, £4 for concessions and £2 for under-18s. Supporters will be granted access to the East Stand at St. James' Park via turnstiles 39-47.

Established in 1884, this season marks the 140th anniversary of the Newcastle Flooring Senior Cup. Newcastle United's academy side are bidding to lift the historic trophy for the first time since 2018, having last reached the final two years ago - suffering a narrow 3-2 defeat to Blyth Spartans.

Ben Dawson's under-21 side booked their place in this year's final after defeating Ashington 2-1 at the semi-final stage, following on from impressive victories against Bedlington Terriers and Newcastle Blue Star in previous rounds.

The reward for the young Magpies is a cup final clash against Northern League Division One outfit Blyth Town, who overcame Newcastle Benfield on penalties to reach the Northumberland FA's showpiece event at St. James' Park.
