Two of the region’s clubs are hoping to move within touching distance of a trip to Wembley this weekend.
While we head up the A19 for the Tees-Wear derby, Ebac Northern League duo Stockton Town and Marske United will be looking to win their respective FA Vase quarter-final ties.
Stockton are flying the flag on Teesside and they are at home to Hellenic League side Windsor (3pm). The Anchors are hoping for another record attendance at their Bishopton Road West home for what will be the biggest afternoon in the club’s history.
Marske’s quest to reach the semi-finals sees them hit the road and they head to Bracknell Town. The Marske squad will include Pete Bulmer, who works on player analysis at Boro during the week.
We’d like to wish both clubs the very best of luck this weekend.
