Durham Cup Preview

This Wednesday night see's Gatesheads first match of hopefully many in the Durham Challenge Cup this year.

The match will see the return of former goal keeper Marc Bell who left a week before the start of the season after a full pre-season with the Heed.
Hopefully the Gateshead lads can stick a few goals past Past Bell.

Gateshead Football Club had planned to make the Match Free entry but the move was blocked by the DURHAM FA, so the Admission has been dropped to £3 adults and £1 Kids/OAP's.
A bumper crowd had been expected with the free admission, but a decent cup turn out can still be on the cards.

(Pictured) could be set to stay in the starting line up after Saturdays fine performance which seen him get on the score sheet from the penalty spot. The veteran striker was in the thick of it winning headers, free-kicks and showed his experience in what was a hard thought match.

Could Davie Southern partner Thompson up front on Wednesday night? He could well do after his red card on Saturday. Southern will be missing for some massive games in the UniBond and with the Durham Cup very winnable, surely Gateshead will play a strong forward line.
