On Saturday the 8th February at 3 pm Consett will be at home for the very first time in the 5th round (last16) of the FA Vase.
We have been in the 5th round back in 2008 when we were away to Merstham when we lost 5 v 4. Our opponents in Feb will be either Deal Town or Binfield FC.
Both are good teams as you would expect in the last 16 of a national competition but we certainly have a quality team capable of beating anyone at the moment with us being unbeaten in the last 18 matches. The final for the FA Vase is at Wembley on Sunday 17th May, get those fingers crossed.
We are also running soccerscillz at the club on a Tuesday and Thursday evenings between 4.30 pm and 6pm for children 4 years old up to 12 years old. They are coached in age groups and if they wish to progress into teams we help facilitate this for both boys and girls.
Our BTEC programme which we are running in partnership with Newcastle United and Newcastle college for our 18 to 18 years olds is into its second year with over 70 students on the 2 year course. We will be taking in a new intake for this autumn so any interested children can contact the club or NUFC.
This years music festival will take place at the club on Friday to Sunday, the 5th, 6th and 7th June. lets hope for some sunny weather.
The club has lots more activities running during the year and we will keep you updated next month with hopefully fixtures for the FA Vase Semi-Final.
