Morpeth Town will fly the flag on behalf of the Northern League in the FA Vase when they play the first leg of the semi-final tie in Essex against Bowers and Pitsea tomorrow.
Manager Nick Gray has watched his opponents and reckons if his team match the hosts’ work-rate, they will be in with a chance when the second leg takes place next week.
Gray said: “What we have got to make sure is that we are not adrift after tomorrow. This is the biggest game in the club’s history with a place in the final at Wembley at stake. What an incentive that is.”
