Friday night festive football as Consett’s trip to Whickham is brought forward

Consett fans will be free to go present shopping on the last Saturday before Christmas, after our league game at Whickham was brought forward.

Originally due to take place on Saturday 25 January 2020, it was rescheduled for Saturday 21 December, and will now be the previous night, Friday 20 December, kick-off 7.30pm.

Our last visit to the Glebe on 12 January this year was a stormy affair which ended in a 2-2 draw, with Darren Holden and then-manager Chris Moore shown red cards.

Our home league game against Newcastle Benfield, which was due to be on Saturday 30 November, has been postponed due to both clubs’ FA Vase commitments, and will now take place on Saturday 28 December, KO 3pm.
