Blyth Spartans are through to the final of the Techflow Group Northumberland FA Senior Cup after a 3-2 win over Ashington.

They will face Newcastle's under-21s at St. James' Park on Tuesday, 22nd April (kick-off 7pm) in a repeat of the 2011 final.

United won 4-0 that night with James Tavernier and Michael Richardson on target alongside a Phil Airey brace. Sammy Ameobi and Remie Streete were both in the Magpies side.

Last month, Blyth and Ashington drew 2-2 and in Tuesday's replay the Colliers went in front through Andrew Johnson before Robbie Dale missed a penalty for Spartans.

Nathan Buddle equalised, though, then Ash Davis put the home side in front at Croft Park, but Glen Taylor levelled.

However, Damen Mullen's 77th minute spot-kick proved decisive with Newcastle's Football Development Manager Peter Beardsley among the 620-strong crowd.

Newcastle knocked out North Shields and Whitley Bay to reach the final.
