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.
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.
