Ahead of travelling to the Far East for the Citibank Hong Kong Football Club International Soccer Sevens next week, Newcastle United will provide the opposition in Consett's final match at Belle Vue Park on Wednesday night.
The Northern League side are leaving their home for the last 63 years ahead of a move to a multi-million-pound purpose-built community stadium next season and the Magpies have agreed to send a team to Derwentside for a 7pm kick-off to say farewell to the old ground and raise funds for the new one.
United's competitive campaign ended with a play-off penalty shoot-out defeat at Everton following a 3-3 draw last week, and for those not heading to Hong Kong this will be a final match of the season.
Tickets for the showpiece match are £5 for adults, £3 for OAPs and £1 for under-16s, and will be available on the turnstiles while there will also be a special programme produced for the match.
The squad is: Rolando Aarons, Romain Amalfitano, Gael Bigirimana, Macaulay Gillesphey, Alex Gilliead, Bradden Inman, Steven Logan, Brandon Miele, Jonathan Mitchell, Greg Olley, Jonathyn Quinn, Michael Richardson, Jamie Sterry, Remie Streete, James Tavernier.
