WITH the first leg of the FA Carlsberg Vase semi final ending in a narrow victory for Whitley Bay the tie is perfectly poised for a thrilling second leg tomorrow in front of a sell out Crown Meadow capacity crowd.

Preparations this week have gone well with the Blues training at Norwich City's Colney training ground whilst the club officials coped with the organisation of the big day.

The weather forecast too is favourable and there should be no repeat of the snow and strong winds that faced Whitley Bay last year.

Whatever the outcome tomorrow it is back to the more mundane fare of the Ridgeons League on Tuesday with a visit to Tiptree United.

The Blues need another 12 points from their eight remaining games to clinch the Ridgeons League title.

The Reserves picked up six points this week with home victories over Dereham Town Reserves (4-1) and Debenham Leisure Centre Reserves (5-0).

They too are in line to clinch the North Division title needing just another four points from their six remaining games. They may go a long way towards that target tonight when they are due to visit Diss Town Reserves in a game brought forward.

They are back at the Meadow on Tuesday evening when Thetford Town Reserves are the visitors.

Their goals against Dereham were scored by Danny Mitchell (2), Gary Williams and Craig Lewis. Mitchell also hit a brace against Debenham LC with Williams also hitting two and Jack Herbert one.

The Youth team strolled to a 5-1 victory over Harford Tornadoes on Monday evening with Joe Marsden starring with a hat trick, the other goals came from Danny Scriven and Sam Raven.

They were due to entertain Wroxham Youth last Wednesday and face another double header next week with North Walsham Town Youth the visitors on Monday before the long trek up to Cromer Town youths on Thursday.

With the return Ridgeons League local derby just over a week away, advance tickets can now be purchased.

They are expected to be available at the Crown Meadow from tomorrow with other outlets being the Journal Office in London Road North and Walmer Road.

Kick off on Easter Monday is at noon.
