Newton Aycliffe FC have been drawn at home to Seaham Red Star in the Quarter Final of the Durham Challenge Cup. The tie will take place at Moore Lane on Tuesday 31st January with a kick off at 7:30pm. Aycliffe have so far beaten Bishop Auckland and Brandon in their defence of the County’s premier cup competition.

That match will be the next game at Moore Lane with a league game away at Washington lined up for Saturday 21st January with no game scheduled for the following Saturday. Aycliffe had been due to play Seaham Red Star in a league game last week. However the snow and hard frost left the Moore Lane pitch frozen solid giving the Match Referee no option but to call the game off when he inspected on Saturday morning. All other games in the Ebac Northern League Division One suffered the same fate.
