Once again, there’s no Newcastle United this weekend but there is still loads of great non-league football to give you an excuse to get the flannel across your mush, change your underwear and go and talk shite with your mates with a match going on somewhere in the background.
The region’s top non-league side, Gateshead is at home at the International Stadium today and they face Macclesfield in the National League. KO is at 3pm.
On Easter Saturday there is a really excellent selection of matches in the Northern League and the games below have caught our eye as ones you might be interested in:
Dunston v Guisbrough Town
North Shields v Ashington
Heaton Stann v Ryhope CW
South Shields v Birtley Town.
All those games KO at 3pm.
On Easter Monday with a 12 noon KO is the Coastico derby between friendly rivals Whitley Bay and North Shields. This game has all the hallmarks of the River Plate – Boca Juniors fixture and isn’t to be missed.
A little while later at 1pm, another derby in Northumberland is Bedlington Terriers v Morpeth Town and I’m sure that will be a finely contested affair between two proud clubs. Best of luck to Morpeth in the FA Vase Final at Wembley by the way. Keep it Geordie lads.
Blyth Spartans will be keen to re-establish their invincibility at the top of the Evo-Stik League and they will be action at Croft Park on Monday 28/Mar/16 when they face former Football League club Workington. The Northumbrians will face the Cumbrians at 3pm Easter Monday.

Of course you could decide to sit in the house and eat your own body-weight in chocolate whilst reading Newcastle United’s longest-running and most popular fanzine, true faith (Issue 124). true faith is the most widely read independent, fans’-led publication in the UK and it is also absolutely and completely FREE. true faith has been on the go since 1999 and whilst we’ve added loads of bells and whistles and various content since we moved to an exclusively digital format, it is still essentially the same gobshite fanzine its always been. It is written by Newcastle United supporters for Newcastle United supporters. Our readers are increasingly reading true faith on smart-phones and tablets though plenty manage perfectly fine on lap-tops and PCs. I must confess, my preference is to read it on a tablet. Whichever way you read it though, just read it.
