Whickham didn’t have a game at the weekend, but return to action when they take on Silksworth CW in the Durham Challenge Cup Preliminary Round.

After their early exit from both national competitions, the Lang Jacks will be aiming to have a good run both in the DCC and also the Northern League Cup.

Manager Robin Falcus takes his side to Silksworth Welfare Park off the back of a 2-1 win over Bishop Auckland in the League Cup and the team will be full of confidence going into the match.
