Easington should have an FA Cup spot in the bag for next season, but sixth place is a possibility.

Easington Colliery play their final game of the season at Crook Town on Saturday afternoon with the Colliers looking to end the season on a high.

In a season which could have seen the Colliers contend for promotion, a poor run of form in the winter months wiped away any chance of promotion but manager Paul Frame is determined his side will finish the season with a win.

“We managed to eventually get past Brandon last week and I’m expecting a similar test at Crook on Saturday,” said Frame.

“We want to finish well and we want to go to Crook and bring home the points.”

Crook Town currently sit 17th in Northern League Division Two, ten places and 32 points behind the Colliers.

Easington are almost guaranteed a spot in next year’s FA Cup but still have the aim of finishing sixth.

South Tyneside side Whickham currently sit sixth, but the difference between Whickham and Easington Colliery is only down to goal difference.

Whickham face Darlington RA in their final game but should they drop points, the Colliers will be looking to ensure sixth place.

Frame added: “We know a few of the lads at Darlington RA and we wouldn’t mind if they took a point or three from Whickham. Obviously, there isn’t a great deal between finishing sixth or seventh but we want to finish as high as we can.”

Kick-off on Saturday afternoon at The Sir Tom Cowie Millfield is at 15:00.
