The Northumberland derby between Alnwick Town and Morpeth Town will kick-off at 11am on Monday.

Officials from the St James’ Park side had been trying to change the time and possibly the date of the Bank Holiday Ebac Northern League Division Two fixture.

A number of Alnwick players work in Scotland, which does not have a Bank Holiday on Monday, meaning that they would be unavailable for the clash.

It was hoped that the match could be rescheduled but this has not been possible.

The game is being held at Alnwick.
