Amble’s Nathan Buddle and his Blyth Spartans teammates will face Birmingham City in the FA Cup Third Round.
The Northern Premier League side have every chance of causing a shock when they host the lowly Championship outfit. The David versus Goliath tie is scheduled for the first weekend in January.
Blyth are no strangers to cup shocks, having knocked out Hartlepool United, of League Two, in last Friday’s Second Round clash.
Defender Buddle, 21, played in the 2-1 victory against former club Pools. His FA Cup journey started in September when Blyth knocked out Darlington 1883 in the First Qualifying Round.
The draw for the Third Round was made this evening.
