A place in round three of the Northumberland FA Sunday Minor Cup is up-for-grabs and the two Hexham and District Sunday League are determined to make it past the second round.

Ryton and Crawcrook Albion, meanwhile, are also in county cup action and are bidding to progress past the first round of the Durham Sunday Cup at the expense of hosts Hartlepool Throston.
In league action, Haltwhistle Conservatives will be looking for an immediate response after their 3-2 reversal to Allendale when they entertain Hexham Phoenix.
League leaders Stocksfield will be looking to build on any advantage, and they make the trip to the North Tyne to face bottom club Rose and Crown Bellingham
In the division's only other game, Prudhoe Town welcome Allendale to Kimberly Park.
Second bottom Acomb Welfare will become the latest team to try to stand in the way of Division Two leaders Prudhoe Social Club who are still to drop a point after 10 games.
Second placed Bardon Mill cannot afford to lose any further ground on their rivals but have a tough game scheduled as they visit Dr Syntax Prudhoe.
Haydon Bridge Anchor are at home to bottom side Swinburne Arms Stamfordham, and Hexham Hearts welcome Phoenix Chopwell.
