At Castle Square, two businesses have helped to add colour in unattractive areas to show their support for Morpeth Town FC ahead of the FA Vase final.

Abdul Muhit of Morpeth Tandoori arranged for a banner in support of the team on the fencing outside Morpeth Court House.

He said: “I felt that a banner would be a good way to back the team and it looks very good – I wasn’t expecting it to be so big.

“It’s important for businesses to get involved when the team does something amazing like this and it was nice of the players to come into the shop on Friday during their get together in Morpeth and thank me for my support.”

The huge banner outside the former Benfield Renault site was arranged by MGM Precision Engineering.

CEO Stan Miller said: “I’ve always supported local football and what Ken Beattie and his team have achieved this year is nothing short of miraculous.

“I really do believe they can bring the FA Vase back to Morpeth.”

Meanwhile, The Office pub near the Telford Bridge has produced a golden citrus hoppy ale for the occasion.

Morpeth Pride, at 4.1 per cent, will also be available at the Shambles, Joiners Arms, Conservative Club and the Plough Inn, Mitford, and a volume of the ale will be taken down to the Morpeth Arms near Westminster in London for the weekend.
