Wade excited by Blyth's FA Cup test

Manager Tom Wade tells BBC Look North his Blyth Spartans side is excited and ready to take on Hartlepool United in the FA Cup second round at Victoria Park on Friday.

Spartans have made it through four rounds to reach the second phase proper, and a further win would bring the possibility of a Premier League or Championship club in the third round.

With both towns situated on the coast, and in the north east, there are bragging rights also to be had for the victors.
