Hebburn Week – Daniel Regan

Hebburn Town are approaching their final few days of preparation before they meet north-east neighbours, and non-league high-flyers, Gateshead in the FA Cup on Saturday. Andy Hudson talks to Hebburn Town keeper Dan Regan.

The Northern League marches on in the FA Cup. The intrepid Andy Hudson returns ‘home’ from football trips to Sweden and Scotland to see Hebburn upset Linnets.
