2020-21 Northern Premier League fixtures released

South Shields will kick-off their 2020-21 Northern Premier League campaign with a home game against Mickleover on Saturday, September 19.

It will be the first competitive match played at 1st Cloud Arena since March and supporters will be hoping for a fixture just as entertaining as the most recent meeting between the sides, which Shields won 5-2 in January.

Shields’ second match of the season will be an Emirates FA Cup first qualifying round tie in the midweek which immediately follows the Mickleover game, followed by league trips to Hyde United and Ashton United which will complete the Mariners’ September schedule.

Morpeth Town and FC United of Manchester are both due to visit 1st Cloud Arena in October, while the festive programme will see Shields host Whitby Town on Boxing Day and travel to Scarborough Athletic on New Year’s Day.

Other fixtures of note include league trips to FC United on Saturday, February 6 and Morpeth on Saturday, February 20, with Shields’ final home game due to be against Scarborough on Monday, May 3, with their season to be completed with a trip to Radcliffe five days later.

Please see the below graphic for the full list of games. Be aware though that all fixtures are subject to change.
