2021-22 Pitching In Northern Premier League fixtures released

South Shields will host Mickleover on the opening day of the Pitching In Northern Premier League season for the second year running after the fixtures for the 2021-22 campaign were released.

Mickleover will visit 1st Cloud Arena on Saturday, August 14th in a repeat of last season’s opening match, which the Mariners won 3-0.

That game will be followed by trips to Stalybridge Celtic and Witton Albion before FC United come to South Tyneside on Tuesday, August 24th.

Many Shields supporters’ eyes will be immediately drawn to the August Bank Holiday match away to Scarborough Athletic and a home meeting with North East neighbours Morpeth Town on Tuesday, October 12th.

The traditional Christmas fixtures pit the Mariners against Whitby Town (away) on Monday, December 27th and at home to Scarborough on New Year’s Day.

Much-anticipated visits to Morpeth and FC United are pencilled in for Tuesday, February 8th and Saturday, April 16th respectively, with Shields due to end their campaign with a Bank Holiday home match against Whitby on Monday, April 18th and a journey to Grantham Town five days later.

The full fixture list can be viewed in the graphic below, although supporters are advised that all dates are subject to change.
