Ashton United vs South Shields

South Shields return to action with a trip to Ashton United on Tuesday as they battle for a place in the second round of the Buildbase FA Trophy.

The Mariners have not played since the Emirates FA Cup defeat at Cheltenham Town on November 7th as a result of the national lockdown and subsequent tier restrictions.

Shields travel to Hurst Cross hoping to reach the second round of this competition for the first time in the club’s history.
