Birtley Preview

South Shields will hope to finally get their Ernest Armstrong Memorial Cup quarter-final played on Wednesday when they travel to Birtley Town.

The fixture has already been postponed twice due to the weather.

Shields have not played since an impressive 2-1 win at Darlington RA on January 17, so are eager to get back on the pitch.

The Mariners will be without David Molloy, who has an ankle injury, but are hopeful of welcoming back Craig Roberts from a hamstring injury for the 7.30pm kick-off at Birtley Sports Complex. Postcode: DH3 2TB.
