Blyth Spartans provide Mariners’ second pre-season test

South Shields travel to Blyth Spartans on Tuesday as they continue their pre-season preparations with their second friendly.

The match will kick-off at 7.30pm at Croft Park as the Mariners pit their wits against National League North opposition.

Kevin Phillips’ side won 1-0 at Berwick Rangers on Saturday in their first pre-season outing, with Will McGowan netting the only goal early in the second half.

As he did on that occasion, Phillips is expected to name a different XI in each half on Tuesday.

General admission prices at Croft Park – which has a post code of NE24 3JE – are £6 for adults, £4 for over-65s, those aged 11 to 16 and students, and free for Under-10s.

Cash turnstiles will be in operation but Spartans are advising supporters to purchase tickets in advance, particularly those who would like a seat. To purchase a ticket, click here.

Blyth finished 19th in National League North last season and are under the management of Terry Mitchell.
