Coach to Consett: Secure your place now for first league game

Coach to Consett: Secure your place now for first league game

Seats on a supporters’ coach to Saturday’s opening Northern League Division One game of the season at Consett are available.

An estimated 300 South Shields fans made the trip to Marske United for the Mariners’ first match of the campaign in the FA Cup on Saturday.

The club would truly appreciate a similar following again this weekend as Shields look to get some early points on the board from what is sure to be a testing fixture.

Consett are one of the Northern League’s best-supported clubs, and at least 350 home supporters will be expected on Saturday.

A large away following would surely create a fantastic atmosphere as Shields go up against a side which kicked-off their league campaign with a 7-0 victory over Ashington on Tuesday.

Shields made three trips to Belle View last season, with two victories over Consett in cup competitions, and a defeat on penalties to Morpeth Town in the FA Vase.

Seats on the supporters’ coach cost £7 for those in the SSFC Members’ Club, and £10 for non-members. Payments must be made in advance of Saturday, either in person at Mariners Park or by card over the phone by calling 0191 454 7800.

Thank you for your continued magnificent support.
