South Shields’ FA Youth Cup second round tie against Hartlepool United has been confirmed for Friday, November 15 (7pm kick-off).

The match will take place at Mariners Park with admission prices set at £3 for adults and £1 for concessions.

The young Mariners have enjoyed a tremendous season in the competition so far, beating Gateshead, Carlisle City, North Shields, Harrogate Town and Morecambe on their road to the first round.

They are now at the same stage they reached last season, when they enjoyed their best-ever run in the competition before a gallant defeat at Lincoln City.

The draw for the third round takes place this Friday.
