Date confirmed for FA Youth Cup first round tie

South Shields’ FA Youth Cup first round tie against Morecambe has been confirmed for Wednesday, October 30 (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 and Harrogate Town on their road to the first round.

One more win would see them equal their best-ever run in the FA Youth Cup, which was achieved last season when they reached the second round before losing at Lincoln City.

As a result of this fixture being arranged, the club’s trip to Scarborough Athletic in the National League Under-19 Alliance – which had been due to be held on the same day – has been postponed.
