Date confirmed for FA Youth Cup tie

The FA Youth Cup first qualifying round tie between South Shields and Pickering Town will take place on Monday, September 13.

The match will be held at 1st Cloud Arena with a kick-off time of 7.30pm.

Admission prices are £3 for adults and £1 for concessions, with only a cash turnstile in operation. There will be no tickets sold in advance.

Shields received a walkover in the preliminary round after opponents Guisborough Town withdrew.

Pickering, meanwhile, overcame Penrith 4-3 in an entertaining tie to reach this stage.

The young Mariners have enjoyed some notable achievements in this competition in the past, particularly in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 campaigns, when they reached the second round and third round respectively.

Last season, Wess Brown’s side progressed to the third qualifying round before being beaten 4-2 on penalties by Altrincham.
