Date set for young Mariners’ FA Youth Cup meeting with North Shields

South Shields Under-18s’ FA Youth Cup second qualifying round match with North Shields will take place on Monday, September 30.

The eagerly anticipated River Tyne derby will be held at Mariners Park, with kick-off set to be at 7.30pm.

The young Mariners reached this stage of the competition with two impressive victories, first beating Gateshead 3-2 at the International Stadium before an excellent 10-0 win at Carlisle City in the first qualifying round.

They are now set to take to the field at Mariners Park for the first time this season and support would be hugely appreciated.

Admission prices on the night will be £3 for adults and £1 for concessions.

South Shields enjoyed superb support in last season’s competition as they made it all the way to the second round before losing to Lincoln City at Sincil Bank.

Gateshead, Spennymoor Town, Chorley and Macclesfield Town were among the teams they defeated on a stunning run in the cup which captured the imagination.
