Dutch fans set for Shields return

Dutch fans set for Shields return

An enthusiastic set of Dutch supporters are set to be welcomed back to 1st Cloud Arena on Saturday. 

Nine Feyenoord fans attended our memorable fixture against FC United of Manchester in March 2020 which resulted in a 5-3 win for the Mariners in front of an incredible crowd of 3,276.

They were due to watch Newcastle United’s match against Sheffield United the same day but switched their attentions to South Tyneside after the Premier League game was postponed.

The group joined several friends – including two 1st Cloud Arena regulars – for the game and saw their visit featured by several media outlets, including BBC Radio 5 Live.

Their day was completed with drinks and karaoke in the town centre followed by a curry on Ocean Road, ensuring they enjoyed the full South Shields experience.

They loved it so much that they have decided to return for Saturday’s match against Bamber Bridge to meet up with their friends again and repeat the matchday experience at SSFC.

Here’s hoping it’s marked by a similar result!
