FA Vase tie with Morpeth to be played at Consett on Friday

The FA Vase tie between South Shields and Morpeth Town has been rescheduled for this Friday at Consett’s Belle View ground.

All efforts were made to ensure the tie could take place at Mariners Park, but due to the continued rainfall and the weather forecast, the decision has been made to switch the game to Consett’s 3G surface.

The match will kick-off at 7.45pm on Friday, meaning the earlier planned game on Thursday has now been cancelled. The league match between Shields and Willington – scheduled for Saturday – has also been postponed.

The match against Morpeth represents the Mariners’ biggest of the season so far, and all support at the game would be greatly appreciated.

The club is to run a supporters’ coach to the match, costing £7 per person. It will depart Mariners Park at 6pm on Friday.

To book a place on the coach, please call 0191 454 7800 between 10am and 4.30pm, or drop in to Mariners Park.

For those looking to travel by car, the post code is DH8 7BF.

The club would like to sincerely thank Consett AFC for hosting Friday’s match.
