Home fixture against Morpeth postponed due to frozen pitch

Saturday’s BetVictor Northern Premier Division match between South Shields and Morpeth Town has been postponed due to a frozen pitch.

An inspection was held at 11.15am at Mariners Park, with one shaded area of the pitch frozen solid, with little prospect of thawing during the day due to its position.

The referee deemed that the surface would be dangerous to the players and so the game was called off.

A rearranged date will be confirmed in due course.
