League Cup final for Under-16s

South Shields’ Under-16s are set to play in the League Cup final on Sunday.

They are looking for their second cup triumph of the season, after winning the County Cup earlier this month.

Consett are the Mariners’ opponents on Sunday at the Russell Foster Centre, Newbottle, Houghton-Le-Spring, DH4 4WL.

Kick-off is at 10.30am and all support for the team would be much appreciated.

Shields took on Consett on Sunday in the league, and won 3-0 away from home.

They have been awarded the game tonight against Silksworth, as the opponents are unable to field a team.

Shields, therefore, have been given a 1-0 victory, so now need just eight points from their remaining five games to clinch the league title for the sixth year running.
