Mariners to travel to Marske United in FA Cup

South Shields have been drawn away to Marske United in the second qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The trip to Teesside is scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 18th.

Shields progressed to this stage of the competition with a 3-1 win at Marske’s Pitching In Northern Premier League East rivals Shildon on Saturday.

Marske, meanwhile, were 6-0 winners over Seaham Red Star at their Mount Pleasant home as they continued their impressive start to the season, having won three and lost one of their four league games so far.

Shields and Marske last met in pre-season, with the Teesside outfit winning by the odd goal in five after an entertaining encounter.
