Marske United to visit Mariners Park in FA Vase second round

South Shields have been drawn to host Marske United in the second round of the Buildbase FA Vase.

The Mariners defeated Runcorn Linnets 2-1 in a dramatic first round tie on Saturday, with Robert Briggs netting the winner in second half stoppage time.

They are certain to be given another stern test of their credentials against Marske, who are the only team to beat Shields so far this season.

Marske are seventh in Northern League Division One, with 28 points from 16 games.

The second round tie is set to be played on Saturday, November 12 at Mariners Park.
