Morpeth game postponed – but Shields to play friendly this afternoon

Saturday’s FA Vase tie between South Shields and Morpeth Town has been postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.

A pitch inspection took place at Mariners Park at 10am, and the surface was deemed unplayable.

The match has now been rearranged for Tuesday, January 12.

Following the postponement, the Mariners will now take on Ebac Northern League Division One side West Allotment Celtic in a friendly on Saturday afternoon.

It will take place at Harton Technology College, on Lisle Road, South Shields, with a 2.15pm kick-off. Support would be welcome at the game.
