New away kit to be launched during free night of entertainment at Mariners Park
A special free night of entertainment will be held at Mariners Park as the club welcomes in the new season.
The club’s new away kit will be launched, while there will be an opportunity for supporters to take part in a question and answer session with South Shields players and staff.
It will also double up as a casino night, with the event taking place on Friday, July 29.
Part of the night will be the unveiling of the new away kit, which comes after schoolchildren across South Tyneside were invited to send in their designs.
A lucky winner has been chosen after well over 160 entries came in, and they will find out on the night at Mariners Park. Their name will be printed on every shirt.
Alisha Henry, South Shields FC’s commercial and events manager, said: “We were delighted with how many entries came in, and it was really difficult to choose a winner.
“However, we narrowed it down and eventually agreed on one, which we’re really looking forward to unveil.
“It would be great to see many of our supporters at Mariners Park for this event, which will also be a curtain-raiser to the season.
“Fans will get their chance to put questions to players and staff and talk about everything which has happened this summer, including the players who have been brought in and the changes made at the ground.”
There will also be food and live music, and it is free to attend. It starts at 7pm. Although it is a free event, if you plan to attend, please call us on 0191 454 7800 so we can add your name to the list.
