Pitch inspection planned


Tomorrow’s South Tyneside derby between Jarrow Roofing and South Shields is still due to go ahead after the pitch passed an initial inspection.

A further inspection will take place at 1pm tomorrow to decide whether the Northern League Division Two fixture will be on.

The game had looked likely to be called off earlier in the week, but Roofing have worked hard on the surface and are hopeful it will go ahead.

If there is overnight rain, the pitch inspection at the Boldon CA Sports Ground will be brought forward to the morning.
