Shields drawn against Norton and Stockton in Durham Challenge Cup
South Shields face a trip to Norton and Stockton Ancients in the first round of the Durham Challenge Cup.
The tie will see the Mariners come up against a side which was relegated from Northern League Division One last season.
It is due to be played on the week preceding Saturday, October 29.
Last season, Shields reached the semi-final of the competition, when they were knocked out on penalties by eventual winners Newton Aycliffe.
