Shields to face Marine in FA Trophy
South Shields face a trip to Marine in the third qualifying round of the Buildbase FA Trophy.
The tie will be held at The Marine Travel Arena on Saturday, October 30th, and will be Shields’ first match in this season’s competition.
The Mariners will be up against cup specialists in Marine, who famously reached the third round of the Emirates FA Cup last season and took on the might of Tottenham Hotspur in front of the BBC cameras.
They also remain in this campaign’s FA Cup, and will take on Wrexham at home this Saturday for a place in the first round.
Marine have started well in the Pitching In Northern Premier League West Division, and are fifth in the table with 21 points from their opening nine matches. They have games in hand on all of those above them and have won all three of their home fixtures in the league.
Further details about the tie – including admission information – will be released as soon as they are available.
