Shields to host Bridlington Town in FA Cup preliminary round

South Shields will play host to Bridlington Town in the preliminary round of the FA Cup.

The Seasiders defeated Northern League Division One side Billingham Synthonia 2-0 on Saturday to book their place in the next round.

Managed by former professional footballer and boxer Curtis Woodhouse, Bridlington finished third in the Northern Counties East Football League Premier Division – behind Cleethorpes Town and Pickering Town.

They will visit Mariners Park on Saturday, August 19, for what will be Shields’ first Saturday home game of the season.
