The Mariners welcome Birtley Town to the Eden Lane Stadium on Tuesday, September 10th, for an Ebac Northern League Division 2 encounter.

Following their first league win of the season, Shields will be keen to give a good account of themselves against the highly rated side well managed by Paul Bryson, regarded as Gateshead FC’s second X1 from talent assembled in the main from the Gateshead College, so an entertaining game is in  prospect.
