Shields travel to play Darlington RA on Tuesday evening, October 15th, kick off at 7.30pm in an Ebac Northern League Div 2 fixture.

With now 15 points on the board, at the half way stage possibly to what is usually considered to be a relegation safe total, time will tell of course.

Three valuable points as ever at stake with which to help climb to mid table, following the great disappointment of the loss of two points last Saturday, very late in the game and to most people’s minds in time added on that did not exist, however a red card and a crucial missed penalty did not help matters.

Possibly one or more new players may be featured in the game, no definite details yet to hand.
