South Shields vs Morpeth Town: Game postponed

South Shields vs Morpeth Town: Game postponed

The FA Vase tie between South Shields and Morpeth Town has been postponed for a fourth time.

The relentless rainfall of recent days once again made the Mariners Park playing surface unplayable, and it failed a 10am pitch inspection ahead of Tuesday’s 7.45pm kick-off.

The game has now been rescheduled for Saturday at 3pm at Mariners Park. Should that one be postponed, it will then move to Tuesday, January 12, with the plan for a Thursday, January 14 replay at Morpeth if the game ends in a draw.

The winners of the tie will meet North Shields at home in the fourth round, and that match is scheduled for Saturday, January 16.
