Seats on a supporters’ coach to Saturday’s FA Cup trip to Marske United are selling fast.

However, there is still plenty of availability as the Mariners count down to their first competitive outing of the campaign.

After a strong pre-season, with six wins and a draw from eight games, hopes are high ahead of the coming season.

The support of the fans will be more important than ever, though, as Shields aim to challenge on all fronts following their promotion to Northern League Division One.

They could not have been given a much tougher opening test in the FA Cup than Marske, who were runners-up in the Northern League last season and the winners the year before.

We would really appreciate your support at our first competitive match as we aim to start the season well.

Seats on the supporters’ coach cost £7 for those in the SSFC Members’ Club, and £10 for non-members, and the bus will depart Mariners Park at 1pm. The bar will be open from 11am, with free curry and chips for everyone going on the coach.

Regarding the Members’ Club, it costs £5 for adults and £3 for children to join, with a host of benefits. All of the details are available by following the link: SSFC Members’ Club

To book a place on the coach and/or a place in the Members’ Club, call 0191 454 7800 or visit Mariners Park.
