To book a place on any of the aforementioned coaches, contact Westoe Travel on 0191 455 2292 or visit the shop at 120 Westoe Road, South Shields, Tyne and Wear, NE33 3PF.

Supporters who would like to attend Wednesday’s league match at Heaton Stannington by coach can book up now.

The coach – providing there is sufficient interest – will leave Mariners Park at 6pm on matchday, and return after the game.

South Shields will be looking to move another step closer to promotion in the game.

A place on the coach costs £7 per person, and can be booked up in person at Mariners Park – at the game against Birtley Town, if you wish – or by calling 0191 454 7800.

Bookings can also be taken for the match next Saturday at Stokesley Sports Club through the same methods.

Coach travel will again be available for supporters wanting to attend the Mariners’ next three away fixtures.

South Shields travel to Ryhope CW on Saturday, with a 3pm kick-off, and a supporters’ coach will depart Mariners Park at 1.45pm ahead of the game, costing £6 a person.

On Tuesday, the Mariners are back at Consett again, this time for a Durham Challenge Cup fixture. Seats are now available on a coach to that game at £7 a head.

A week on Saturday, meanwhile, Shields will be back in Ebac Northern League Division Two action at Billingham Synthonia, and seats on a coach to that game also cost £7.

To book a seat on a coach to any of those games, please drop into Mariners Park or call 0191 454 7800.

Please note, we are unable to offer refunds in the event of a game being postponed or rearranged, as the bus would still need to be paid for. Instead, the coach ticket would automatically become valid for any rearranged date.
