Hyde United will be South Shields’ opponents in the second qualifying round of the Buildbase FA Trophy.

The tie will be played at Mariners Park on Saturday, November 10.

Shields qualified for this stage of the competition with a 4-0 victory over North Ferriby United on Saturday, with Hyde making it through with a 3-0 beating of Bamber Bridge.

The sides met in the Evo-Stik Premier Division earlier this month, with Hyde running out 4-1 winners.

Meanwhile, Shields have been drawn away to Chester-le-Street Town in the second round of the Durham Challenge Cup.

Further details will be announced in due course.

South Shields suffered a fourth consecutive defeat on the road as they were beaten 4-1 at Hyde United on Tuesday.

The Mariners slipped to eighth in the Evo-Stik Premier Division after a night to forget at Ewen Fields.

The one-sided scoreline was harsh on the Mariners after they were on top for large periods, particularly in the second half.

They ultimately paid for their mistakes at despite captain Robert Briggs converting a penalty shortly after half-time.

Shields were without the likes of Jon Shaw, Gavin Cogdon, Phil Turnbull and Lee Mason, but started on the front foot.

Carl Finnigan and Ben Harmison had early opportunities, but were unable to test home goalkeeper Peter Crook.

Gary Brown did force a save out of Crook with a close-range effort before the hosts imposed themselves more on proceedings.

Tom Pratt hit a shot not far wide from 12 yards and John McCombe headed against the bar after a free-kick from the right.

The Mariners almost went ahead midway through the first half when Briggs teased in a cross from the left which took a deflection before bouncing past the post.

The key moment came in the 25th minute when Briggs was penalised for a foul just inside the penalty area on the right.

Shields goalkeeper Liam Connell got a hand to Pratt’s spot-kick but was unable to keep it out as Hyde got their noses in front.

The Tigers doubled their lead three minutes before half-time as Connor Simpson got to a ball down the left channel, took it round Connell and produced a composed finish from a tight angle.

Shields had one chance to pull a goal back before the break when Josh Gillies’ corner found Finnigan, but Crook kept his effort out.

The Mariners started the second half brightly and got their reward when they were given a penalty for handball in the 48th minute.

Briggs’ spot-kick hit both posts before crossing the line and Shields suddenly had some momentum.

They were unable to create any real further chances until the 73rd minute, when Finnigan’s shot was deflected just over.

The resulting corner from Gillies fell to Finnigan, but he hit the ball into the ground and Hyde cleared well.

Dillon Morse almost scored an own goal as his header went just past Shields’ post, but from the resulting corner, Hyde restored their two-goal advantage with 12 minutes left as McCombe rose highest to head home.

Substitute Nicky Platt proved to be a thorn in Shields’ side and he hit a stunning effort narrowly over from 40 yards in the closing stages.

Finnigan was sent off in the 90th minute for his second booking, and soon after that Hyde went 4-1 up when Platt scored the goal he had been threatening with an impressive dink over Connell from the edge of the box.

It’s back to the drawing board for Shields, who will look to bounce back at home to Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday.

South Shields maintained their place at the top of the Evo-Stik North Division after impressing in a 1-1 draw at Hyde United on Tuesday.

The Mariners enjoyed a perfect start at Ewen Fields, with Aksel Juul firing them into a second minute lead.

Max Leonard equalised for the hosts less than four minutes later, and the remainder of the first half proved to be even.

Shields bossed much of the second half, but were unable to find a way through, despite much probing.

They remain top of the league, two points clear of Scarborough Athletic and three ahead of Hyde.

Shields welcomed back Carl Finnigan at Ewen Fields, just more than three weeks after suffering concussion against the same opponents.

Less than two minutes in, he was celebrating Juul’s opener as the forward cut inside from the right before firing in his first goal for the club with a fine finish into the bottom corner.

The Mariners enjoyed an excellent start, but were pegged back in the sixth minute when Liam Connell pulled off an outstanding save from a corner, but could do nothing to stop the follow-up from Leonard.

Hyde were threatening in the remainder of the first half, and only two superb blocks denied Matthew Beadle and Tom Pratt.

Connell also did well to save from Janni Lipka before Shields battled back into the game.

Jon Shaw headed a Julio Arca corner just wide at the near post, while Graeme Armstrong was denied by a late block.

Shields had four players booked in the first half, but the team showed good composure after the break to ensure they stayed with 11 men on the pitch.

They built up good pressure as the second half progressed, but were unable to find a way past Hyde goalkeeper Peter Crook.

Robert Briggs saw an effort saved from the edge of the box, and Crook also denied Lee Mason and Finnigan with decent stops.

At the other end, Pratt appeared to be one of the hosts’ biggest threats, and on one occasion he ran at the Shields defence before forcing Connell into a good save.

The closest the Mariners came was four minutes before the end as Arca floated in a free-kick from the right which just evaded a touch before going narrowly wide.

Shields will hope to cement their position at the top when they host Radcliffe Borough at Mariners Park.

SOUTH SHIELDS: Connell, Baxter, Lough, Shaw, Morse, Arca (c), Storey, Briggs, Armstrong (Mason 54), Finnigan, Juul (Richardson 78). Subs not used: Lister, Nicholson, Smith,
