Team Northumbria Preview

By Daniel Prince

South Shields play for the second time in three days tomorrow (Monday) when they make the trip to Team Northumbria in Ebac Northern League Division Two.

The Mariners go into the game on the back of Saturday’s 4-0 defeat at Seaham Red Star, and will be looking for their first win since September 20.

Team Northumbria, meanwhile, have had a fine start to the season, and have won their last four games in all competitions.

They sit second in the league having picked up 34 points from their opening 17 matches.

Team news for Shields is awaited, but Adam Sharp and Aron Burn are expected to be available again after being away for Saturday’s game.

Captain Barrie Smith serves the last game of his suspension, but Chris Locke is available, with his one-match ban for five bookings not set to kick in until Saturday.

Kick-off tomorrow at Coach Lane Sports Centre is at 7.30pm.
