West Allotment game postponed

Today’s trip to West Allotment Celtic has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

This continues the frustrating run of weeks without a league fixture for South Shields, who haven’t played in Northern League Division Two since December 28.

Jon King’s side will now play a friendly at Mortimer Community College from 2pm.

Their next scheduled game is next Saturday, when the Mariners are due to play host to Thornaby at Peterlee.

Full details of the rearranged fixture against West Allotment will be released in due course.
