Pre-season | South Shields friendly confirmed

Blyth Spartans will travel to BetVictor Northern Premier side South Shields next Saturday as a part of our pre-season schedule. 

Michael Nelson’s men stepped up their preparations for the 2020/21 National League North season this week following opening matches at Hebburn Town and Dunston UTS. 

Kick-off at the 1st Cloud Arena is at 3pm on Saturday, September 5 and supporters must purchase tickets in advance. 

Around 90 of the 600 tickets will be allocated to Spartans supporters. Full details on how these can be purchased will follow in the coming days. 

The two sides played out a 2-2 draw during their previous meeting in July 2018. 

The Mariners were 2-0 up on South Tyneside before goals from Dan Maguire and Michael Liddle levelled up proceedings. 

Kieran Charlton and Callum Guy – signed from South Shields this summer – and Olly Scott could come up against their old club.
