North Shields v Newcastle United – Show Your Support

10 years ago

Get along if you can to the North Shields v Newcastle United reserves cup game taking place tonight – Wednesday 11th December at 19:30.

We recently received the following from one of North Shields’ most ardent fans and tonight gives you a chance to support one of our great non-league teams and see the emerging NUFC players of the future.

‘North Shields are almost certain of promotion and are looking to build a much needed clubhouse in the near future, this type of fixture does not come around often for a team like North Shields.

A big crowd would provide a massive financial boost for the club and set them up nicely for going into the top division next season and would go a long way to getting a clubhouse put in place.’

This Northumberland FA Senior Cup quarter final match kicks off at 7.30pm at the Daren Persson Stadium and there should be plenty goals with the home side already having scored 94 this season in all competitions.

Admission £5 (£3 concessions) and the stadium is 5 minutes from Meadowell Metro station and a little further from the North Shields one.

The postcode is NE29 6UA if using a satnav. No alcohol on sale but the nearby Chirton Social Club will be open from 6pm and welcoming thirsty non-members.
