FA Cup South Shields: 11 pictures from the 1st Cloud Arena as South Shields FC fans show support in FA Cup tie

South Shields FC supporters were in strong voice on Saturday, November 5 as the club faced Forest Green Rovers in an FA Cup tie on home turf.

And while it ended in a 2-0 defeat for the Mariners – knocking them out of the first round proper – it was a milestone day at the 1st Cloud Arena with a record crowd of 3,800 in attendance to watch the game.

There was no shortage of pride amongst the fans on Saturday, and this fantastic series of photographs taken by Kev Wilson on match day really show the atmosphere.

Many thanks, as always, to Kev Wilson and South Shields FC for the photographs. See if you can spot anyone you recognise in the round-up.
