South Shields’ FA Vase third round game against Morpeth Town tonight has been postponed.

A late pitch inspection by the refree ruled the Mariners Park surface unplayable after more rain earlier today.

Shields had been hopeful of the game going ahead, and had enlisted the help of several fans this morning who forked and put sand on the heavier parts of the pitch.

They will now attempt to find a new date for the fixture.
