The game at Blyth’s South Newsham ground is expected to attract a large number of visiting supporters and will give the home club the chance to showcase some of its latest recruits in the first team.

Blyth Town benefitted from a £500,000 investment into the team and the club’s facilities including a new flood-lit training ground (Northern League division one standard – Grade H), upgrades to the pitch and improved clubhouse including changing rooms and hospitality areas.

Manager Mick Connors said: “We are excited to be able to welcome other clubs and visitors to our ground and showcase our new facilities to the community for the pre-season friendlies.

“We have made some great progress so far this pre-season and some of the latest recruits to our team have proved to be a real asset.”

Following the game against North Shields, Blyth Town will face Spittal in Berwick on Saturday, July 23, followed by the highly-anticipated home clash against Blyth Spartans on Saturday, July 30.

Supporters can pay £5 on the door (includes complimentary drink from the clubhouse bar) and concessions are available by contacting 07710 715045.
