South Shields are preparing for the game of their life at Wembley in The FA Vase final.

Their last four training sessions will take place at Newcastle and Sunderland’s top facilities.

The Mariners will train at Sunderland’s Academy of Light tonight (May 11), on Saturday and on Tuesday, before a final session at Newcastle’s academy next Thursday. Three days later, Shields will walk out at the national stadium in front of a bumper crowd.

Training at such high-quality facilities days before the big day will no doubt benefit The Mariners.

Shields have already won three trophies this season, along with going on a 32 winning streak, they will be hoping to add another trophy when facing Cleethorpes FC on May 21.
