Midweek break for Railwaymen

There will be no midweek match this week for the Railwaymen as cup matches take precedence.

Shildon were originally scheduled to play local rivals Newtown Aycliffe at home, but when that tie was postponed, a new fixture against Guisborough Town was scheduled.

However, with Guisborough drawing their weekend FA Cup tie, the replay will take place instead of the league match, giving the Railwaymen a rest from their recent travels.

The side’s next match will now be next Saturday, 5th October and will once more be away, to league newcomers, Morpeth Town.

That tie will be followed by a sequence of six home league matches, beginning on Wednesday 9th October against Consett.
