Marine play Dunston this afternoon in their opening game of the 2019/20 BetVictor Northern Premier North West season.
The Tynesiders won last season's Northern League by a mere 17 points, and are among the favourites for promotion in their first-ever season at this level.
The Mariners, having suffered a first-ever relegation the club's history last term will hope to bounce straight back, and Manager Neil Young should have his full squad available for selection for today's contest.
Prior to today's game, Marine will officially unveil the new facilities at the Marine Travel Arena which have been completed during the Summer months. Invited guests will be welcomed in the boardroom at 2pm before being escorted around the new facilities. VIP's will then give speeches before the ribbon is cut at 2:30pm to mark the facilities officially open.
Admission for today's game is £10 for adults and £5 concessions, with accompanied under-11s admitted free of charge.
Our usual offer for holders of Everton, Liverpool & Tranmere Rovers season tickets will run again for all Marine league games this season, with half-price admission granted on production of the relevant season tickets at the turnstiles.
The clubrooms will be open this afternoon from midday, with our special cask ale "Mighty Mariner 125", brewed locally by Stamps Brewery, once again on sale.
Kick-off is at 3pm.
