Fans leaving Sunderland’s 3:00pm kick off against Shrewsbury Town at the Stadium of Light will, however, not be impacted by the lack of additional trains as the system is stil catering for larger crowds at football matches.

The additional trains are mainly used to ensure regular passengers do not need to be caught up in the larger crowds.

Trains will continue to leave between the scheduled 12 minute intervals, although an additional train to South Gosforth will be leaving Seaburn station at 17:13.

Fans looking to head towards South Hylton can catch the additional train which is set to arrive at the Stadium of Light metro a little after 4:30pm.

Saturday April 16 and Easter Sunday will both see trains continue to the regular timetable while Easter Monday will also see a reduced timetable.

This will follow the same schedule as Good Friday where all scheduled trains will run, although any additional peak trains throughout the system will not be part of the timetable.

Trains will return to the regular scheduled times from Tuesday April 19.
