Away kit launch: New strip now available to buy!

The club’s new away kit was unveiled during a special event at Mariners Park on Friday.

The reveal came after schoolchildren across South Tyneside took part in a competition to design it, with over 160 entries being made.

The winner was 10-year-old Ashton Defty, of Stanhope School, and he was at Mariners Park to see representatives of the South Shields men’s team, ladies’ team and junior teams model his design. Ashton’s name is printed on the arm of every strip.

The shirt is now available to buy at a cost of £30 for adults and £25 for children. To get yours, pop into Mariners Park or call 0191 454 7800.

As well as the kit launch, a question and answer session was held with Mariners manager Jon King, assistant manager Lee Picton and strikers Jon Shaw and Warren Byrne.

They talked about their hopes for the season ahead, and were well-received by the supporters who were present.

Most of the Shields first team were at the event, with the ladies’ and junior sides also well represented.

Meanwhile, singer Sarah Ryan performed a superb set – we would like to say a big thanks to her for being a part of the evening.

The club would also like to thank all of those who attended the event, and we hope to see you again soon.
