Ben Riding and Daryll Hall win Player of the Month awards

Defenders Ben Riding and Daryll Hall have won the club’s Shaun Matthias Player of the Month award for October and November respectively.

Both helped South Shields to win every game played across the two months.

Riding had a particularly impressive October at both ends of the pitch.

He played in all nine games, in which five clean sheets were kept, while he scored four goals, most memorably at Bishop Auckland in the FA Vase.

This was the period, meanwhile, when Hall established himself as a fans’ favourite with the Mariners, and he played in all four of the wins in November.

He also scored the winner in the League Cup tie with Chester-le-Street Town at Mariners Park, and netted in the 9-1 beating of Tow Law Town.

The club would like to congratulate both players on their awards, and also thanks Shaun Matthias for their continued sponsorship of Player of the Month.
