Chris Locke – December Player of the Month

By Daniel Prince

Chris Locke has been named South Shields’ Player of the Month for December.

Locke also won the club’s Player of the Month award for August, and has started all but one game this season, which he was forced to miss through suspension.

In December, the defender was part of a Shields side which won one game, drew once and lost twice in Ebac Northern League Division Two, with the Mariners conceding just five times in those four games.
