Craig Turns joins Shields following departure of Joss Carmichael

The club is pleased to confirm the signing of goalkeeper Craig Turns – and can also announce the departure of Joss Carmichael to Sunderland RCA.

Experienced Turns, 34, is formerly of the likes of Blyth Spartans, Darlington and Spennymoor, and started his career as a youngster with Sunderland.

It is hoped he will be available for Saturday’s game against North Shields at Mariners Park.

Carmichael had earlier in the week made the decision to join Sunderland RCA in search of regular match action.

He left the club on amicable terms, having made 12 appearances for the Mariners so far this season.

Everyone at SSFC would like to thank Joss for his efforts, and wish him all the very best for the future.
