David Carson wins club’s August Player of the Month award
David Carson has won the club’s Shaun Matthias Player of the Month award for August.
The 20-year-old has had an impressive first month at Mariners Park since joining from Blackburn Rovers.
He has started all seven of South Shields’ competitive games so far this season, and has scored twice.
Most recently, he was a key part of Monday’s 2-0 win over Penrith, scoring the opening goal after being set up brilliantly by brother Danny.
David has played in a variety of roles so far, including central midfield, right midfield and as a forward supporting Jon Shaw.
He is pictured above receiving his award from Kathleen Butterfield, of club sponsor Shaun Matthias.
A full interview with David is featured in the matchday programme for Saturday’s game against Whitley Bay at Mariners Park – the front cover is below.
