Double for Under-12s

South Shields’ Under-12s Santos side is celebrating after sealing a double.

The young Mariners overcame the challenge of Chester-Le-Street Riverside to win the League Cup, adding to the Russell Foster Youth League Premier League title they had already clinched.

Their victory over Chester-le-Street saw Shields’ youngsters overcome a side which had beaten them 2-0 only the night before in their final league game of the season.

The impressive young Mariners played some fantastic football on the night to secure a 5-0 victory, ending another superb campaign for the team.

They are now looking forward to their first taste of the 11-a-side game when the new league season begins in September.

The scorers for Shields in the final were Errington (2), Crews (2) and Neary.
