Gillies to undergo hernia operation

The club can confirm that midfielder Josh Gillies is set for a spell on the sidelines as he awaits a hernia operation.

Gillies will undergo the procedure on November 8 and is expected to be out of action for about six weeks from that date.

The 29-year-old, who joined South Shields from Darlington in the summer of 2018, has made 51 appearances for the club to date, scoring 11 times.

So far this season, he has three goals in 12 appearances.

We wish Josh a safe and speedy recovery.
