Great first season for Under-8s

South Shields Under-8s have enjoyed a fantastic 2014-15 season, their first together.

After winning the Russell Foster Winter League, they then performed outstandingly well to finish runners-up in the Michael Gibbon Memorial Trophy.

Some fantastic football was played over the season, with many a coach complimenting their passing ability and all round great play.

Coach Stephen Taylor said: “Now, it’s onto preparations for the Under-9s 7-a-side league, where I’m sure they will continue their development into a fine set of footballers.

“A big shout out also to all the parents, who have been exceptional this season with their support for the lads and what we’re trying to achieve, always in a positive manner.”

Squad: Nicholas Mills, Jake Markey, Kobe Clark, Mitchell Smith, Taylor Mason, Hayden Buckham, Lewis Kapranos, Jack Taylor.
