Jon Shaw has picked up April’s Shaun Matthias Player of the Month award.
In a vital month which saw the Northern League Division One title race reach its climax, the Mariners conceded just four goals in seven games.
Shaw, of course, was a crucial part of that record at the back, with gritty consecutive 1-0 wins over Bishop Auckland, Consett and North Shields helping South Shields get over the line and finish first.
After such an impressive and consistent season, this is Shaw’s first Player of the Month award since joining the Mariners last summer.
Well done to him on the award and thanks to Shaun Matthias for their continued outstanding support.
