Martin departs as loan ends

Dan Martin’s time at South Shields has come to an end after his loan deal expired.

Martin was initially brought in on a one-month loan from League One side Accrington Stanley in September as cover for the injured Jordan Hunter.

The deal was extended by another four weeks and the 19-year-old subsequently won the Mariners’ Shaun Matthias Player of the Month award for October.

After making 12 appearances for Shields, Martin returned to his parent club and has since been loaned out to Bamber Bridge.

We would like to thank him for his efforts during his time at 1st Cloud Arena and wish him well for the rest of his career.
