Martin Scott leaves role as assistant manager

The club can confirm Martin Scott has resigned from his role as assistant manager for business and personal reasons.

Martin joined South Shields as assistant to Lee Picton and Graham Fenton in October 2016 and established himself as a firm favourite at Mariners Park.

He was an important figure behind the scenes as Shields won four trophies in the 2016-17 season and had a positive start to this campaign.

However, he has now opted to leave the club with immediate effect.

Martin said: “This was a massive decision I felt I had to make for personal and business reasons.

“I would like to thank Lee and Graham personally for their help and support since I have been at the club.

“Thanks also must go to the club, all the staff and the fantastic supporters.

“Lastly, I want to say a massive thanks to every player in the squad. I love you all. Good luck.

“I now want to concentrate my efforts on my family, my business and making sure the Academy at South Shields FC which we helped set up becomes a massive success.”

The club would like to place on record its thanks to Martin, and wish him all the best in whatever he decides to do in the future.

He will always be welcome at Mariners Park.
