South Shields Football Club would like to wish all of its supporters, sponsors, players and staff a very Merry Christmas.

The club thanks everyone wholeheartedly for their continued support, and also wishes you a happy and healthy 2016.

Mariners chairman Geoff Thompson said: “I would like to wish a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone, particularly our superb supporters. I’d like to thank everyone for their support and enthusiasm.

“Hopefully the club can make 2016 a successful year, and there will be no lack of effort to make that happen.

“We want to make the club something to be proud of, and it would be great for South Shields to be back on the map from a footballing perspective.

“We have to keep our feet on the ground, because these are still early days, but I’d like to thank everyone for their support and wish everyone all the best for the festive period.

“Hopefully I will see everyone at a game early in January.”

Manager Jon King added: “I’d like to say thanks to the fans, especially for the last few weeks.

“The amount of people who have given up their time to help on the pitch has been amazing. They are top, top supporters.

“I’d like to wish them all a fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year.

“Thanks for the support this year; hopefully we are giving you a team to be proud of and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2016.”

Captain Leepaul Scroggins said: “The fans have been excellent for us so far this season, at home and away games.

“They’re giving up their time to come and watch us, which we’re very grateful for.

“Myself and the team would like to wish all of our fans a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hopefully we’ll see everyone at a game soon as we try to keep the winning run going.”

The club is next scheduled to be in action on January 2, with a trip to Stokesley Sports Club.
