One more point needed for Under-16s
South Shields’ Under-16s need just one more point to secure their sixth league title in a row.
The young Mariners would have sealed the championship by beating Fulwell FC at Gateshead Stadium last night, but were edged out 1-0.
They are now just a point away from winning the Russell Foster Premier League, in what is their last season in the division.
The Under-16s have already won the County Cup and League Cup this term.
They need a point tomorrow night at home to West Auckland Juniors at Hebburn Reyrolle FC, with kick-off at 6.30pm.
The team would appreciate some support in what will be a tough fixture.
