Stephen Ramsey’s pride after testimonial honour at Mariners Park

Stephen Ramsey’s pride after testimonial honour at Mariners Park

Stephen Ramsey told of his pride after a crowd of 1,405 turned out at Mariners Park to watch his testimonial between South Shields and a Sunderland AFC XI.

Ramsey was honoured by the Mariners for his 10 years of magnificent service, and although a broken leg ruled him out of playing, he enjoyed a memorable night.

The 28-year-old led the Shields team onto the pitch against his boyhood club, accompanied by his children Lilly, nine, Daisy, five, and Alfie, three.

He then kicked the game off before immediately being withdrawn to a standing ovation.

Afterwards, he revealed his emotions in an interview with MarinersTV, which can be viewed above.
