“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.”

“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.”
