Season tickets for the 2019-20 campaign are now back on sale after the early bird period expired.

Following discussions within the club, it has been decided that the price freeze implemented on season tickets will continue throughout the summer.

When season tickets were initially offered at those prices as part of an early bird scheme in March, the league we would be playing in next season was unclear.

A promotion may have seen prices increase following the early bird scheme, but as we will again be competing in the Evo-Stik Premier Division next term, the prices will remain the same.

The turnstile admission prices for individual league home matches will also remain at £10 for adults, £8 for students and over-65s, and £3 for under-16s.

Below are the prices for those looking to purchase a season ticket.

Entry only – Adults £170, Concessions/Students £135, Under-16s £35

Balcony (limited to 100 people) – Adults £210, Concessions/Students £165, Under-16s £65

Seat in stand (limited to 115 people) – Adults £230, Concessions/Students £185, Under-16s £100

Season tickets can also be bought in person at Mariners Park between 12pm and 5pm on weekdays, or by calling 0191 454 7800 between those times.

Those who would like to pay in monthly installments through a standing order scheme are asked to visit Mariners Park between 12pm and 5pm on weekdays to discuss options and collect a form.

The club would like to thank supporters for their continued outstanding backing.

Robert Briggs won five awards at the sold-out SSFC end of season presentation evening at Mariners Park on Saturday.

A crowd of close to 200 packed into the marquee to recognise the efforts of the squad throughout the 2018-19 campaign and enjoy a night of entertainment, provided by compere Phil Hourigan and comedian Josh Daniels.

The first award handed out was the Top Goalscorer prize, which was won by Briggs, who netted 19 times in all competitions during the season. The award was kindly sponsored by Durastic.

Next up was the Young Player of the Year award, with SSFC Academy graduate Callum Guy claiming the prize after breaking into the first-team squad on several occasions during the season and helping the Academy win its first national trophy. The award was sponsored by KCH Engineering.

Briggs also won the Supporters’ Player of the Year award, voted for by fans in an online poll. Briggs took 39% of the votes, with Lee Mason second on 15% and Craig Baxter third on 9%. The award was sponsored by Rob S Gas Services.

The Goal of the Season – again voted for by supporters in an online vote – was David Foley’s stunning overhead kick from outside the penalty area against North Ferriby United in the FA Trophy. The award was sponsored by the Lakeside Inn.

Briggs’ third award was the prize for Players’ Player of the Year, as voted for by the players themselves. The award was sponsored by S Davison (Electrical) Ltd.

The Player of the Year award – as voted for by club committee members, board members and staff – went to Blair Adams. The award was sponsored by TGS Industrial Supplies.

The SSFC Supporters’ Alliance Player of the Year award went to Briggs, and was presented to him by Alliance chairman Geordie Pearce.

The Simonside Branch Player of the Year was also Briggs, who was presented with his award by Simonside Branch committee member Jon Hardy.

The club would like to thank all of those who sponsored an award or who supported the event through their attendance.

The club can confirm the departure of Gavin Cogdon following the completion of his contract.

Cogdon leaves with a record of 56 goals in 107 appearances, and he played a part in five trophy wins during his three-year spell at Mariners Park.

The striker joined from Spennymoor Town in the summer of 2016 and leaves us with a great deal of happy memories, from his League Cup final hat-trick against North Shields in 2017 to his dramatic late winner against York City in the FA Cup later that year.

The club would like to thank him for his immense contribution over the last three years and wish him all the best for the future.

The club can also confirm it has decided to release Connor Bell.

The striker joined on a short-term deal in February, and went on to score one goal in 12 appearances.

We would also like to thank Connor for his efforts and endeavour in the short period he spent with the club, and wish him all the best for the future.

Further news will be released following the conclusion of individual discussions with the entirety of the current squad.
