This season’s South Shields FC Under-15s team are looking for a new coach for next term.

They are seeking a coach to progress the team next season, when they will enter the Under-16s age group.

Anyone interested should email Martin Urwin at martinurwin909@msn.com.

Many congratulations are very well deserved on the fine achievements of two of our junior and youth development teams.

The South Shields FC Under-16s – members of the Russell Foster Tyne and Wear Youth League – will contest the final of the County Cup, details of date and venue anticipated.

The South Shields FC Raiders Under-14s – members of the Chase Holmes Youth League – will also be competing in their League Cup final, match details to be announced soon.

This represents a terrific advertisement for our splendid young players, who have all done so very well indeed in both reaching these forthcoming cup finals, and local support to cheer them on to much hoped for victories will be no doubt well in evidence as encouragement on their big days.
