Under-19s still in title hunt after cruising to Farsley win

South Shields’ Under-19s breathed new life into their hopes of winning their National League Under-19 Alliance division with a thumping win at Farsley Celtic on Wednesday.

The young Mariners breezed to a 6-0 victory at Throstle Nest, with Marcelino Junior scoring twice, and the other goals scored by Jake Dunn, Will McCamley, Michael Colquhoun and Bailey Judson.

Shields have won 11 of their 14 league games, and sit fourth in the table.

Leaders Guiseley were beaten 2-1 at Gateshead in midweek and lead the Mariners by 14 points, but Shields have four games in hand, and must play Guiseley again.
