VIDEO: Arca – we deserved more after ‘incredible’ effort against Morpeth

Julio Arca reflected on the cruel nature of football after South Shields were harshly beaten on penalties by Morpeth Town in the FA Vase on Wednesday.

Second-placed Ebac Northern League Division One side Morpeth won 10-9 on spot-kicks after a 3-3 draw in a game the Mariners dominated for large periods.

Arca’s goal in extra-time put Shields 2-1 ahead, and at that stage, the former Sunderland and Middlesbrough midfielder believed the team were on their way to victory, as he explains in the video above.

He also discusses the match as a whole, and how important it is that Shields bounce back in Saturday’s top-of-the-table clash with Ryhope CW.
