VIDEO: Barrie Smith – I could never have imagined this a year ago
Barrie Smith admits that he never dreamed South Shields could progress so much as a club over 12 months.
This time last year, Smith was part of a Mariners team heading for a bottom-half finish in Ebac Northern League Division Two while playing in Peterlee.
He is still a key part of things at the club, but Shields are now top of the league, and playing in front of bumper crowds on a weekly basis at Mariners Park.
In the video above, Smith discusses the turnaround, and reflects on Tuesday’s 5-0 win over Crook Town.
