VIDEO – Bell: We got what we deserved

By Daniel Prince

Assistant manager Lee Bell has admitted South Shields deserved to be beaten after watching the Mariners fall to a 3-0 defeat at Thornaby on Saturday.

Bell questioned the character of the Shields side after the game, although he did feel they should have been awarded a penalty with the score at 1-0.

He described the performance of the team as “very poor”, and now wants a response in next week’s game against Willington at Peterlee.
