VIDEO: Boss on Team North win

Manager Jon King admitted South Shields did not play at their best against Team Northumbria in the League Cup on Tuesday – but he was delighted that they battled to a 1-0 win.

Leepaul Scroggins’ first half header secured Shields’ passage into the next round of the competition, where they will face Chester-le-Street Town at home.

In the video above, King discusses the game, the ‘unbelievable’ fans at Mariners Park and the challenge ahead against Team Northumbria in the league on Saturday.

King also talks about the signing of striker Andrew Bulford, and what the new arrival will bring to the Mariners.
