VIDEO: Ibby Hassan thrilled after first taste of Mariners Park atmosphere

Defender Ibby Hassan made his long-awaited home debut for South Shields on Wednesday – and thoroughly enjoyed the ‘great atmosphere’ at Mariners Park.

A crowd of 646 cheered Shields to victory against Gateshead in the Durham Challenge Cup, during which Hassan was in solid form at the back.

In the video above, he discusses his home debut, and talks about how well he has settled in at the club.

He also moves on to look ahead to the return to league action on Saturday, when he feels it is ‘imperative’ the Mariners defeat Whickham.
