VIDEO: Julio honoured to captain side – and hails match-winner Byrne

Julio Arca told of his pride after captaining South Shields for the first time against Esh Winning on Saturday.

The midfielder was on the scoresheet for the 11th time this season as the Mariners won 4-2 at Mariners Park.

In the video above, Arca insists that wearing the armband did not change anything on the pitch for him, with regular captain and vice-captain Leepaul Scroggins and Daryll Hall on the bench.

He also talks about how happy he is with his goal tally this campaign, and how impressed he has been with Warren Byrne, who took his total for the season to 26 with a brace on Saturday.
