VIDEO: King – Great occasion

By Daniel Prince

Manager Jon King described Saturday’s return to Mariners Park as a “great occasion” for South Shields – despite the 3-0 defeat to Darlington.

It was Shields’ first game back at the ground since a two-year exile to Peterlee, and a bumper, family-orientated crowd was in attendance.

In the video above, King discusses the occasion, the game and the performances of a number of players, before looking ahead to the rest of pre-season.
