VIDEO: King on latest win
By Daniel Prince
Manager Jon King felt there was still room for improvement after watching his South Shields side beat Newton Aycliffe 4-1 on Saturday.
The victory was the Mariners’ fourth over an Ebac Northern League Division One side in pre-season, and was secured by goals from Wayne Buchanan, David Foley, Leepaul Scroggins and Aris Lokonga Guerin.
In the video above, King discusses the latest victory, and in particular how pleased he was to see Scroggins and Foley back on the pitch after an injury-interrupted pre-season.
He also looks ahead to Tuesday’s friendly against Blyth Spartans at Mariners Park, talks about why he isn’t getting carried away by friendly results and previews Saturday’s league season-opener against Northallerton Town.
