Jon King has praised the impact of South Shields youngster Ryan Bolam – and has backed more of the club’s Under-18s side to make their first-team bow this season.

The 16-year-old also played the closing stages of Tuesday’s draw against Ryton and Crawcrook Albion, and King discusses his impact in the video above.

He also talks about the prospect of more of Kevin Bolam’s side appearing for the senior Mariners team this season.
