VIDEO: Lewis Galpin gives reaction to Washington win

Lewis Galpin expressed his delight after helping South Shields to a 2-1 victory over Washington in the FA Vase on Saturday.

Galpin – who is part of a defence which had recorded five clean sheets in a row prior to the Washington game – was once again solid at the back as the Mariners beat the high-flying Ebac Northern League Division One side.

The 21-year-old admitted he did not care how the team played in the match, as the only thing that mattered to him was getting through to the next round.

In the video above, Galpin discusses the Washington game, why the FA Vase is so special to him and how much he feels the team has improved over recent weeks.

He goes on to talk about the competition for places at Mariners Park and why the fans at Shields are the best he has ever played in front of, and looks ahead to Tuesday’s game against Ryhope Colliery Welfare.
