VIDEO: Manager Jon King on CLS win, promotion challenge and the fans

Manager Jon King insisted the result was all that mattered to South Shields after watching his side beat promotion rivals Chester-le-Street Town 2-0 at Mariners Park on Saturday.

Shields were solid throughout the game, and won thanks to goals from David Foley and Martyn Coleman to move eight points clear at the top of Ebac Northern League Division Two.

In the video above, King talks about the game, the challenges his players faced and why it’s important to stay grounded despite the lead at the top.

He also talks about the crowd of 903 and the atmosphere around the club before looking ahead to Tuesday’s Durham Challenge Cup semi-final against Newton Aycliffe at Mariners Park.
