VIDEO: Manager King ‘over the moon’ for ‘unbelievable’ fans after Vase win

South Shields manager Jon King admitted his side could have played better at Bishop Auckland on Friday – but was ‘over the moon’ after they booked their place in the next round of the FA Vase with a 2-1 win.

Ben Riding’s header and a late winner by Warren Byrne secured a 14th consecutive victory for the Mariners, in front of a travelling support thought to be in excess of 500.

In the video above, King talks about the ‘unbelievable’ support, and why he was delighted his team rewarded those who made the journey.

He also discusses the character of the side, and talks about the upcoming challenges.
