VIDEO: Manager King praises team’s second half improvement at Billingham

Manager Jon King admitted he was frustrated with his South Shields side’s first half performance at Billingham Town on Saturday – but was delighted with their response after the break.

The Mariners led 1-0 at half-time, and went on to win 3-1 thanks to a hat-trick from Warren Byrne.

That took Shields’ tally of consecutive victories to 19, but King is convinced his side can still make improvements.

In the video above, he explains why he was so pleased with the Mariners’ second half display at Bedford Terrace, praises hat-trick hero Warren Byrne and hails the quality of his squad.

He then moves on to look ahead to next Saturday’s crunch FA Vase tie with former club Morpeth Town in the FA Vase.
