VIDEO: Scott’s clean start

Goalkeeper Scott Pocklington recorded his fourth clean sheet in a row on Saturday as South Shields defeated league leaders Team Northumbria 2-0 at Mariners Park.

Pocklington has conceded just one goal in his five appearances since joining the Mariners from Bishop Auckland, and could not have hoped for a much more positive start to life at Shields.

In the video above, he discusses his display against Team Northumbria, which saw him make a vital triple stop in the first half and a fine double save after the break.

Pocklington also talks about why he “prides himself” on clean sheets, how well he has settled into the group and how impressed he has been with the Shields supporters since joining the club, before looking ahead to Tuesday’s game at Whickham.
