VIDEO: Season must not peter out – King

By Daniel Prince

Jon King has urged his South Shields side not to let the season “peter out” after their midweek cup exit.

Shields lost 1-0 at Billingham Town in the semi-final of the Ernest Armstrong Memorial Cup on Tuesday, and in the video above, King mainly speaks about Tuesday’s defeat, and why he felt his side lost the game.

He then goes on to discuss the challenges that remain for his team this season, and why the campaign is far from over for the Mariners.

Shields face Billingham again tomorrow (Saturday), this time in an Ebac Northern League Division Two fixture at Peterlee.

Watch the video above for all of King’s thoughts as he reflects on Tuesday’s “learning curve” for his side.
