VIDEO: Wightman’s delight

By Daniel Prince

Jonny Wightman says he’s “champing at the bit” after agreeing a move back to South Shields from Dunston.

The forward is rejoining his hometown club, who he won the League Cup with in 2010.

Wightman has stepped down from Ebac Northern League Division One for the challenge of winning promotion with the Mariners.

And in the video above, he discusses why he made that decision, how difficult it was to leave the club in the first place and his hopes for the season ahead.
