Picture Special: South Shields fans cheer on their heroes at Coleshill

South Shields had the backing of more than 300 fans as they travelled to Coleshill for the first leg of their FA Vase semi-final.

As usual, the Mariners' club photographer Peter Talbot was on hand to capture the action, on and off the field.

Here's a selection of his pictures of the travelling support, who watched their team pull off a last-gasp 2-1 win to set them up nicely for next weekend's home leg.
