One of South Shields' most famous sons has sent a good luck message to the Mariners ahead of their clash with Cleethorpes in the FA Vase final.
Speaking to us at the press call, the former Harton School pupil sent his best wishes to South Shields FC and tipped them for success at Wembley on May 21.
He said: “I think it’s incredible, and once again, as per usual, no one does it better than South Shields. I’m sure they’ll do fantastic and I wish them all the best of luck and congratulations.
"I hope it goes very well for them. Have a good one.”
