South Shields have added to their squad with the capture of Penrith striker Martyn Coleman.

Coleman - who has scored 21 goals so far this season - is available to make his debut in Saturday's game against Brandon United at Mariners Park.

However, the match is in some doubt because of the weather, and the club has appealed for volunteers.

Volunteers would work on the pitch in an attempt to get it playable, and the club has asked supporters to help out from the morning onwards.
