Newcastle Building Society also claims to aim to play a key part in making positive change happen in the region, build stronger and more vibrant communities and help other businesses and partners succeed.

The club says it is the latter point which has led to its partnership with The Mariners.

Newcastle Building Society area manager David Pearson said: “South Shields FC is such an important part of the community and they’re doing amazing things for the town.

“We’re proud to support both the men’s and women’s teams as they go from strength to strength this season and look forward to many future successes.”
