Stephen Ramsey scored the winner as South Shields moved to the top of Northern League Division Two with a 1-0 derby win at Hebburn Town yesterday.

The Mariners dominated possession in the Bank Holiday fixture in front of a bumper crowd at the Hebburn Sports and Social Ground.

Ramsey’s third goal in as many games earned Jon King’s side the three points, with the striker rising highest to nod home Robert Briggs’ deep free-kick.
