Watch the 'South Shields boys making all the noise' as players and fans celebrate title triumph

Last night South Shields were crowned Northern League Division One champions.

And never mind the Champagne football, they certainly showed the rest of the division how to party, too, as they celebrated with fans on the pitch at Ashington after a title clinching 4-1 win.

David Foley's first-half brace as well as strikes from Michael Richardson and Gavin Cogdon ensured the Mariners sealed the points that meant nearest challengers Morpeth Town could no longer catch them at the division summit, with just one game left to play.

Just two years after the club almost went out of existence - celebrations were particularly sweet for those who remember those not too distant bad times.

Two title wins on the bounce, promotion to the Evo-Stik First Division North, and three cup finals to come, including the FA Vase date at Wembley next month, things don't get much better right now if you're a Shields fan.
