Mark Carruthers’ FT view
Liam Kennedy’s FT view
FT - and South Shields are beaten, but far from disgraced.
90’ Fighting to the end
Three minutes added at the end...
87’ SO SO close
Another change for the Mariners...
62’ GOAL - and it could be the end for the Mariners!
53’ 2-1 - it had been coming...
A catalogue of errors at the back as a cross from the left is misjudged by the backline and Myles Boney and May nets his second… It’s all Cheltenham
