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...

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
