MATCH PREVIEW | South Shields

Back to Blogs

Our record against newly promoted teams this season is 100%. Unfortunately, the statistic is played three, lost three. Having already been beaten by Warrington Town and Tamworth, the Magpies were resoundingly defeated on Saturday afternoon 5-0 away at Rushall Olympic. Tonight, though, sees an opportunity to bounce back at Victory Park against another promoted side, South Shields.

The Mariners will likely prove a very stern test that Chorley will do well to get anything from. The Northern Premier League winners for 2022/23 have taken to life well at National League North level and currently sit second, just one point behind league leaders Tamworth, having won seven, drawn four, and lost just two games.


South Shields’ playing record in the Northern Premier League for 2022/23 was:

1st. Played: 42. Won: 25. Draw: 10. Lost: 7. Goals For: 71. Goals Against: 39. Points: 85.



John Lufudu – 29 years old, right back. Previously with Spennymoor Town.

Luke James – 28 years old, centre forward. Previously with York City.

Paul Blackett – 25 years old, striker. Previously with Spennymoor Town.

Jed Abbey – 21 years old, midfielder. Previously with Alvechurch.

Aaron Martin – 32 years old, forward. Previously with Gateshead.

Lirak Hasani – 21 years old, midfielder. Season long loan from Gateshead.

Courtney Clarke – 20 years old, centre back. Previously with Derby County.
