South Shields youngsters progress to third round of FA Youth Cup

South Shields Under 18s will feature in the third round of the FA Youth Cup for the first time in the club's history following a 3-2 victory over Hartlepool United.

Sam Hodgson gave the side a lead in the 18th minute before Hartlepool hit back with an equaliser just before half-time through Joe Grey.

Sam Hodgson then scored his second minutes into the second half to restore the lead with a penalty.

Ben Errington extended the lead to 3-1 with eight minute left before Jack Leonard made it 3-2, but it wasn't enough for the visitors at Mariners Park, with 445 fans in attendance.

The young Mariners will travel to Fulham in round three.
