Martin Allen and Levi Amantchi

Former Wallsend Boys Club and Catalyst4 Academy player Levi (17) has now signed his first professional deal with Chesterfield F.C and after a number of successful substitute appearances, has made his first start earlier this month with an assist (see link below) in the victory against Salford City.

A huge congratulations to South Shields who had a fantastic run in the F.A Youth Cup, resulting in an eventual defeat against Lincoln City.  This was an invaluable learning experience for all involved.

A number of our ex-academy players continue to develop at their clubs during their scholarships and we will soon be delighted to announce 5 new scholarships for our current academy under 16s.
