South Shields FC Elite Academy reached the third round of the FA Youth Cup eventually losing to a very strong Fulham side.  Virtually all of the team’s squad are Catalyst4 Academy players or clients and we are very proud of their progression.

South Shields Academy have already gone one better than last year by reaching round three for the first time in the club’s history – brilliantly beating Gateshead, Carlisle City, North Shields, Harrogate Town, Morecambe and Hartlepool United along the way.

The experience will have helped massively in the development of these young players and we watch with anticipation how their young careers continue.
