South Shields have announced the signing of Spennymoor Town striker Graeme Armstrong.

The 34-year-old is a proven performer at Evo-Stik League level, having played a key role for clubs including Darlington, Gateshead and Spennymoor in the past.

One of his most successful spells came at Darlington between 2014 and 2016, as he helped the club win back-to-back promotions through Evo-Stik North and the Evo-Stik Premier Division, scoring 39 goals in the process.

He then opted to leave Darlo for Spennymoor, and played a part in another promotion-winning campaign last time out as the club sealed a place in National League North.

The experienced frontman has also enjoyed spells with Annan Athletic, Dunston UTS, Harrogate Town, Blyth Spartans and Whitby Town.

Having enjoyed success almost everywhere he has been, Armstrong is now hoping to help the Mariners in their continued quest to climb the pyramid.

He said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be here. From the outside looking in, I could see how well South Shields were doing and how ambitious they are.

“When you see that, I think it’s a no-brainer when you get the opportunity to come and play here. The fanbase is absolutely brilliant, with an average home gate of more than 1,500 so far this season.

“When the opportunity came around, it was really difficult to pass up.”
