North East scribes honour trio of Non-League clubs at awards night

A trio of Non-League clubs were recognised by the scribes from the North East Football Writers Association at their annual awards night on Sunday.

Dunston UTS, Gateshead and Morpeth Town were all honoured alongside England and Manchester City captain Steph Houghton and Newcastle United duo Fabian Schar and Sean Longstaff.

Current Northern League champions Dunston received recognition for their impressive title win and for reaching the fourth and final qualifying round of the FA Cup.

After speaking on stage, manager Chris Swailes revealed his pride at seeing his club invited to the event.

The Dunston boss told The Non-League Paper’s Mark Carruthers: “It’s great to be alongside some great guests and to go on stage to collect our award. It’s a fantastic football club and I am honoured to be part of it.

“We had a brilliant year winning the league last year and getting so close to the first round of the FA Cup and this just tops it off.”
