Bedlington Terriers’ new signing Marcus Brown says that it was great to be back playing non-league football again after making an appearance in the Wansbeck derby.

The 30-year-old played with Evo Stick Division One South side Romulus last season, and making a return to the non-league scene has Brown “excited”.

“It was great to sign, it’s good to be back playing non-league football again,” he said.

“Playing in the Evo Stick will help me a lot, the leagues really aren’t that different, so I won’t be a fish out of water.

“It was a good game and it was great to get started on a winning note, hopefully I can play more games and get goals for the side.”

Brown could have made it a debut to remember after having a couple of chances, the first of which was cleared off the line by his own player.

Brown said: “I had a couple chances in that period when I came on and the header was cleared off the line by one of our own guys, I still don’t know who done it.

“It was great to be part of the derby, to be fair, I don’t normally play that position in that formation, and I got a stitch halfway through.”

The forward is convinced that the Terriers have enough to stay in the league this season, but claimed that a loss during the week would mean the Ashington result was ‘pointless’.

Manager Andy Ferrell said: “It is good to get new faces in, especially if they are going to improve the side.

“Marcus is a good player and will be a good addition to the side.”
