South Shields scored four times in the second half to give them the points at Willington.
Adam Burnicle put Willington into the lead on 27 minutes, and Shields didn’t equalise until the hour, when Stephen Ramsey scored from a loose ball.
Shields took the lead when Warren Byrne scored from the spot after he was brought down, and he made it 3-1 from a pass by new signing Robbie Briggs. He completed his hat trick from a rebound off the bar.
