Pop Up Ticket Office – Darlington Ticket Sales

In an attempt to give Darlington supporters every opportunity to purchase a ticket for the game on Tuesday night, Spennymoor Town will create a Pop-Up Ticket Office at Heritage Park on Saturday when the Quakers play their first home game of the season.

Chairman Brad Groves said today ‘Ticket sales have been going very well for the game and we are just about where we thought we would be but I want to be fair to everyone and give them a chance to get a ticket for the game if they have not been able to get through to the ticket office or buy them online.’

The Pop Up Ticket Office will be set up close to the Turnstiles at Heritage Park and will open at 1:30pm.

Spennymoor Town Reserves – Coxhoe Athletic Partnership announced

Spennymoor Town Chairman Brad Groves has revealed details of a new initiative which sees Spennymoor Town Reserves entering into a partnership with Coxhoe Athletic.

Spennymoor Town Reserves have resigned from the Durham Alliance and Coxhoe Athletic changing are changing their name to Spennymoor Town Reserves and will maintain their position within the Wearside League and retaining the affiliation to Durham FA.

The club will continue to use the pitch and facilities in Coxhoe as their home base for the Wearside league games. The Spennymoor Town Reserves management team will be responsible for the combined Spennymoor and Coxhoe squads giving the team an excellent mix of youth and experience to draw on.

Coxhoe Athletic Secretary Paul Charlton said this evening ‘This partnership is something that we have been thinking about for some time now and we are over the moon with the vision and professionalism of the Spennymoor management team and the assistance that they have given us recently.

This partnership has the full backing of the committee and we have thought long and hard about this move, but in the end it was the only way forward for us. Without a manager we have been struggling to bring in new players whereas Spennymoor have plenty of young lads coming through. Combined with the experienced players we have it is an exciting prospect for us and now that we have a way forward I’m really looking forward to the season.’

Paul went on to say ‘Coxhoe Athletic was formed in the 1950′s and it’s rare for a club this size to survive at this level for so long. We have been struggling in the Wearside League in recent times to get the young lads to come and play for us. This partnership gives us a whole new dimension in terms of resources in bringing new blood into the team. This deal is a win win situation for both clubs and I for one hope it continues for a long time.’

It is hoped that the name of Coxhoe Athletic will continue, with discussions being held to bring in a junior team to take the name and be affiliated to the club. This is still work in progress however and details will be announced in due course.

The name change is still being processed and the records will be updated in due course. Until then the Reserves will be listed as Coxhoe Athletic.

Last Match Report

Ossett Town 25th August 2014

Monday, August 25th, 2014
Spennymoor Town bounced back to winning ways with a 3-1 away win at Ossett Town on Bank Holiday Monday. Moors had to come from behind as Joe Tait, John McReady and Stephen Capper cancelled out Ossett’s 17th minute opener by Chris Wood.
 Moors made two changes to the team that was held by Prescot Cables just 48 hours earlier as Kallum Griffiths and McReady replaced Dan Groves and Lee McAndrew.  The game kicked off with both defences on top although Spennymoor edged the possession and went close as Andrew Stephenson fired over a free kick following a foul on Liam Henderson.  Ossett took the lead when Boardman’s shot was deflected out for a corner by Lewis Dodds and from the resulting corner kick Moors keeper Kyle Hayes’ weak punch was met by Wood who looped a header over and over the line despite Moors attempting to clear.
 Moors then regrouped and in the 26th minute McReady released Gavin Cogdon into the area but he blazed over from a good position.  Henderson then went close on the half hour as he met Stephenson’s corner but his header went into the ground and bounced over the woodwork.  Spennymoor were level in the 40th minute through Tait who grabbed his first goal for the club when he tapped home following a goalmouth scramble. It was a fully deserved equaliser by the Moors who went close moments later as Anthony Peacock sent Cogdon clear with just the keeper to beat hut he fired wide of the post.
 Moors had the wind in their sails and took the lead on the stroke of half time when McReady won possession in his own half and ran at the home side to pick out Henderson and the Moors number nine returned the ball for McReady to fire home for a great counter attacking goal.  Ossett started the second half on the front foot looking to get back in the game, although Moors had the ball in the back of the net through sub Michael Roberts from Henderson’s flick on but the linesman’s flag was up for offside.
 Henderson then shot wide of the left hand post from 18yds following good work by Tait and McReady.  The game slowly degenerated into a midfield tussle, and Ossett were asking questions of the Moors defence by pumping long balls into the area which the visitors had to deal with including a penalty appeal for Ossett which was turned away, before Moors stretched their lead in the 86th minute when Roberts crossed to the far post which the keeper Dixon fumbled and Capper was on hand to smash the ball home into the back of the net.  Two minutes later and Ossett were reduced to ten men following an unsavoury challenge by Holt on Henderson, and with a man extra Moors were allowed to play more football and hold possession to see the game out, and end deserved winners on a testing surface.
 Line-Up:
1 Hayes, 2 Griffiths, 3 Mason, 4 Dodds, 5 Tait, 6 Capper, 7 McReady, 8 Stephenson, 9 Henderson, 10 Cogdon, 11 Peacock.
Subs Used:
Roberts on for Cogdon
Lynch on for Peacock
P Johnson on for McReady
Subs Not Used:
McAndrew, Archer.
Att: 204
