NEWS: Ainsley's rallying call to North East football fans

Spennymoor Town manager Jason Ainsley has issued a rallying cry to the people of Spennymoor and the North East ahead of his side’s play off semi-final on Tuesday night against Nantwich Town.

                                                                                                                          

The County Durham side secured home advantage by rounding off their season with a 2-0 win over Barwell on Saturday, finishing in second place in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division.

 

The semi-final will kick off at 7:45pm on Tuesday 25 April at The Brewery Field, Spennymoor.  Admission costs the same as regular season games: £10 for adults, £6 for concessions and £3 for children.  Although, Spennymoor Town season tickets will not be valid for the game.

 

Now in his 10th season as manager, Ainsley has overseen three successive play-offs in the Northern Premier League.  Moors were successful last season, securing promotion

 

from the Evo-Stik Division One North, and would love to repeat that achievement, starting with a win over fifth-place Nantwich Town on Tuesday.

 

Ainsley said: “Tuesday is a huge game and one we are really looking forward to with our home advantage.  But we must make it count and have The Brewery Field rocking.

 

“We have had some massive games here over the years and the fans have always come out in force and been the 12th man.  Tuesday night will hopefully be no different.

 

“We have had a great season after finishing runners up in the league and reaching the FA Cup First Round Proper.  But we don't want to it end here because our ambition is to be in the National League North.  We’ll need your support - it can make a huge difference."

 

If Spennymoor beat Nantwich they will play either Stourbridge or Workington in the play off final at The Brewery Field on Saturday 29 April 2017.
