Johnson Heads Back to Bishop

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

Manager Jason Ainsley has tonight released the following statement:

Tonight we have parted company with Andrew Johnson who has transferred to Bishop Auckland and we wish him well there.

It hasn’t worked out for AJ at Spennymoor and I take a lot of responsibility for that by not playing him as often as he had hoped for but the form and goals of the other forwards was a major factor in that decision and one that I stand by.

AJ will benefit from playing week in week out and he now has that opportunity with Bishop Auckland.

Fisher Signs

Monday, October 13th, 2014

First Team Manager Jason Ainsley has tonight released the following statement:

‘Tonight I am delighted to announce the signing of Nathan Fisher. 
 
The discussions I have had with Nathan over the last few days made it a no brainier for me especially as he was a free agent, Nathan was adamant throughout our conversations that Spennymoor was the club he wanted to join despite several offers from other clubs. 
 
Nathan has not had the best of times for whatever reason at Darlington and sometimes that happens but hopefully he will show everyone what a top player he is and at 25 his best years are still ahead of him. Nathan for me is in a similar situation to what Liam Henderson was in when I signed him, a player that hasn’t played a lot of football but wants to prove that he can score goals for us and if he has the same impact that Liam has given us then we will reap the benefits.’
 
Welcome to the club Nathan

Player Transfer listed

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Spennymoor Town Manager Jason Ainsley has tonight released the following statement

‘Today with a very heavy heart I have agreed to Keith Graydon’s transfer request. 
 
I had a chat with Rash and he quite rightly feels he wants to be playing week in week out which is something especially with the form of the other lads in that area that I can’t guarantee, Rash has brought us many memories in his times with us none more so than last season with the winner in the vase final and his performances throughout previous seasons that I can honestly say that it’s one of the most difficult decisions I’ve had to make. 
 
I still feel Keith would offer us something this season but fully understand at his age and the travelling involved he wants to play local and more regularly. Rash is not only a fantastic footballer but a tremendous part of the banter in the dressing room and will be greatly missed by us all.’
 
Any enquiries are to the manager
