Following an update by Chairman Brad Groves at the supporters meeting the latest details are as follows:

We expect to have all of the funding in place by the end of December which will allow the work onsite to start in January. The aim is then to have the building ready for a big pre-season launch. We are looking to invite a major club to play a pre-season friendly on the launch day.

There are still commercial and grant opportunities available which will allow us to reach the target but we would encourage everyone who is intending to take out a membership to do as early as possible as that will help reduce the funding we need to find over the next few months.

The figures are now moving every week and we expect to be able to update the total again at the end of the month.

The current funding stands at £179,500.

Adam McHugh

First Team Manager Jason Ainsley announced details of another player joining the club.  ‘I am delighted to have signed Adam McHugh who is a free agent after leaving Forest Green Rovers in the summer. Adam was hoping to secure a contract at Tranmere Rovers which didn’t materialise last week so I was delighted that he chose to join us over a number of clubs that have been chasing his signature.

Adam is 22 and is a Spennymoor lad who again fits the profile of the type of player I want to bring to the football club, lads who still want to go far in the game and bring that professional attitude which is what is required at this level. I spoke to various people including Sam Russell who rate Adam very highly. We welcome him to the club on a 2 year contract and wish him every success with the club’

Adam made his debut  for the Moors against Salford today keeping a clean sheet.

At the same time Dan Taylor has signed for Newcastle Benfield.  We would like to wish Dan every success with his new club.

Richie Archer signs.


Spennymoor Town Manager has this evening released details of a new signing – Richie Archer.  Jason said tonight ‘I am delighted Richard has signed a contract and I believe he will be a great acquisition for the club.

The dedication and hard work he has put in over the past 12 months has paid off for him and he has a bright future with Spennymoor Town Football Club.  He is a local lad that has come through our ranks and gives the whole academy a big lift as it proves the club have a system that is working.  Last season Richie won the player of the year award and captained the reserve team, however what’s pleased me most about Richie is his desire to do succeed and wear the Spennymoor shirt.

I kept a close eye on him last year and after speaking regularly to both Carl and Paul I involved him with the 1st team towards the latter stages of last season. Unfortunately due to an injury and work commitments we didn’t get to see him play in the team.

Through-out pre season Richie has done very well and thoroughly deserves his contract, It’s now up to Richie to force his way into the team and I hope he is the first of many to come through the ranks which is now starting to bear fruit.’
