Spennymoor Town to face the Magpies

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

The Moors have today released details of the final piece of the pre-season jigsaw.

We are pleased to announce that we will play Newcastle United U21’s at the Brewery Field on Wednesday 13th August in what will be the final friendly game before the season starts in earnest away to Padiham on the Saturday.

Steve Lawson, Spennymoor Town Director of Operations said this evening ‘The opportunity to play Newcastle United is another great occasion for the players and management to test themselves against what will be a stern opposition, It also shows that the club are going about their business in the correct manner in being able to attract them to come to the brewery field.’

First team Manager Jason Ainsley went on to add ‘Newcastle coming to the Brewery field tops off a mouth-watering set of pre-season friendlies and not only does it give our supporters the opportunity to watch premier league players at close quarters but also a chance for our players to test themselves against the best.

Our relationship with both Kevin Ball at Sunderland and Peter Beardsley at Newcastle is very strong and for them to send teams here on a regular basis shows 1 how far the club has come off the field in a short period of time and 2 the fact that they know we try to play football the right way and that it will be a good workout for them.

I hope the supporters turn out in force to watch such quality opposition. ‘

The game will kick off at 7:30pm on Wednesday 13th August and admission is £4 / £2 Concessions.


Peter Jeffries signs for Blyth Spartans

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Spennymoor Town have today confirmed the transfer of Peter Jeffries to Blyth Spartans of the Evo-Stik Premier Division.

First Team manager Jason Ainsley said earlier ‘It was always going to be difficult keeping two top quality goalkeepers happy and I thought we managed that well last season unfortunately I didn’t think this year with travelling a lot further we are in a position to keep both Kyle and Peter so we wish peter all the very best at Blyth and thank him for helping us win the northern league last season.’

Peter made 36 appearances last season following his move from local rivals Bishop Auckland where he spent five seasons and twice swept the board at the end of season awards.

We would like to wish Peter every success at his new club from everyone at the Brewery Field.

Flight MH17

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

There will be a bucket collection at the Hamilton game on Thursday night for the families of the two Newcastle supporters who lost their lives when the plane came down over Ukraine.

John Alder and Liam Sweeney were travelling to watch Newcastle’s tour of New Zealand when their flight crashed.  Mr Alder, 63, and Mr Sweeney, 28, were among 298 people killed when Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 came down last Thursday.

When tragedy strikes anyone in this game traditional rivalries are put aside which was highlighted when Sunderland supporters raised over £15k this week in tribute to the Newcastle lads.
