Keeper signs for Blyth

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Adam McHugh has today left the club and signed for Blyth Spartans.

First Team Manager Jason Ainsley told me earlier ‘It is with regret that have had to let Adam leave the club and join Blyth Spartans, but with the arrival of Dan Lowson I didnt think it would be fair to Adam to sit on the bench when he could be playing games elsewhere.  I think Adam is a very good keeper and more importantly a top lad and I wish him all the very best at his new club.’

We would like to endorse Jason’s comments and wish Adam every success at his new club.

Jordan Robinson

Moors first team Manager has tonight released details of a new addition to the squad.  Jason told us earlier ‘Tonight I am delighted to announce the signing of Jordan Robinson on a two year deal with the club.

Jordan has a wealth of experience for a 24 year old having played at Darlington for 2 years and at Wigan Athletic under Roberto Martinez.  He is an excellent player that reads the game very well and is a good passer of the ball and at 6.2″ will be a big asset to us.

When I met Jordan he was very determined to succeed at Spennymoor and even though clubs from the Evo-Stik Premier wanted him he saw the vision with which the club is going and we are delighted to have him on board.’

Jordan added ‘ I decided to join Spennymoor because I want to start progressing again as a player and I think that the club is the best place to do that with the plans they have to move forward.

Having played against them and watched them a few times over the last few years I like the style of play and I think it suits the way I want to play. Lastly the manager has gone out of his way to show me how keen he was to sign me and that is a big motivation in my decision.’

We would like to welcome Jordan to the Brewery Field.

Peter Mann

Moors appoint a new member to the team.

Spennymoor Town Chairman Brad Groves announced today that Peter Mann is joining the team as the clubs Press Liaison. Peter will work alongside the current team and will provide an additional route to the mainstream media to promote the club while also writing articles for release throughout the season.

Peter told us earlier today: “It is an honour and privilege to be afforded this kind of role with Spennymoor Town Football Club.”

“I have provided occasional material on the club for a number of years now forming good relationships with players and management alike so this is the next, logical step. I am delighted that Chairman Bradley Groves has given me the opportunity to act as liaison between the club and the press, whether local or national, as the club readies itself for the 2015-16 campaign.”
“I have already forged a number of contacts to help move the club forward and solidify its relations with the media which will benefit all parties as we look to make the club as much a success off the field as it has been on it in recent years. It is this type of success, and infrastructure that attracted me and people like Brad, Jason and the players are always welcoming – I look forward to working with and alongside you all.”

We would like to welcome Peter to the Brewery Field and look forward to working with him in the coming months.

Other News

Although the season finished weeks ago it has not been a time of relaxation behind the scenes.  Preparation for the upcoming season started before the last ball was kicked on the pitch.

There are a number of initiatives on the go at the moment and, as with previous seasons, there has been another significant investment in the playing surface.  As well as reseeding and verti-draining the surface this year we have seen the introduction of a new sprinkler system.

Ground maintenance is ongoing and we will be looking to supporters to help out with a general tidy up towards the end of the month to which dates will be announced shortly.

Off the park we have commissioned a new website which will raise the clubs profile further.  The new site is being developed on cutting edge technology by our web partners and will allow the site to be easily viewed on tablets and mobiles with regular updates to keep on top of technology changes.

As part of the new website the Club Shop is being developed to allow an up-to-date customer interface and improve online experience.  Customers will have the opportunity to ‘click & collect’ purchases and pick up merchandise on a match day.  Additional features will allow ticket sales and downloadable programmes.  The website will be undergoing testing in the next few weeks and will be ready for the start of the new season.

Season ticket sales are going well but if you have not renewed or bought your season ticket yet, you have less than two weeks to take advantage of the early bird offer which closes at midnight on 30 June.

Season tickets will still be available during July but at the increased price.  All season ticket sales will cease at midnight on 31 July, after which the only option is to pay at the gate.

If you have already applied for a season ticket, we are currently processing the orders and they will be available for despatch or collection at one of the pre-season games so watch out for an announcement nearer the time.

As Spennymoor Town FC want to be representative of the Spennymoor Community, we want to involve more people who want to be part of a journey that started in 2005. The more people we have involved in the club, the more we can share the workload which will help the club to progress and we are constantly seeking additional and appropriately skilled volunteers.

Volunteers do not have to be available to work every home match day but if you are able to help out even just a few times a season this would be hugely beneficial to the club, however possibly the biggest reward of all is the enjoyment of being part of a journey with no limitations in terms of destination

Anyone interested in joining our base of volunteers and would like to discuss the various roles we have on offer then please contact Steven Lawson on 0787 120 6474 or via email to stevenlawson_16@hotmail.co.uk

The boys dominated the Semi-final and goals from Robson Clarey, Ethan Gray, Tom Todd and Kane Hopwood made sure of our place in the final. Deerness Valley won their semi-final against Sacriston to set up an exciting final game.

Again in the final the boys were on top and goals from new signing Harry Dinsdale, Kane Hopwood, Ethan Gray and an unfortunate own goal secured us a 4-0 victory.

Well done to all the boys today, Regan Goundry and Harvey Pickering were outstanding at the back. Charlie Jackson never lost a tackle in midfield and Flynn Dawson never conceded a goal all day. Over the moon with you all boys you have done yourselves and your football club proud.
