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.


Spennymoor Town Season Ticket Sales up 200%

Monday, July 21st, 2014

Since the launch of the Season Tickets back in May the number of supporters applying for Season Tickets has increased by more than 200%

At £100 for an adult ticket and £42 for a junior / concession ticket the prices remain exceptional value for what we hope will be another exciting season at the Brewery Field.

Club Chairman Brad Groves commented ‘ We wanted to send a strong message out to the supporters that the cheapest way of watching the club this season was to buy a season ticket and it looks like that message has been welcomed as the response has been magnificent.  There is still time left to apply and I believe that there is more to come.  There is a real buzz around the town at the moment and this shows me that the supporters are backing the clubs push for the five year plan to achieve three promotions in five years.’

The season tickets will be on offer up to and including 31st July 2014 after which the offer will be closed. This leaves supporters with a just over a week to get their applications in to the club so we can have everything processed ready for the start of the season.

Adult tickets are available for ages 16 to 60, while concessions are for anyone 60 and above. Junior tickets apply to ages 6 to 16 and as mentioned previously under 6’s will be admitted free of charge.  Postal applications will also be accepted and forms are available on request from the club.

Applications can be made via email at Spennymoortownfc@aol.com, by filling in an application form available either by download from the website, at a pre-season game, or by calling 07770 500593.

A passport sized photograph is required or you can email a digital ‘selfie’ for your season ticket which will only be valid for league games.

For anyone wishing to pay on the gate for regular league games, an Adult admission ticket will be £8 while a Concession ticket will cost £5. Juniors under 16 will pay £3 and kids under the age of 6 will be admitted free of charge. Members of Spennymoor Youth will be admitted for £2 on production of their membership card.


Thursday, July 17th, 2014

The Evo-Stik League has today released the highly anticipated fixtures for the Moors first foray back into the Northern Premier league for some 10 years.

We will open the season with a trip to Padiham in Lancashire on Saturday 16th August followed by an early meeting with local rivals Darlington 1883 at the Brewery Field on the following Tuesday for the first home game of the campaign.

August Bank Holiday Monday sees us on the road again, away to Ossett Town with the Yorkshire club making the trip to Spennymoor on New Year’s Day.  Other key dates see us on the road again on Boxing Day at Harrogate RA with the reverse fixture at the Brewery Field on Easter Monday.

Manager Jason Ainsley said this morning ‘Waiting for the fixtures to come out has been very exciting and certainly worth the wait.

After viewing them it starts to hit home what a very difficult league this is going to be with some outstanding and well established clubs, but also one that we should look forward to and relish rather than be fearful.

To start with an away fixture at Padiham, a ground I have never been too is what we have all looked forward to since the chairman took over the club, it will bring that sense of the unknown and an opportunity to test ourselves against very good opposition.

Our first home fixture against Darlington 1883 is going to be a night to remember with a massive crowd hopefully turning up to the brewery field like the last time we played them and watching two top teams battle it out so early in the season.

To have been very fortunate to have played for and managed Spennymoor it will give me enormous pride leading the team out on August 16th after 10 years waiting for it to happen and one I hope the supporters will travel in numbers to watch an historic occasion as they deserve this as much as anybody.’

Steve Lawson, Operations Director went on to add ‘When the fixtures are released it is always a great feeling for the supporters to see who and when we have certain teams, some look for the derbies, some look for teams and places they enjoying travelling to or facing at home.

The club is making great strides and through the summer we have been concentrating on developing areas which we feel need enhancing further and with only four weeks or so to prepare for the Darlington game doesn’t give us much time to put everything in place so it’s going to be a busy period for us.

We will be having a meeting this weekend to discuss the requirements for the game and come up with an action plan to ensure everything runs smoothly on the day.’

Alex White joins Celtic Nation

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Spennymoor Town have today released details of the transfer of Alex White to Celtic Nation.

First team Manager Jason Ainsley said this afternoon  ‘To be fair to Alex it hasn’t really worked out here and that wasn’t necessarily down to Alex,  but the form last season of Chris Mason who had a fantastic spell and was a major factor in us winning the league.

I did feel Alex would have a greater impact but unfortunately it didn’t work out that way. He is a good player and a superb lad who I’m sure will be a success with Celtic Nation.

I wish him all the very best in the future.’

We would all like to offer Alex our best wishes and every success at his new club.
