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.
