Pop Up Ticket Office – Darlington Ticket Sales

In an attempt to give Darlington supporters every opportunity to purchase a ticket for the game on Tuesday night, Spennymoor Town will create a Pop-Up Ticket Office at Heritage Park on Saturday when the Quakers play their first home game of the season.

Chairman Brad Groves said today ‘Ticket sales have been going very well for the game and we are just about where we thought we would be but I want to be fair to everyone and give them a chance to get a ticket for the game if they have not been able to get through to the ticket office or buy them online.’

The Pop Up Ticket Office will be set up close to the Turnstiles at Heritage Park and will open at 1:30pm.

Spennymoor Town Reserves – Coxhoe Athletic Partnership announced

Spennymoor Town Chairman Brad Groves has revealed details of a new initiative which sees Spennymoor Town Reserves entering into a partnership with Coxhoe Athletic.

Spennymoor Town Reserves have resigned from the Durham Alliance and Coxhoe Athletic changing are changing their name to Spennymoor Town Reserves and will maintain their position within the Wearside League and retaining the affiliation to Durham FA.

The club will continue to use the pitch and facilities in Coxhoe as their home base for the Wearside league games. The Spennymoor Town Reserves management team will be responsible for the combined Spennymoor and Coxhoe squads giving the team an excellent mix of youth and experience to draw on.

Coxhoe Athletic Secretary Paul Charlton said this evening ‘This partnership is something that we have been thinking about for some time now and we are over the moon with the vision and professionalism of the Spennymoor management team and the assistance that they have given us recently.

This partnership has the full backing of the committee and we have thought long and hard about this move, but in the end it was the only way forward for us. Without a manager we have been struggling to bring in new players whereas Spennymoor have plenty of young lads coming through. Combined with the experienced players we have it is an exciting prospect for us and now that we have a way forward I’m really looking forward to the season.’

Paul went on to say ‘Coxhoe Athletic was formed in the 1950′s and it’s rare for a club this size to survive at this level for so long. We have been struggling in the Wearside League in recent times to get the young lads to come and play for us. This partnership gives us a whole new dimension in terms of resources in bringing new blood into the team. This deal is a win win situation for both clubs and I for one hope it continues for a long time.’

It is hoped that the name of Coxhoe Athletic will continue, with discussions being held to bring in a junior team to take the name and be affiliated to the club. This is still work in progress however and details will be announced in due course.

The name change is still being processed and the records will be updated in due course. Until then the Reserves will be listed as Coxhoe Athletic.

Season Ticket Sales Update

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

The final figures for the Season Ticket offer were reported to the monthly Board Meeting last weekend.  We had previously reported a 200% increase in the sale in the season tickets.  However the ticket sales continued to rise after that point right up the deadline day when we were still receiving applications through the evening.

In the end the number sold based on last year has risen a magnificent 400% which has blown everyone’s expectations out of the water.  Needless to say the Board are very impressed with the supporters and would like to express their collective thanks to everyone who has taken up the offer.

The total number issued this season is 229.

The final batch of Season Tickets will be available at the Newcastle game for collection.  The tickets can be collected from the Club Shop.  Following that, any remaining tickets will be posted out to the address on the application form.

In a similar vein, the Chairman in particular, is delighted with the uptake of the Supporters Club offer.  With the number of members currently standing at 85 and rising every week, the Supporters Club has a vital input into the way the club is run.  Everyone has the opportunity to speak to the Chairman on a match day but the Supporters Club is a means of representing the wishes of the supporters as a whole so it is a vital link in the chain.  The Supporters Club voted in a new Chairman and Committee recently and the club are looking forward to working with them in the coming season.

Membership of the Supporters Club does not have a deadline date so new members can join at any stage of the season.

The package on offer is second to none at £10 and includes:

A £10 gift voucher to be for use in the Club Shop
Professionally printed membership cards (credit card size)
2 drinks vouchers (for use in the Moors Bar)
Preferential treatment for ticketed league and cup games.

Supporters Club Members are also eligible to a 10% Discount on Club Travel to away games.

Membership forms will be printed in the programme for the first few home games or can be downloaded from the Club Website Downloads page:

Craig Lynch signs for the Moors

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Craig Lynch Signs

Spennymoor Town have tonight released details on another player joining the club.

First Team Manager Jason Ainsley told us earlier today ‘ I am delighted to complete the signing of Craig Lynch who has been with Sunderland for a number of years and has just been released by Rochdale.

At 22 Craig is another player who I believe will bring quality to our team, he can play in a number of forward positions and across midfield which will be beneficial throughout the season. Craig fits the profile of the type of player I like, he is technically very good and is a very good finisher, Craig is used to travelling and wants to hopefully progress with us.
 
There may be some movement going out from the club before the season starts as were probably one or two heavy at present.’
We would like to welcome Craig to the Brewery Field.
