Reserves Game this week at the Brewery Field

Monday, March 16th, 2015

Spennymoor Town Reserves have a fixture at the Brewery Field on Wednesday night against top of the league Stockton Town.  The game will kick off at 7:30

Entrance Fee £2 Adults & £1 Concessions and Spennymoor Town Season tickets are valid for this game.

The Reserves are also playing Cleator Moor Celtic on the 25th March at the Brewery Field with prices and admission the same.

Reserve Team Manager Carl Beasley said earlier  ‘We are looking forward to be playing back at The Brewery Field for the 2 games which will help with our fixture backlog.

You can’t beat a mid-week game under the lights at The Brewery Field and with the games against title favourites Stockton Town and fellow promotion chasing Cleator Moor Celtic, I’m hoping we can continue our good form and the players would love your support’

Carl went on to say ‘These are really important games for us and it would be great to get some extra support for the lads so if you fancy seeing the reserves in action on the 18th and 25th then that would be fantastic’

Its an ideal opportunity to get behind the reserves and even better value if you are a season ticket holder.

Board Announcement on the Clubhouse Development

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Following a Board meeting on Friday 13th February it was decided unanimously that the Clubhouse project should not proceed at this stage and the scheme be re-assessed over the coming months.

The key factors behind the decision are as follows.

  • The level of borrowing required to fund the gap between the private investment and the total cost of the project would not only put the clubhouse scheme in jeopardy but the football club as a whole.
  • Expiry of the Football Foundation grant offer.
  • The lack of private investment from the club fan base has also raised a concern about the desire to have the facility in place.

The clubhouse project is not dead but the current proposal is not viable at this time. It will be re-examined and added to the other future major projects that we currently have in the pipeline. These projects are as follows:

  • New drainage system for the field
  • Field levelling
  • 2 Additional stands
  • Changing rooms / Facilities at the Tudhoe complex.

The Football Foundation grant can be reapplied for and the Town Council have agreed to extend the lease to a period longer that the fifty years required. Alternative build configurations will now be investigated as will alternatives to the finance option.

Chairman Brad Groves said after the meeting ‘When I first got involved I spent a lot of time and effort clearing the debts of the club and I stated at the time that I would never put the club in a position that would risk its long term future. I believe that the decision was the best course of action at this time but we have not ruled out building the clubhouse. The project is still on our list of developments.’

Moors sign another player on loan

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Spennymoor Town Manager Jason Ainsley has this evening released details of another loan signing to the club.

Jay told me earlier ‘Today I am delighted to have secured the services of goalkeeper Luke Coddington on a months loan from Middlesbrough FC.

Adam Mc Hugh is struggling with a shoulder injury after the Kendal game, I didn’t want to be in a position where we were left short so the opportunity to being Luke into the club was fantastic and will bring healthy competition to Adam & David Atkinson’

He went on to say ‘Luke has represented England at U17 U18 & U19 level and is a very talented young keeper with experience of non-league football and I hope he enjoys his time with us. I would like to thank Middlesbrough FC especially Paul Jenkins the U21 manager for allowing Luke to join us’.
We would like to welcome Luke to the Brewery Field.
