Blyth Spartans are indebted to all who contributed to the Crowd Funding campaign for an overnight stay for the players and playing staff. This will be used for our upcoming fixture away to Gloucester City on Saturday 20th January. The target was £1,500, we achieved £1,510 on the final day of the appeal, this is indeed a fantastic achievement!
Manager, Jon Shaw commented. “It goes without saying that as a club your support is vital. Myself, the staff, and the players hugely appreciate what you have done in allowing us to have a stopover for one of our longest trips. This undoubtedly creates the conditions that provide the physical and mental focus for the players to perform to their maximum capability, it also brings the players closer together and builds up moral. An overnight stay will help us so much and we can’t thank you all enough”.
This means that we will have two overnight stays, including our last match at Bishop’s Stortford, where we came away 3-1 winners. This game was generously financed by an anonymous long-term supporter, to whom the Club is extremely grateful.
Importantly, the number of individuals who have contributed to the fundraising appeal is testimony to the commitment of our supporters, especially in the current economic conditions. Blyth Spartans would like to thank all that donated their hard-earned cash, for their generosity, whether anonymous or named.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the following:
Malcolm Kirby, Matthew Hurren, Charlie Cook, John Davey, Allan FitzGerald, Kellie Mackenzie, William Clouston, Kenneth Ellis, Susan Graham, Anthony Seghini, Ian Young, Mark Scott, John Roper, Martin Surtees, Peter Hardy, John & Pat Johnson, Garry Bens, Zanzibar Spartan, York Spartan, Steads, Lee Goodwin, Alan McLean, Ronald John Hope, Lewis Paxton, John Stoker, Stephen Nendick, James Rennison, Doug Thompson, and all the anonymous individuals.
