Blyth Spartans AFC are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Cedric Main.
The 25-year-old joins the club having recently played for local side South Shields where his hold up play, pace and eye for goal were assets to the Mariners.
Main began his career in Holland representing a number of youth sides most notably FC Groningen before moving to Spanish outfit CF La Nucía. He then moved to England, joining FC United before moving to South Tyneside to join South Shields, where he worked under Spartans boss Graham Fenton.
Upon signing, Main said, “It’s great to be here, obviously I knew the manager already and it was an easy decision to make. I had a very good relationship with Graham at South Shields, and it was a no-brainer to come and work with him again.
I would describe myself as a strong player, a creative player who likes to assist and score goals. I can’t wait to play in front of the Blyth supporters and showcase what I’ve got.”
Speaking about his new signing, Fenton said, “I brought Cedric in to South Shields a year ago, he had an injury that set him back, he had his rehab and now he’s raring to go again.
We had strong competition from other clubs so we are delighted to be able to bring him into Blyth Spartans, he’s a really powerful, strong, quick forward who’s excellent at linking play and he possesses a goal threat too, so he will definitely add competition to places in the forward line.”
