The former Newcastle United youngster joined on a non-contract basis last month and has excelled in Green and White colours.  Roberts’ form, as well-documented, has attracted interest from the EFL, leading to speculation surrounding his short term future.  However, the 22-year-old has decided to commit by signing a contract with the club to delight…


Interview | Clark on ‘huge’ Curzon clash

8th October 2019

Manager Lee Clark has talked up the significance of Blyth Spartans’ National League North trip to Curzon Ashton on Saturday.  Following two consecutive wins against The Nash and AFC Telford United, Blyth’s dip in performance levels was punished by Hednesford Town in a 4-2 FA Cup exit at the weekend.  With a new management team and a practically a new squad, Spartans feature in the early relegation places with five…

Interview | Evans: We let the fans down

5th October 2019

Right-back Rhys Evans admitted Blyth Spartans did not give the travelling fans the performance they deserved.  Supporters from Blyth, Cannock and elsewhere formed an excellent away end at the Keys Park as Lee Clark’s side slipped to a 4-2 defeat to Hednesford Town.  Callum Roberts’ double wasn’t enough for Blyth as a Kieran Morris’ brace, plus goals from Reece King and Danny Glover inflicted an FA Cup exit at the…


Departure | Orrell leaves Blyth Spartans

27th September 2019

It is with disappointment that Blyth Spartans announce the cancellation of Jake Orrell’s contract by mutual consent.  Orrell, after signing from Newcastle Benfield in the summer, appeared in 10 of Blyth’s 13 games in all competitions this season.  The decision to release him from his contract was made reluctantly at the player’s request. We wish Jake well for the future and thank him for his efforts as a Blyth Spartans…


Chairman’s column | Platten addresses start to season

18th September 2019

I’m a little surprised by the start to the season, it’s a bit strange. Pre-season went well with some good results and we were scoring goals, so there were positive signs. But the step up from the Northern League for some of our younger players is a big jump.  Stitching a side together virtually from scratch, is never going to be easy but we are bringing in more experienced players…


Arrival | Ex-NUFC midfielder Hunter joins

12th September 2019

Blyth Spartans are pleased to announce the arrival of former Newcastle United central midfielder Jack Hunter.  The 21-year-old was released by the Magpies last summer, despite often captaining the under-23s, and was quickly snapped up by Gateshead for the 2018/19 season.  He soon established himself as a first-team regular at the International Stadium, appearing 37 times as The Heed just missed out on the National League play-offs. “I am delighted…


Interview | Clark on Spennymoor defeat

12th September 2019

Blyth Spartans manager Lee Clark believes the 5-0 defeat to Spennymoor Town was difficult to assess after Joe Robson’s 13th-minute red card.  James Roberts raced in-behind Robson with a tug on the shoulder from the defender seeing the Moors attacker fall to the ground and the referee show no hesitation in handing him his marching orders.  From the free-kick, Stephen Brogan directed his 20-yard effort past Mark Foden before Adam…
