The club have received a notification from the FA, following a report by the match referee in relation to a pitch incursion by a Blyth supporter following our goal at Curzon Ashton.

Blyth Spartans are absolutely delighted to announce Callum Roberts has signed a contract with the club. 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…

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 | Clark disappointed after FA Cup exit

Manager Lee Clark spoke of his utmost disappointment after Blyth Spartans exited the FA Cup to Hednesford Town on Saturday afternoon.  The 46-year-old was brutally honest after his side’s 4-2 defeat at Keys Park, conceding that the hosts were fully deserving of their progression into the Fourth Round Qualifying. Clark alluded to Blyth’s struggles in the set-piece department after three of The Pitmen’s four goals followed from corner and free-kick…


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…
