13th October 2019

Blyth Spartans Reserves crashed out of the Northumberland FA Senior Benevolent Cup at the hands of Ponteland Utd, who play in the Bay Plastics Premier Division, one league above the Reserves.

31st August 2019

Blyth Spartans Reserves maintained their 100% start to the new season and remain top of the League following their fifth consecutive win. Blyth have been free scoring in their first four games, so Wallsend set up a two bank defensive wall in the hope to stop the attack minded Spartans. This tactic worked effectively as the young Spartans struggled to break through the Wallsend defence. Much of the visitors attacks…

A selection of images by Bill Broaadley from the Reserves final game of the season against Hebburn Town U23, which saw them run out convincing winners by five goals to nil.

Midfielder Kieran Green was a despondent figure after Blyth Spartans’ 3-1 defeat at the hands of Brackley Town on Saturday afternoon, and issued a rather unusual rally cry to his teammates. “We need to just be boring,” said the 21-year-old who’s first half tenacity led to the opening goal, “we are either on top of the world, everything is going for us, getting the rub of the green or nothing…
