Club Statement | Spartans to hold minutes silence

The club has been contacted by a number of supporters with the devastating news that several long-term fans have sadly passed away over the last 18 months.

Covid-19 restrictions have meant funeral arrangements have also been curtailed with only limited numbers allowed to attend.

To allow everyone associated with Blyth Spartans AFC to pay their respect, we will be holding a minutes silence at our opening home game against Alfreton Town on Saturday, August 14.

If anyone knows of any Spartans fans that have sadly passed away during the last 18 months, we ask they pass their names onto general manager Mike Coulson, either by email at mike.coulson@blythspartans.com or telephone 01670 352373 between 9am and 12pm weekdays.

The names will then be read out over the PA syttem prior to the minutes silence as we remember them.

Tony Platten
Chairman of Blyth Spartans AFC
