Blyth Spartans AFC want to thank Damen Mullen for his service to the club after it was announced today he has left Croft Park.
Mullen, 31, first joined the club in 2013 and has since gone on to make 243 appearances across seven years in Northumberland.
Excluding a brief spell at Morpeth Town in 2016, ‘Damo’ has been an ever-present face around Croft Park and a larger than life character in the dressing room.
He, of course, was a leader on the pitch too, often acting as stand-in captain in the side over previous seasons.
Damo has played a key part in the club’s success in recent years.
He was a part of the Spartans side that reached the third round of the FA Cup in 2014-15 before going on to lift the Northern Premier title, three years later.
Tony Platten said: “With a new manager and a new season, compounded by the extraordinary financial circumstances created by Covid-19, it is always a difficult decision as to which players will be retained and which will be released.
“The case of Damen Mullen is a classic case. He is a player who has given exceptional service to the club over many years with over 200+ appearances – including some memorable FA Cup and promotion winning seasons.
“We would like to thank Damo for his outstanding service to the Blyth Spartans and wish him well for the future. Damo will always be welcomed at Croft Park.”
Blyth Spartans wholeheartedly thank Damo for his outstanding effort and commitment to the club over the last seven years and wish him the utmost best for the future.
