News | General Manager appointed

Blyth Spartans are delighted to welcome back Mike Coulson from Gateshead, who will be taking up the position of General Manager. 

Spartans advertised for a new GM after Anthony Seghini decided to step down after three seasons in the role at the end of the season. 

Mike will work along Anthony over the next few weeks before taking over fully at Croft Park. 

Mike previously fulfilled the role at Community Director at Croft Park.

A statement from Mike reads: “I accepted my first official position with Gateshead FC in 1999, as assistant secretary to Arthur Waggott.

“Since then, I have been secretary, general manager and at one stage owner of the club. 

“There have been many “ups and downs” during my career and I have had the privilege of working with some dedicated and hard-working people all working towards achieving football league status for the club. 

“At this stage of my career I wanted a new challenge and was honoured to be offered the position of general manager with Blyth Spartans. 

“This allows me to renew old friendships while continuing to work at a high level in the non-league game. 

“I would love to see my old club regain their position in the National League while working behind the scenes helping Spartans to retain their league status.”
