The result of Anthony’s sending off at Hyde United means that he will miss our last 2 games of the season, Southport at home and Burscough away as well as the first game next season.
Spartans U9s drew with Forest Hall Reds on Saturday 11th April, with Joe Todd scoring our goal and Byron Ramsay picking up the Man of the Match. We are now currently third in the league with two games remaining.
If Hyde Utd are defeated in tonight’s home clash against title chasing Southport and Blyth manage a victory on Saturday over Gainsborough Trinity, (who were beaten 0-1 by Hyde last Saturday), the Spartans will virtually be assured of BSN football next season, bar losing a 19 goal difference advantage over Burscough.

Following on from Gary’s red card against Redditch United, that we see the popular defender miss 4 matches (the remaining games of this season, as well as the opening game of next), his booking in the recent Vauxhall Motors game was also his 10th of the season, meaning an additional 2 game ban. This will sadly see Gary now miss the opening three games of the 2009/2010 campaign.
