Spartans visit Sam Wrightson

The Spartans have acknowledged the courage and determination of a young Blyth boy who was involved in a terrible accident.

Sam Wrightson meets the Spartans

10 year old was knocked over by a car a couple of weeks ago as he was going home from Horton Grange First School on Cowpen Road.

He had to be resuscitated seven times before he was rushed to hospital with serious head injuries including a fractured skull, a broken cheek bone, broken nose and a chest injury.

Blyth boss Tom Wade along with players Matthew Wade and Robbie Dale visited Sam and his family to present him with a signed Spartans shirt (donated by the Supporters Club).

“Sam is doing really well now,” said his mam Sarah. “He’s still off school and he hates it! Plus he loves football but can’t play football again for Blyth Rangers for another five months so it’s very frustrating for him. He’ll have to wear a head guard when he does get back to playing.”

Everyone at Croft Park wishes Sam a full and speedy recovery!
