Alun Armstrong: Southport game could have gone either way

27th October 2018

Alun Armstrong admitted Blyth Spartans’ huge win at Southport could have gone either way – believing it was a low-quality affair. Robbie Dale’s in-swinging corner on 52 minutes caught keeper Dan Hanford off guard in what proved to be the winner at the Merseyrail Community Stadium. Prior to kick-off, just three points separated the pair in the bottom four of the table but Dale’s only goal of the afternoon lifted…

Alun Armstrong: “We’ve played a lot better and lost.”

2nd September 2018

Alun Armstrong was in a jubilant mood yesterday evening after goals from Sean Reid and Jarrett Rivers secured Spartans’ second win of the season against a very competitive Altrincham side.

Defensive crisis deepens for Spartans

20th August 2018

Alun Armstrong was left ruing “the worst injury list” he’s ever seen after Aaron Cunningham suffered an ankle injury in Saturday 3-1 defeat at Alfreton Town. The Hartlepool United loanee – who has impressed during his three game in the side – was forced off with the score at 1-1 early in the second half, forcing a re-jig of the side. “It’s looks like he’s rolled his ankle,” suggested Armstrong…
