Spartans boss Tom Wade praised the fans following the conclusion of his side’s historic FA Cup run.
“The supporters have been incredibly passionate and devoted throughout the run,” he said. “We couldn’t have achieved what we have without them. What we need now is their continued backing as we try and push on in our league fixtures. We should be a club like FC United of Manchester. We should be as big as them with the support we can muster.
“In the Cup games the atmosphere the crowd generated was outstanding and really quite moving. At Hartlepool and before the Birmingham game the roars which went up when the players applauded the crowd after the warm ups were unbelievable!
“It’s been an amazing time for everyone at Blyth Spartans. We should all be very proud, whatever part we have played in helping shape this latest chapter in the history of our proud club.”
