Arrival | Jordan Watson returns to Blyth Spartans

Blyth Spartans AFC is thrilled to announce Jordan Watson has returned for his third spell with the club. 

The 28-year-old defender first joined Blyth from Sunderland and was a part of the side that reached the third round of the FA Cup during the 2014/15 season. 

He left to join Darlington in 2016 but made a quick return to Croft Park. Watson then became one of a number of Spartans players to make the switch to the Quakers, two years ago. 

Watson has built up a strong relationship with the club and fans after supporting him through his injuries in the past. 

In total, he has made 151 appearances for Blyth – and will now add to that tally in the upcoming National League North campaign,

Watson said: “If I look back at my career, being at Blyth during that cup run is probably the highlight of my career. 

“I always have a love for the club and the fans, so it was a no brainer really when I was asked to come back.”

Michael Nelson, manager of Blyth Spartans, said: “Jordan is a solid defender who can cover more than one position which will be a big benefit to us. 

“He has had previous spells with Blyth and is well known to the fans and the staff here. 

“He will provide some strength and experience to our back line and hopefully play a key part in a successful season for us.”
