Post Gainsborough Trinity Reaction

Time was ticking away quickly as Blyth Spartans went into Saturday’s game with Gainsborough Trinity. Relegation from the Blue Square North was still a possibility with only three games remaining. The Club has never been relegated in its entire history and the prospect of such an occurrence after this season’s hugely successful FA Cup run would make for cruel irony. With Blyth holding on to a precious point at the…

This will sadly see Gary now miss the opening three games of the 2009/2010 campaign.

Post Workington Reaction

On Easter Saturday Blyth striker Anthony Shandran pulled a rabbit out of the hat deftly turning the Workington defence before looking up and stroking the ball home with consummate ease. The goal gave Blyth three points against their Cumbrian hosts – their first away win in eight attempts. Considering last Thursday’s woeful performance at home to Droylsden, which the Spartans lost 2-0, Saturday’s single goal victory was somewhat surprising but…
