According to the Blyth program the owner has invested half a million quid in the club,surely that's to be applauded.


Why not put it in Spartans and get them in the Conference.


There were noises that he wanted to buy in at Blyth a few years ago, before he get involved at Blyth Town. For whatever reason, that didn't happen. But given the shenanigans with the ground at South Newsham, splitting up into two clubs and now the move to Ashington, I'm delighted he never got near the Spartans.

There is no way he could have spent half a million quid. On what, an NL2 budget for a few seasons?



They certainly don’t have. NL2 budget

Location: Blyth - home of the famous Spartans.
He wanted to get ‘involved’ at the Spartans by apparently a promise of rebuilding the large Broadway Terraced stand and incorporate a gym facility from which a charge per use was levied and apparently wanted £1 back everytime it was used by someone.
However it was pointed out that that is against the leasesholfd the club have on the land on which the ground stands.
Bear in mind he is a builder/businessman and as always they want some return on their investment.
