Supporters Club Humbled by Kind Donation.

We take the time to thank Nikki Hughes who has donated a fantastic £1000 to the Supporters Club funds. The donation is in honour of Nikki’s late Grandfather Fred Hughes who passed away on Christmas Eve last year. Most of you will remember Fred was a more than regular presence at matches both home and away and a staunch believer in the work of Supporters Club.

We can’t thank Nikki enough for the donation. 

Fred’s legacy was immortalised in Supporters Club history when his name was added (alongside his late partner Connie Wailes) to the Player of the Year Trophy awarded annually to the Supporters Club voted best player.

Trust in Us 👊🏻

The Supporters Club Executive Committee are open to the idea of exploring the possibility of forming a Supporters Trust.

What’s it all about?

A Supporters’ Trust is an independent, democratic, not-for-profit, community based organisation that seeks to give fans a collective voice in the running of a Football Club

The Trust would be a legal entity, financially regulated called a Community Benefit Society (CBS).

Each member will get an equal say in the running of the Trust irrespective of their position or contribution, one member one vote. Trust members would get to elect the Board at the first Annual General Meeting

The process will be overseen by a steer group and will take time to determine if it is the right decision and fits within our existing supporter landscape. Ultimately it will require a majority vote from a public meeting of supporters to go ahead.

The idea revolves around putting a professional face to the football club, saying…

“We are capable, skilled people with something to offer the football club.”

That doesn’t mean that you’re unable to criticise or be beholden to the football club – as a democratic organisation, the members determine the Trust and the stance towards the football club.

A CBS imposes certain disciplines on a group that can only be a good thing – democracy, accountability and transparency.

Why should we do this, there are already Supporters Clubs or groups established?

Supporter’s clubs or groups whilst being perfectly legitimate often become identified with a small band of individuals and might always seem to be criticising (even if they aren’t in reality!). They are also limited in how they can grow, and how secure that growth is.

The Trust, constituted as a CBS will stay in existence until its members decide to dissolve it, and so they have greater ability to stay around. Often supporters clubs go into a lull when key individuals become inactive. All these are of course applicable to the Trust, but the disciplines mentioned above make it more likely that weaknesses are identified and rectified.

This is a once in a generation opportunity to create a united front for current and future Supporters of Spennymoor Town FC.

Well done lads 👊🏻

Oh, we don’t like to be beside the seaside!

Spennymoor Town FC squeezed the brakes on their play-off charge after defeat to South Shields in the seaside sunshine.

We had every reason to be optimistic, going into the game on the back of 7 straight wins and in front of what was to be an expected strong away support. 300 to 400 Fans rattled in on trains, busses and cars hoping to be served a classic encounter from 2 of the leagues in form teams. 

Away fans were housed in a corner of the ground too small for the numbers limiting the view for many, the stadium was awkward looking, difficult to access, with catering equipped for only a small gathering rather than a thirsty army of supporters looking to make the most of the bank holiday.

The game was like the catering, luke warm and bereft of any real quality. Such a lack lustre performance from Spennymoor meant Shields needed to do very little to win comfortably thus increasing their own aspirations of a place in the play-offs.

It’s hard to criticise the team, given what we’ve seen in recent weeks, but we are fans, we pay our money, we are greedy. If you went to a restaurant, ordered steak but were served corned beef, you’d be less than pleased, no!

All is not lost however, a performance and a win on Monday against Farsley Celtic will rekindle the hope for end of season knockout football, but remember if that does happen we will come up against teams with similar qualities to Shields and a repeat of the levels shown today will definitely not be good enough. 👊🏻

The Graeme Lee Factor

The appointment of Graeme Lee is shaping up to be a shrewd piece of on field business at the Brewery Field. It was reported that Lee was a man in demand around the NLN towards the end of 2023 and no doubt the emotional connection (Graeme’s late father Tony had previously managed the Moors) played at least some part in him opting for Spennymoor ahead of the other potential suitors involved in the mid season managerial merry-go-round late last year.

As supporters or followers of football you can often sense if someone is a going to be good fit very early in to their tenure. That sense of optimism was never evident, to me at least, whilst Miller, the Salford Duo or Dickman were at the helm. Now this is not a criticism of the aforementioned or their ability, Bern and Jonno are now lifting up trees at Radcliffe, and Dickman & Miller both highly respected capable coaches quickly found themselves back in work at the same NLN level. However we only ever looked like a settled side when Jason Ainsley stepped back in to steer the ship.

Now under Graeme Lee, we are seeing shape, energy and most importantly results both welcome and deserved. Even after falling behind in games we see a response. Chances are being created, goals being scored, our goal difference is now neutral and achieved without talisman and captain Glen Taylor. Lufudo often erratic or unpredictable is now operating as a disciplined full back. Staunton has put in performances that sees him a Player of the Year candidate. A sustained run in the starting eleven has brought the best out of an often too shy Corey Mckeown. The arrival of Matty Dolan brings much needed midfield experience, he has hit the ground running, organising the younger players around him and dictating the play. The solid Pollock / Mbeka central defensive partnership instils confidence for others to take risks further up the field and the form table provides proof that Graeme Lee’s work in progress is taking shape quickly and effectively.

For much of the season fans had endured aimless performances with an expectation we’d lose creating in-house conflict between knowledgeable critics and staunch protectors of the football club. Now we enjoy a collective on field appreciation of Lee’s approach, with visits to the Brewery much less of a chore.

On behalf of Spennymoor Town FC Supporters Club and in acknowledgement of the work Graeme and his coaches have done so far, thank you for the football 👏👏

Boston United 1 - 2 Spennymoor Town

Spennymoor Town goalkeeper Brad James performed heroics - including two second half penalty saves - as Boston United slipped to defeat on Saturday afternoon.

James denied Martin Woods and Deji Sotona from 12 yards, after the Moors had raced into a two-goal lead either side of half-time through Corey McKeown and ex-Pilgrim Ben Pollock. 

Jai Rowe did reduce the arrears in stoppage time, but United were left to rue missed chances for the likes of Adam Marriott, Jimmy Knowles, Sam Smart and Brad Nicholson on an extraordinary afternoon at the Jakemans Community Stadium. 

The Pilgrims' profligacy in front of goal was laid bare in the fourth minute when Marriott steered off target and wide following Rowe's inviting cross from the right.

Moors took a 12th minute lead when McKEOWN worked a yard of space to bend a fine, dipping finish beyond the despairing dive of Cameron Gregory from 25 yards. 

Smart motored clear in response, but crashed an effort into the side-netting.

The Pilgrims started the second half brightly, with Knowles striking the post and then Woods seeing his follow-up brilliantly blocked by Pollock. Woods subsequently delivered a free-kick from the left flank and Nicholson fired a gilt-edged chance over the bar from six yards. 

Spennymoor ultimately made the points safe nine minutes into the half when Danny Greenfield delivered a corner, which United failed to deal with, and POLLOCK slammed home the loose ball. 

United were awarded their first spot-kick when John Lufudu bundled over Knowles at the back post and James brilliantly denied Woods, before thwarting Smart and Sotona on the follow-up.

Pollock was later penalised for handball, with Sotona stepping up from 12 yards - only to be denied by James. His follow-up hit the back of the net, but was harshly ruled out after referee Darius Bradley deemed the keeper had control of the loose ball. 

James made an excellent save to deny Kelsey Mooney, before finally being beaten in the third minute of additional time when ROWE powerfully headed home following Ethan Sephton's cross from the left. 

Boston (4-4-2): Cameron Gregory; Jai Rowe, Michael Bostwick, Brad Nicholson, Ethan Septhon; Sam Smart (Keziah Martin 73), Jordan Richards, Martin Woods, Deji Sotona (Michael Gyasi 78); Adam Marriott (Kelsey Mooney 59), Jimmy Knowles. Subs (not used): Keaton Ward, Dylan Hill.

Spennymoor (4-2-3-1): Brad James; John Lufudu, Lebrun Mbeka, Ben Pollock, Dan Myers; Matt Dolan (Sam Fielding 81), Isaac Fletcher (Finley Shrimpton 74); Danny Greenfield, Rob Ramshaw, Corey McKeown; Will Harris (David Moyo 78). Subs (not used): Donald Chimalilo, Michael Ledger.

Referee: Darius Bradley.

Attendance: 1,570 (42 visitors).
