Blyth Spartans have agreed deals for next season with midfielders Damen Mullen and Craig Spooner.
Mullen, 30, is no stranger to Croft Park, having played for a number of years, surpassing 200 appearances for the club and was a vital cog in last season play-off contending side:
“It’s been a long summer,” said Mullen on signing the new deal, “Obviously was a bit up and down at the end of the season, but good to get it sorted now.
“I’ve missed the first couple of weeks of pre-season, to be fair my wife has just had our first child, hence I’ve come in a bit later than I expected.
Mullen lauded the signings Lee Clark has made this summer, and is impressed with the calibre of talent at the club:
“There is a lot of young lads in the dressing room, loads of energy in the side and pace, there is no point on dwelling on what happened, we’ve got a new team,
“It’s a new start and we’ve just got to get going into the new season.
After a successful trial with the club, Clark has also secured the services of Craig Spooner, a Newcastle United product who played his football at North Shields last season.
