With manager Alun Armstrong leaving the club for Darlington, Blyth Spartans say they are currently considering legal advice over his departure for their National League North rivals.
The former Ipswich Town striker was officially unveiled as Darlo’s new boss this morning, but Spartans have now released this statement:
Alun Armstrong informed Blyth Spartans Association Football Club on Sunday 19 May that he intended to leave the Club while under contract. The Club is currently considering its position, taking legal advice, and will make no comment about Alun’s departure, at this stage.
The search for a new manager now starts and the board will continue to work in the best interests of the Club to ensure that its objectives for next season are protected.
