Spennymoor Town striker Glen Taylor has hailed the standards at the National League North club.
Taylor has established a reputation as one of the most lethal marksmen in non-league, reaching a century of competitive goals for Spenny earlier this year. While there has been obvious interest in his services in the past, the former Ashington man has remained with ambitious Moors.
Speaking as part of his in-depth conversation with this site, Taylor paid tribute to the all-round efforts at the club:
“Even when we were in the Evo-Stik, we had Leitchy, (David Leitch) who’s the secretary/kitman, in a full-time role, so just the little bits of detail, like asking what size kit you want. I know that doesn’t seem like a big deal but obviously you want to feel decent on the pitch.
“The nutrition before a game. The club’s unbelievable, to be honest.
“You get lads that come into the club who’ve played in the League and they’re blown away by how professionally the club’s run. The chairman’s obviously invested a lot of money into the club, the stadium’s improved. Honestly, everything’s just well looked after, everything’s thought of, from your nutrition on the bus beforehand, to half-time and after.
“The chairman does a yearly trip to Marbella, which might not seem relevant to football, but to get all the lads together after a tough season, it’s an amazing trip that all the lads just thrive on and we really appreciate. There’s not a part of the club that I think could be run better, to be honest.
“Everyone that does a job does it really well, so it’s just trying to get the club to the next level. ”
