Blyth Spartans chairman Tony Platten has issued a statement thanking fans for their backing in Saturday’s game with Chester.
Spartans drew 2-2 with the high-flying Blues in the National League North, and after a difficult start to the campaign, Lee Clark’s side are now out of the relegation places on goal difference.
Platten said: “I would like to place on record a huge thank you to (the) crowd at Croft Park on Saturday versus Chester FC. While the team battled and earned a point against one of the heavyweights in the division, you created a magnificent atmosphere and were right behind the team from the first whistle to the last.
“Croft Park is a brilliant place to watch football and can generate some noise. Bring a friend to sample the atmosphere. They might even join in!
“Despite our difficult start to the season, the crowd have held up well and I thank you for sticking by us and playing your part in our upturn in form. As you have seen, the team have turned a corner over the last month and are playing good football with the help of some new additions.
“In my previous column, I said that our new squad would take time to gel. We are starting to see that now and I thank Lee and his management for their continued hard work.
“I hope to see you a week on Saturday when we host Farsley Celtic in a 3pm kick-off in National League North.”
