Haway Blyth !!!

Blyth Spartans continued their FA Cup run on Friday, and earned their place in the 3rd round thanks to the 2-1 win at Hartlepool United

I'll not go over the match ( you can read it elsewhere on the web ) and we had a bit of luck, and our keeper pulled off a couple of great saves , but suffice it to say we did Blyth and non-league football proud !!

Haway Blyth !!

Howay Blyth !!

Well done to the mighty Blyth Spartans whose FA Cup run continues.

Following yesterday's 4-1 win against Altrincham, Spartans go into tonight's 2nd round draw ( which will be shown on BBC2 at 7pm)

The Blyth team yesterday were magnificent, and the two goals each for Robbie Dale and Dan "Nippa" Maguire were outstanding. Robbie has scored in every cup round on this run, which in itself is a great achievement.

Who do I want us to draw in the next round? Wrexham, at home. There is some unfinished business to take care of .....
