Club Statement – Newton Aycliffe Friendly

The decision not to continue with the friendly fixture against Newton Aycliffe was made during half time by the Spennymoor Town management team.

The team didn’t play the second half over concerns about the aggressive direction the match was taking and the management decided it was a risk to the players to continue.

The club is in full support of this decision as we consider the welfare of our staff and players as a top priority.

We’d like to apologise to the fans who travelled to watch us, which we are always grateful of, and hope they understand the reasons behind the decision.  We have also come to understand that the original gate price that the club had agreed was increased on the night of the match, a decision taken outside of our control.

We look forward to our next pre-season friendly on Saturday at Ossett Town.
