Statement from the MD regarding post-match scenes

Tony Wilson, Spennymoor Town Managing Director, has released the below statement following this evening’s victory over Darlington FC in the Vanarama National League North.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank both the club officials at Darlington FC and the Durham Constabulary for their assistance following the unsavoury scenes at full time today.

We will be working in tandem with our counterparts at Darlington over the coming days to ascertain exactly what went on with regards to an injury to a Spennymoor supporter.

I’m also very proud to pass on a commendation from the Police concerning the behaviour of Spennymoor Town supporters in the face of provocation.

There is no place in football for the extent of abuse that our officials, management, players and supporters experienced from a minority of Darlington supporters.  It is absolutely a minority who overstepped the mark and we’d like to thank the other Quakers supporters for contributing to a great atmosphere at Blackwell Meadows.

We’re now supporting the Moors fan concerned, whose injury is minor, and deciding on the best course of action moving forward as we ascertain what took place.”
