WATCH THE GAME LIVE
The hectic start to the season continues on Saturday as Moors look to make it three wins in a week following victories over Bradford (Park Avenue) and Farsley Celtic.
Tuesday evening’s 2-1 win over Farsley marked the first time Spennymoor had claimed maximum points from their opening league fixture since 2017 when a David Foley strike downed Stockport County.
Despite a nervous ending which saw the Yorkshire side, who played the second half with ten men following the dismissal of goalkeeper Steven Drench, come close to an equaliser late on, Moors deservedly began life at The Brewery Field behind closed doors with three points.
Alfreton were one of four teams to commence their league campaign on Monday as they drew 1-1 at Curzon Ashton. James Jones’ goal on the stroke of half-time cancelled out Dominic Knowles’ effort as the contest ended all square.
The Impact Arena has been a happy hunting ground for Moors since promotion to the National League North, with three wins from three, thirteen goals scored and just two conceded representing a dominant record.
Rob Ramshaw scored four times against Billy Heath’s side in 2019/20, netting both goals in the 2-0 win away from home in November 2019 before chipping in with a further two in the reverse fixture in February, a 5-0 Moors win.
