The Brewery Field to host prestigious schoolboys fixture

Spennymoor Town FC is proud to announce that The Brewery Field has once again been chosen to host a prestigious international fixture.

Following extensive improvements to its ground since 2018, the club will host England Schoolboys Under 18s game vs Scotland at The Brewery Field.

The announcement is the latest in a series of high profile visits to Spennymoor following the England Ladies team in 2019 and Austrian national side last month.

The club were set to host England Schoolboys Under 18s game vs Republic of Ireland in April 2020, however, the fixture was cancelled due the coronavirus pandemic.

Supporters who purchased tickets for that game are eligible to swap their ticket for the newly announced fixture.

Tony Wilson, Managing Director of Spennymoor Town FC, said: “There has been a monumental amount of work gone in from our team off the pitch over the last year to improve our infrastructure, facilities and matchday offering. 

“I’m thrilled to say that this is now bearing fruit with this wonderful international occasion for a non league football club. 

“England Schoolboys’ football conjures images of some of our country’s most famous players, including the likes of Michael Owen.  With the importance we put on our academy of more than 600 young people of all ages, abilities and genders, hosting this prominent fixture is a massive deal.

“This isn’t just for the football club or Spennymoor.  We’re working hard to put County Durham on the map for football and having these big organisations of international importance in Durham brings a boost to the whole region.  We’re working on our relationships with all of the country’s footballing bodies and hope to be involved in more national football going forwards.

“Make no mistake, we’ve done plenty of squad building and physical building over the last few years at our club.  We’re now building the club’s reputation in other ways, and, coupled with the visit of the Austrian National side and Lionesses, this is the latest milestone that the club can be proud of.”

A date for the fixture, along with ticket information, will be released in due course.
