Management team to be presented at Guiseley fixture

Spennymoor Town’s new management team of Anthony Johnson, Bernard Morley and Steve Halford will be formally introduced to The Brewery Field crowd before Saturday’s game against Guiseley.

The trio took over in mid December and have overseen one win, two draws and one defeat in their opening four games at the club.

Three of those fixtures were played away from home, with only Steve Halford present on the touchline for the home game against Darlington on Boxing Day due to Johnson’s touchline ban and Morley’s positive Covid-19 case.

Saturday’s clash with Guiseley represents the first time the full management contingent will be present, and the club will be marking this occasion with a short presentation before kick-off at around 2.20pm.

Johnson, who praised his players’ attitude and application following the 1-1 New Year’s Day draw with The Quakers, said: “It’s been a whirlwind so far since we came in. We’ve had more games than training sessions!

“We’ve had five games in the space of 18 days and met so many new people and it’s been a case of trying to put names to faces.

“Because of the intensity of the schedule we’ve not had time to sit down and take a deep breath up until this week, and we will reflect and analyse the performances so far and work hard at training ahead of Saturday.

“Guiseley are a well organised team who don’t score many goals as they don’t commit too many bodies forward. It will be common for me to say this, but every game in this division is a tough one, no matter where they are in the league.

“It will be the first time we’ve all shared the dugout at The Brewery Field on Saturday and I look forward to speaking to the crowd and hopefully kicking off 2022 at home with three points.”
