First ever history book launched…

kenAfter almost 8 years in its creation  Thursday 14th November saw the official launch of Ken Sproat’s long-awaited
“We’re the Famous Blyth Spartans”.

The hours, days, weeks, months & years of painstaking research and then the writing & rewriting finally came to fruition, the Social Club was full of Spartans supporters and the book was selling quickly from the moment the doors opened, Ken summed up the night saying:
“It’s great to see some many people here, in the build up I was worrying that it would just be my wife and a handful of others that would turn up. Over the years a lot of individual work has gone into producing the book but I’ve also had huge amounts of help along the way. I’m so proud that its now out there and hope everyone loves it as much as I loved putting it together”
