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”
It is the first ever book about the clubs completer history but it is not
just a must read for Spartans fans, but for anybody with an interest in the town, it is a the story of a football club that made the town famous.
Documenting football in the town from before Blyth Spartans were even founded to the current day it also provides unique insight into local Non League football in the region.
