Seasiders Aim For League Double as Moors Arrive

By Andrew Snaith

Tonight gives Whitby an opportunity to secure a league double over County Durham rivals, Spennymoor Town.

Like the Blues, Spenny saw their match postponed, on Saturday, they were due to host Rushall Olympic.

Jason Ainsley’s men knocked the Blues out of the FA Cup 1-0, only to succumb by the same scoreline, in the league, three days later, again at their Brewery Field home, thanks to Dale Hopson’s late winner.

The Moors arrive fresh from a 2-1 win over runaway leaders Blyth Spartans, in front of nearly 1,000 people, which saw them jump into fourth spot. Whitby are currently eighth, a point outside the play-off positions in a heavily-contested Evo-Stik NPL Premier.

Tuesday is the first competitive meeting, at the Turnbull Ground, with the Spennymoor Town club, formed out of the ashes of Spennymoor United and Evenwood Town, in summer 2005.

Admission at the Turnbull Ground is £10 for Adults (accompanying under 16s admitted free), senior citizens £6 and Under 18s £3. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
