Spennymoor Town Match Preview

Following The Holy Blues’ emphatic 2-0 win over North Ferriby, attentions turn to this Saturday’s clash, which sees Gainsborough travel up the A1 to National League North newcomers Spennymoor Town, who have certainly stamped their mark on the League. Talking to Gainsborough Trinity TV on Monday after the win over North Ferriby, boss Dave Frecklington highlighted just how vital the win was, especially when rival clubs continue to struggle picking up valuable points.

"Playing Leamington at the start of the season, who I don’t think will be down there for long with an experienced manager, but we have roughly eight clubs who we know we can compete with in terms of where we are at."

Frecks also expressed just how unpredictable this League can be on any day. "We know on the day anyone can beat anybody, as FC United beat York City. On any given day such as Harrogate we give teams close games, as we got beat 5-4 and they’re now flying in the league. So on any day if you’re not right, set up correctly or prepare to work hard you can come unstuck but as we’ve seen in the first seven games, this group work hard every week and whilst we might come up short in terms of quality, it’s not for the lack of endeavour and desire."

As previously mentioned, The Lads travel North to Spennymoor Town who have climbed the English pyramid at a rqpid rate. They were promoted for the third time in four years beating Stourbridge in last season’s EvoStik Premier Division play-off final. A well drilled side who recently beat local rivals Boston United 3-0, Frecklington admitted Saturday’s test will be tough, but expects his players to work tirelessly as they did against North Ferriby. "Any game away in this league is tough, and they’re a very well drilled sided. They’ve come up, bought well and got Ryan Hall from Curzon Ashton, someone who was lively against us last season. We will take a lot of confidence from the North Ferriby result and prepare on Thursday for another tough test."

Spennymoor also have several vastly experienced players in their squad, who dropped down the leagues to play for Jason Ainsley’s side. One of those players was Jamie Chandler. The all-action midfielder joined Spennymoor from Gateshead, after making over 150 appearances for The Heed. Chandler also received man of the match at Wembley, in the FA Trophy after beating Mansfield Town. Another recruit from Gateshead was 6 ft 4” defender James Curtis, after being released in 2016. The experienced centre back made just under six hundred appearances during his time at Gateshead, and earned his testimonial against Newcastle United.

We cannot begin to describe how much the support means to the Managing team and The Lads, so make sure if you’re going to The Brewery field you make plenty of noise and back the team. #Inittogether
