Armstrong Wants Over 1000 At Croft Park

Blyth Spartans are flying in the Vanarama National League North and face a tough Chorley side next.

Alun Armstrong has called on there to be a good turnout for their home games after their impressive start to the season in the Vanarama National League North, writes Tom Feaheny.

They take on Chorley on Tuesday night with Armstrong hoping a good attendance can help them against a side who have picked up form in recent weeks, he told the Blyth Spartans official website.

"They have picked up some great results, we know how tough they will be, Matt Jansen has built a good team, when we are at home I fancy us to beat anyone though.

"I want this place to be rocking, I want 1000 here every week, we are putting on a great show, the more the merrier."

Blyth's good start is in part down to Dan Mcguire finding the net on a regular basis and Armstrong was full of praise for him and Dale Hopson as well.

"He has found his feet in this league, he gets that support, we knew it would take time, for the new lads to adjust with him, Dale included the strikers are doing well, we are getting goals."

Despite being in the play-off places, Armstrong says he is paying no attention to their position.

"I don't like looking at the table to be honest, even after ten games, we haven't played everyone once yet, we are playing well we can't complain."
