Two weeks after scoring four in the second half of a cup match against Haltwhislte Under-17s, Blyth Spartans went one better at the weekend with a 5-0 win in the league.

Blyth attacked from the start and the first goal was not long in coming when a corner was cleared only to the edge of the box where Jordan Duffy let loose with a thunderous shot.

The second came when a loose ball won in the middle was fed to Sam Johnson who in turn slipped in Alex Robinson who found the bottom left corner.

The first 20 minutes of the second half was Haltwhistle’s best period as they tested Blyth’s defence.

But any hope they had of a come back was ended when Robinson set up Johnson.

The fourth was soon to follow when a pinpoint pass by James Gillie fell to Johnson to complete his brace.

Jordan Yeomans made it five.

Blyth’s defence of Kyle Mills, Jordan Armitage, James Golding, Reece Dobie and Connor May have only conceded in one of their five league games.
