Spartans sign former Sunderland player Craig Lynch

Former Sunderland player Craig Lynch has signed for Blyth Spartans from Spennymoor.

The 22-year-old from Durham was with the Black Cats between 1999 and 2014 where he made two first team appearances under manager Martin O’Neill.

He then spent some time on loan at Hartlepool United and a short spell at Rochdale before joining Ebac Northern League outfit Spennymoor at the start of this season.

Lynch has played up front and on the wing but prefers a centre midfield role.
