Cassidy looks ahead after Solihull postponement

BLYTH Spartans manager Tommy Cassidy was disappointed that Saturday’s Blue Square North fixture against Solihull was postponed before focusing his attention on this weekend.

“Yes, I was looking forward to the game on Saturday, but a frozen Croft Park pitch put paid to it,” he said.

“After a few good performances, missing the opportunity to build on them has knocked us back a little.

“But we must concentrate now on Saturday coming when we entertain Histon.”

The boss was hoping to arrange a friendly for Tuesday evening to keep the squad ticking over and to look at a couple of players.

Cassidy has signed former Newcastle United midfielder Callum Little who has impressed in training.

“People say we need a goalscorer – and it’s true, but we also need more strength at the back,” he said.

“That’s why we signed Joe Kendrick from Mansfield last week on loan till the end of the season. I’ve known Joe for a few years. He’s a solid defender with a good left foot.”

The game against Histon kicks-off at Croft Park at 3pm.
