Spartans’ presentation to returning Callum

THERE was a special guest at Croft Park for Blyth Spartans’ game against AFC Fylde recently.

Season ticket holder Callum Brown was in the crowd to watch the team after returning from undergoing a life-changing operation in St Louis in the United States.

Callum had actually caught everyone by surprise by attending the Doodson Sports Cup fixture against North Ferriby United the previous Tuesday, despite only returning from the US a few days earlier.

To mark his return, on Saturday Callum’s favourite Spartans player, Phil Airey, presented him with a card that had been designed and made by match day steward Alan Courtney and was signed by the players and management.
