THE first of three straight at home on the way this evening as the Magpies (15th, 21pts) welcome old rivals Spennymoor Town (16th, 20pts) to the Chorley Group Victory Park Stadium.

Andy Preece’s side put one of the league’s last remaining unbeaten home records on the line against a Moors side once again under the guidance of Jason Ainsley following a managerial switch in late September.

We’ve got the chance to respond quickly after Saturday and that’s exactly what we’ll be looking to do. Our home record is good and it’s something we’ve got to continue with if we’re to move up towards the playoff spots – Andy Preece

Spennymoor Town (

  • Founded 2005 (Originally 1904)
  • Manager Jason Ainsley (since Sept 2022)
  • Last Season 10th in Vanarama National League North (60pts)

Last Season

Matt Urwin during November’s FA Trophy shootout

This time last year a bitterly cold rearranged FA Trophy second round tie in County Durham ended 0-0 before Moors’ won the shootout.

Earlier this year our league encounters saw tomorrow evening’s visitors prevail 2-0 with goals scored by Glen Taylor and Mark Anderson on each occasion.
