Sport In Blyth, Northumberland
The home of Blyth Spartans - The most famous Non League football club!
Croft Park is home to the lengendary non league club Blyth Spartans. Founded in September 1899 by Fred Stoker, he thought it appropriate to name the team after the Greek Spartan army in the hope that the players would give their all as they went into battle on the field of play.
Blyth are most famous outside of the town for their forays in the FA Cup, having reached the first round proper of the FA Cup 31 times, the second round 14 times, the third round 4 times, the fourth and fifth rounds once.
Clad in their green and white stripes they have a regular turnout of 500+ supporters each home game.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
