Spartans to pay homage to long-serving Dale
Blyth Spartans have announced that the club’s annual ‘Sportsman’s Dinner’ will be slightly different this year as they pay homage to our Captain Robert Dale as part of his testimonial season.
Dale, who scored twice in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League club’s FA Cup Third Round exit at the hands of SkyBet Championship club Birmingham City, was described earlier this season, in The Times newspaper, as “the best non league player never to turn pro.”
There will be a panel of speakers to take part in a question and answer session. The panel will be current manager Tom Wade, former manager Harry Dunn, club legend Ritchie Bond and of course the guest of honour Robert Dale.
There will also be an auction of sports memorabilia and a charity raffle with funds going to a charity of Dale’s choosing.
In addition the evening will feature a Chinese Buffet as a change to the usual fare. The night’s events will also be supported by a top rated comedian.
The event will take place on Friday the 24th of April in the Club House at Croft Park.
