North East rivals spur each other on in thrilling title race

“If you think the Premier League and Championship title races are exciting, then it’s nothing compared to the battle to top this season’s Evostik Northern Premier League. North East rivals Blyth Spartans and Darlington 1883 enter the final stretch locked in a fight that’s almost certainly going to go down to a final day decider on April 23rd. Blyth, managed by local lad Tom Wade, are more renowned for their FA Cup giantkilling acts down the years while former Sunderland defender Martin Gray’s Darlington are a phoenix club formed in 2012 from the ashes of the former league club whose fortunes took a terminal nosedive after the folly of ex-chairman George Reynolds and their white elephant of a stadium.” Football Pink
