Newton Aycliffe to face Darlington and Spennymoor Town

Newton Aycliffe will host both Darlington and Spennymoor Town in pre-season.

The Northern League club have revealed their friendly schedule and it sees them play five games before the season kicks off on July 31.

Colin Stromsoy’s men will host Tommy Miller’s Moors on Tuesday, June 29 at the Beaumont Landscapes Stadium for the second successive year after Glen Taylor’s penalty settled an entertaining tie between the two back in August.

Darlington, managed by Alun Armstrong, head to Aycliffe on Tuesday, July 6.

Quakers played at Aycliffe in the summers of both 2010 and 2011, with the games attracting attendances of 1,307 and 822 respectively.

Aycliffe will travel to Manchester to take on Abbey Hey, and welcome Tow Law Town to the Beaumont Landscapes Stadium along with another high profile home game against South Shields on Tuesday, July 13.

Stromsoy said: “I can’t wait to get started. I think we have put a great squad together for the forthcoming season and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do this year.

“The schedule is designed to get us in the best shape possible for the start of the season with some games of real intensity to look forward to so that we can implement our philosophy successfully and hopefully get off to a strong start as we did last year.”

The club has also announced season ticket prices for the campaign have been frozen with supporters holding season tickets for the curtailed 2020-21 season eligible to continue using them for the new season.
