Ebac Northern League Second Division leaders Blyth AFC have announced the signing of former FA Vase winner Steven Anderson from First Division side Dunston UTS.

Anderson played at Wembley with Morpeth Town in 2016 and lifted the Vase after the Highwaymen beat favourites Hereford FC.

The 27-year-old made thirty-one appearances and scored 8 goals for Morpeth last season – 234 appearances and 74 goals in total during his five-year tenure at Craik Park – before moving to Dunston last summer.

“Anders is a great addition to the squad,” joint-manager Jon McDonald told the club`s Andrew McDonnell. “He’s quick, aggressive and good in front of goal. He’s an FA Vase winner with Morpeth, so has experience of playing in important games too.

“I’ve worked with Steven for four years, when he was a young lad at Seaton Delaval and then at Morpeth, where he was a crucial part of the squad that helped us get promoted from Division Two of the Northern League.”

McDonald worked with Anderson for four years at Northern Alliance side Seaton Delaval and then at Morpeth as Nick Gray’s assistant.

The winger played a pivotal role in the side that got promoted out of the Second Division back in 2013 and McDonald believes that will help the team in the final 10 games of the season.

McDonald added: “At this stage of the season, we felt it was important to add to the squad. There’s going to be a lot of games in a short space of time.

“Anders will bring additional quality to an already strong group and that’s a massive plus for the club as they look to achieve their goals this season”.
