....James Novak from Ebac Northern League First Division side Bedlington Terriers.
The defender, who played against the Spartans for the Terriers in last season’s FA Cup, is well known to new assistant-manager Paddy Atkinson, who was delighted that the player had put pen-to-paper: “I’m really pleased to get James on board. He’s a really a really good full-back and is blessed with terrific pace and I think that he’ll thrive at against better opposition.”
The former Team Northumbria man was also pleased to have moved to Croft Park: “It’s good to get things sorted and to move to Blyth. I’ve always been keen to play at the highest level possible, so when the chance came to sign for the Spartans, I jumped at it.
“I’m really looking forward to getting into the pre-season training and getting the season started.”
