Blyth Spartans have announced that central midfielder Callum Little has joined the Blue Square Bet North club .
The 22-year-old started his career at Newcastle United, but following his release at St James` Park he moved to FC Emmen in the Earste Divisie, the second tier of football in the Netherlands.
Since his return to the UK he has been appointed a coach at Newcastle United Academy. He has been training with the Spartans for the last few weeks and took part in the training game with Blyth Town, where he scored in a 5-1 win.
Manager Tommy Cassidy commented: “Callum has showed well in training and in the couple of training games that we’ve played in recently. He’s an attacking midfielder, who can play either side and looks promising. I’m pleased to have got him on a form and hopefully he can do the business for us.
“He’ll be involved this weekend in some capacity, we only had fourteen fit players when I took over at the club and now with a couple of new signings, like Callum, and the return to fitness of a couple of others, we will hopefully head to Altrincham on Saturday with nineteen fit players, which is a good sign.”
