This book charts the historic cup run of non leagure football team Blyth Spartans in the 1977/78 season, when they got through to the 5th Round, and narrowly missed out on going even further!
Signed by the author in the title page, and including a foreword by Sir Bobby Robson, the book recounts every match Blyth played as they progressed from the 1st qualifying round all the way to a 5th round tie against Wrexham. Robbed of victory away, they played the home tie replay at St James Park in Newcastle, and the place was packed.
Blyth Spartan fans have never forgotten this momentous time in the clubs history, and this book tells the whole story....
Condition of the book is generally good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, and some light nibbling and creasing along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound
