Spennymoor Town supporters and their Manager are well aware that if things were different, they would be saying goodbye to their legendary leading scorer in a few weeks’ time.
School teacher Glen Taylor has been handing out lessons to defenders for years.
“Make no bones about it,” his manager Jason Ainsley said after convincing his striker to sign a new two-year deal in January.
“If Glen didn’t have a great job and a baby, we would be losing him this summer.
“There has been plenty of interest from National League and Football League clubs so we’re lucky his life has a great balance.”
We’ve all seen players’ form dip once they get a new deal, but Taylor was never going to tail off.
After 19 goals last year in this division, he has 25 to his well-respected name this time around.
He says: “Happiness comes before the status of being able to say you are a professional footballer”, and Spennymoor fans will drink to that.
Taylor has it made after securing the National League North Player of the Year. Now he wants promotion to go alongside it.
