After completing back to back promotions last season, Morpeth Town have made a real statement of intent ahead of their first campaign in the Northern Premier League by bringing in Sean Reid from Blyth Spartans.
The 27-year-old has previously featured for the likes Ryton and Crawcrook Albion, as well as West Allotment Celtic, but made his name in Non-League during his four years with Spartans, where he found the net 66 times in 186 appearances.
Speaking to Morpeth’s official club website, the midfielder said, ““I feel like this club has ambition and a drive for success,” said the midfielder.
“Being a part of that sounds exciting.”
Meanwhile, the Highwaymen chairman Ken Beattie added, “We’ve moved quickly to bring in a top-quality player who can add goals to a side which already has a fantastic scoring record.
“We’re confident he will be a valuable addition to the squad and one that can help us achieve our ambitions in the Evo-Stik Premier Division.”
Reid will likely act as a direct replacement for David Carson, after the former Blackburn Rovers Under 21 captain left Morpeth for Inverness CT last week.
