When Ashington midfielder Craig Spooner scored a brace in the resounding 4-0 victory over West Auckland last week, it was the first time the midfielder had found the net since the beginning of November when the Colliers won 4-1 at home against Whickham.

Now after being on target in Friday’s 2-1 victory over Newcastle Benfield, the 24 year old has notched three in two games– and says he is ‘loving’ his time at Woodhorn Lane:

“Friday saw another one for my tally – but the most important thing was the three points,” he commented afterwards, “I thought we made it hard for ourselves in the second half especially the last ten minutes or so when they (Newcastle Benfield) pulled a goal back but I’m delighted we clinched the win.”

He continued: “I’ll just take things game by game but I reckon I’ll get more goals as long as I keep getting into the right positions. That’s my target – to score as many goals as I can from midfield and to make sure we are definitely battling for the league but I’m absolutely loving my time here.”
