Morpeth swoop for Sean Reid

Newly promoted Morpeth Town have signed midfielder Sean Reid from Blyth Spartans.

Reid, 27, will link up with the Highwaymen for their debut season in the EVO-STIK League Premier Division.

He said: “I feel like this club has ambition and a drive for success. Being a part of that sounds exciting.”

Reid scored 66 times for Blyth in 187 appearances, playing for them in National League North last season.

Morpeth chairman Ken Beattie said: “This is a real statement of intent on our part and we are delighted Sean has joined us.

“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.”

Assistant manager Jon McDonald said the club was quick to act when they heard a deal could be possible.

“Sean is a player we have admired for some time,” he said.

“As soon as we learned Sean might be available, we didn’t hesitate. This represents an excellent signing.”
