White Keen On Glory With Spennymoor

New signing Alex White says there was one defining reason for joining Ebac Northern League Division One club Spennymoor Town this summer – to win silverware.

The 24-year-old centre-back (pictured), who can also play in the left-back position, has joined Moors from Evo-Stik League side Whitby Town.

And the ex-Hartlepool United trainee, from Chilton, says he wants to add to Spenny's glorious FA Vase victory last season.

White told "I'm very excited.

"With what the lads did last season, it would be nice to carry that on and get the FA Vase Final again and win the league this season.

"The club is looking to win promotions and push on, there's a lot of ambition, and the main driving force for me is to win things."

As well as versatility, White also brings a lot of experience despite his relatively young age.

Two-and-a-half seasons with Whitby has followed spells with Workington, Ilkeston, Blyth and Stranraer after beginning his career with Pools.

Boss Jason Ainsley said: "I felt with Leon and Bobby struggling a bit towards the end, we need a bit of stability in there.

"Alex has got great pedigree and won every award going at Whitby. He's going to be a tremendous asset.

"He can play left-back or centre half, so he's adaptable, which can only help during the course of the season."

White enjoyed his first day of training during a gruelling work-out at Crossfit DL2, followed by another work-out at Peterlee College last Saturday.

"First day back is always going to be hard work," said White.

"You've got to blow the cobwebs out after five or six weeks off, so you need to push yourself to get that base fitness for the pre-season games in readiness for the start of the season.

"It's also great for team morale. The lads have a bit of banter, but it's all good craic in good spirits.

"The more games you have the better, for me. Match practice is as good as anything."
