The 20-year-old said: “It’s great to be joining Blyth Spartans – it’s a club with a lot of history. Being from Morpeth, I have known the club growing up, so for my first loan to be here is a good feeling. It’ll be good to get out on the pitch and get some experience. It’s a big opportunity. I’m hoping to achieve a lot on the pitch while I’m here. It’s a fresh squad, and I want to help them push for the highest league position they can.”

Woodman, 22, yesterday joined Championship club Swansea City on a season-long loan.
