Spennymoor Town have bid farewell to long-serving defender Kallum Griffiths after taking the opportunity of full-time football at York City.

The 28-year-old right-back has certainly proved to be a very popular figure during his nine-year stay and while making 389  appearances and claiming nineteen goals at The Brewery Field.

Griffiths would soon have been due a well-deserved testimonial there but has instead decided upon accepting the challenge of reviving a once proud Football League club at Bootham Crescent.

York boss Martin Gray has regularly labelled himself as “a winner” and his latest signing also clearly brings with him those attributes.

The defender already claimed Northern League Division One titles in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014, the Durham Challenge Cup in 2012, the JR Cleator Cup in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and the Northern League Cup and FA Vase in 2013.

He’s now set to fill a problem right-back slot for City after former Motherwell and Oldham Athletic defender Josh Law regularly failed to live up to expectations last term.

The Minstermen also tried another ex-Latics player in the position, Connor Brown, but he was subsequently released upon competition of the worst season in their history.
