Knowing The Opposition

The Gaffer:

Jason Ainsley

Jason was appointed manager in the summer of 2007 and has now managed the club in over 600 games, winning four promotions, five league titles, two domestic cups and the FA Vase in 2013.  The 47-year-old is a former player, captain and assistant manager of Spennymoor in various spells from 1989.  He also played at Hartlepool United, Barrow, Blyth Spartans and Gateshead, before having spells in Singapore and Australia as a player. The 2018/19 signals Ainsley’s 12thseason in charge of the club, making him one of the longest serving managers in the country.


One to Watch:

Glen Taylor

Taylor is a big, strong, and technically adept goal scorer who is a former FA Vase winner with Whitley Bay, and scored more than 100 goals for Ashington.  He grabbed plenty of headlines during the 2016/17 season, when he scored 19 goals to finish top of the pile for Moors and secure his place in the Jamie Vardy Academy over the summer. Upon returning to the club after the summer break, Taylor took his form to the next level, scoring four times in his first five games in the National League North. He went on to find the net over 20 times and caught the attention of clubs across the league and beyond. Taylor won a number of accolades at the club’s end of season awards, winning ‘Player of the Year’, ‘Player’s Player of the Year’ and ‘Top Goalscorer’.
