Whitby Town moved into the top six of the Evostik League Premier Division after Graeme Armstrong’s last-gasp goal gave them a 2-1 win over old foes Blyth Spartans.

Robert Dale put Spartans in front midway through the first half of the Boxing Day clash, but Shane Henry soon levelled for the Blues before Armstrong struck just three minutes from time against his old club.

It was Whitby’s fourth league win in a row. On Saturday (Dec 28) they entertain Matlock Town, 3pm kick-off.
