Word reaches rushonrock that Quireboys’ duo Spike and Paul Guerin are planning to pen a track to celebrate Blyth Spartans’ best FA Cup run for 30 years!

The Northumberland minnows host Blackburn Rovers on January 5 – a game live on Setanta Sports.

And after last night’s second round replay win against Bournemouth, Blyth-born and bred Guerin is looking at turning around a footie-stytle tune in less than two weeks.

It’s a tall order but the six-string wizard said: “If there’s a chance we can do it we’ll do it. As a Blyth boy I’m dead proud and it’s all the town is talking about. We’re playing Newcastle on Monday and before then we’ll be working round the clock to get this done.”

Spike added: “All he’s been talking about is Spartans this and Spartans that for the past few weeks! But it would be great to do something like this for Paul and everyone who’s followed Blyth’s fortunes for the past 30 years.”
