"I'm pleased to get things sorted," Dale told the club websiteexternal-link.

I'm obviously really happy at Blyth, so I had no hesitation in signing up for another season."

Spartans appointed former Whitley Bay coaches Steve Cuggy and Gavin Fell as manager and assistant respectively last month, and the duo have signed several new players including Wayne Phillips and David Coulson.

"The two new lads in charge have impressed me so far and have some interesting ideas, so I can't wait for the season to get going."

Meanwhile the club have also signed 20-year-old Whitley Bay goalkeeper Tom Kindley.
