TOMMY Miller has lauded his Spennymoor Town players for their commitment to the cause after last night’s FA Cup win over AFC Fylde.

The part-time Durham side beat the full-time Lancashire outfit by a goal to nil thanks to Glen Taylor’s first half penalty. They’ll face Southport in the third qualifying round.

Miller reminded the media that his players have other commitments outside of the football cub but was full of praise for their commitment to getting a result and sealing a safe passage through to the next round despite their commitments elsewhere.

Miller said: “For a part-time club, they train very well when we have them in on Tuesday’s and Thursday nights.

“But they also do little bits away from here as well to look after themselves. Don’t forget, half of these lads have been at work today so they’ve come here tonight and put on a performance like that and a shift like that.

“I’m so proud and delighted we’ve gone through.

Moors have made a strong start to the season with five wins from eight games in all competitions. The club have ambitious plans to seal promotion to the National League at the earliest possible chance and are expected to be in the play-offs regions this season.

They’ve only tasted defeat twice this season at the hands of York City and Leamington.

Miller added: “I keep saying this but I look back and the two defeats we should never have got beat, but that’s football.

We’ve moved on quickly and responded in the right way. We didn’t sulk.

“We knew we were playing well and creating plenty of chances and kicked on again.

“I;m delighted with every single one of them. Even the lads on the bench as well who are ready to come on. I know they didn’t get on today but they are waiting for their chance.

“I’ve got a fantastic bunch of lads.”
