Cuggy was a three-time Wembley winner as assistant boss at Whitley Bay

Blyth Spartans have parted company with manager Steve Cuggy after seven months in charge at Croft Park.

Cuggy, who took over from Mick Tait in May, has won just two of 20 league games to leave the club bottom of Blue Square Bet North.

The former Sunderland player had been successful working as assistant boss to Ian Chandler at Whitley Bay, winning the FA Vase three years running.

Spartans are yet to confirm plans for Saturday's trip to FC Halifax Town.
