"ANOTHA ONE OFF 'THE LIST'!"


The B2 Net Stadium is aboot a 20 minute waalk from the train station and aa have to say that aa was impressed with their new groond and with FREE! admission!---(wot more cud yi want?)

With just fower minutes gone The Toon's Sami Adjei took a tumble in the box which resulted in, (wot can anly be described as) a dubious spot kick with justiable protest from the Chesterfield players.
Sami took the kick himsel but it was a tame effort which was easily pushed away by the home keeper.

The Crooked Spireites (they've got a dodgy lookin' chuch spire in the toon centre!) then took the lead in the 11th minute when Sodenburg in The Toon goal cud anly help a Scott Boden heeder into the net.

We levelled things in the 33rd minute when Yven Moyo hit a sweet shot past the home keeper and there was a smatterin' of claps and cheers from the fifty or so Toon fans who were 'groundhoppin' as well! (we're NOT the anly sad ones!)

Chesterfield then bombarded the Toon goal but couldn't add to their anly goal and we went in aall square at the break.

'The Crooked Spireites' again bombarded wor goal in the 2nd half but again couldn't get past Sodenberg who had an excellent game and we were lucky (to say the least!) to get a draw,aalthough Toon captain Brad Inman did come close on a couple of occasions late on, but on the whole it cud anly be described as a lack-lustre performance from 'the black 'n' whites'! (apart from wor goalie!)

It was then onward to Nottingham for the 2nd part of wor double heeder! (see match report below!)
