"PIT YAKKERS IN TOON!"
|"THE RAIN LASHES DOON @ BLUE FLAMES!" |
(HENCE THE BLURRED PICTURE!)
took on 'The Pit Yakkers of Ashington' in the qwaata finals of The Northumberland Senior Cup @ Blue Flames (aka Whitley Park)
For some reason we wore wor orange away strip and Ashington wore their black 'n' white stripes, despite us bein' the home team?
'The Pit Yakkers' had been in brilliant form, havin' put SIX past Penrith on Saturday and SEVEN past Bishop Auckland last midweek!
But this didn't stop The Toon's Aussie midfielder Brad Inman from inflictin' a 2-0 defeat on them with two fine second half strikes in the pourin' rain and wind in front of a sparse crowd!
Attendance: 317 (includin' at least 150 Pit Yakkers!)
The Toon resorves now face the mouth waaterin prospect of a possible visit to 'Team Northumbria' in the semi finals, which is just doon the road from Blue Flames and is the anly groond left in the competition that we havvent been te before! (Newcastle Benfield and Bedlington Terriers are the otha semi finalists---two groonds we've previously visited!)
