THE BLAYDON RACES 150th ANNIVERSARY TRAIN!

Posted '9:00pm bells' Wednesday 6th Joon 2012

Wor very own Alan Shearer named a train 'BLAYDON RACES' @ Newcastle Central station this mornin' to commemorate the anniversary of this great song, written by Geordie Ridley in 1862 which iz of course the 'Geordie National Anthem'

Big Al said: "Blaydon Races is a much loved north east anthem, best known threw (er! sorry 'THROUGH!) it's association with Newcastle United Football Club who's fans have made it their own!
From my own playing days at St James' Park I know how inspiring the sound of 50,000 Geordies singing The Blaydon Races is!
It's the ultimate signature tune of the Tyne, and now it's name will be seen throughout the East Coast Main Line!"

Saturday the 9th of Joon iz of course 'the big 150th borthday' of this famous song----and may it live on for ever more!
(Much more on The Blaydon Races celebrations az the week gans by!)
