BERWICK STRANGERS 2 TOON X1 1

Updated '11:30am bells' Saturday 8th September 2012

Last neet the Rangers of Berwick took on a Toon X1 in a hastily arranged friendly @ Shieldfield Park @ 'qwaata to eight bells'.


A resorve/junior side was sent up to Tweedmooth for the match against 'The Borderers' and we lost
2-1 with wor goal comin' from Adam Campbell who put us aheed in the 11th minute with a fine drive from 25 yards oot.
The home side came back though, with goals in the 35th and 75th minutes of the game to win it.

Attendance: 309 (ne one waz fooled that The Toon would send a strong team---hence the low crowd which waz more than 200 less than they got for their leegue game against East Stirling last week!) (520!)

'The Geordie Times' therefore makes ne apologeee for diggin' up wor 'Battle of Berwick' archive match report from 34 years ago in 1978, when the Toon played there---and we have reproduced the story of that day below!

PS: The Atromitos away story from Greece that we have been workin' on 'feverouslee' for the last fortneet will hopefully be published sometime ower the weekend! (fingers and toes crossed!)
