THE HEEDBANGERS 3 THE FISHY FINGERS of GRIMSBY 1 *** PLAY OFF SEMI FINAL 2nd LEG

Posted '12:10pm bells' Monday 5th May 2014

"HEEDIN' FOR WEMBLEY!"


40 years to the day that NUFC lost in the FA Cup final to 'The Liverbirds', anothaa Tyneside team booked their place @ Wembley with a supurb 3-1 win against 'The Fishy Finger Brigade' az the visitors were 'battered' <(sic!) by 'The Heed'!

A record crowd of 8,000 plus (which waz predicted by 'The Geordie Times'!) torned up on this waam afternoon @ The International Stadium, and they had plenty to cheer!

The visitors had 1,000 plus noisy fans behind the right hand goal from us, which made for a great atmosphere in this normally near deserted and quiet stadium (normally 800 average crowds!)

Former Toon player Brian Marwood waz the hero of the day and he opened the scorin' for Gatesheed when a goalkeepin' blunder led to Marwood's shot enterin' the net at the mid point of the half!

Then orly in the 2nd period Grimsby had a player sent off, but this seemed to fire them into action and they equalised in front of their fans at the Sooth end of the groond!

Anothaa Grimsby player waz then sent off for a 2nd bookable offence and The Heed took full advantage with a superb effort from Marwood late in the game and the icin' on the cake came 'at the death' when JJ O'Donnell scrambled home to send 'The Heedbangers' wild with delight at the prospect of a forst ever visit to Wembley Stadium!
A mass invasion followed before the pitch waz cleared for the final few seconds of the game and the ref blew for full time az we danced on the terraces! 
Anothaa pitch invasion at the end saw flares let off, az the home fans and players celebrated on the pitch!

A great day for Gatesheed FC!---"Wembley!---Wembley!---here we come!" (in two weeks time!) <(The Toon's season will be finished by then, so 'The Geordie Times' entourage will be there in force!)

Attendance: 8,144 (1,000 plus 'battered' 'Fish Fingers'!)
