THE HORSFIELD STADIUM!---A GROVELLIN' EXPLANATION!

Posted '1:30pm bells' Tuesday 12th July 2106

In mee match report for wor U21s game @ Bradfaad on Sunday, aa said that the groond waz called 'The Horsfield Stadium', when in fact it's called 'The HorsFALL Stadium.
Many (many!) years ago The Toon had a player called Arthur Horsfield (pictured) who played just 9 games for us, scorin' 3 goals in 1969 
He played in wor famous 5-1 defeat of Vitoria Setubal 'in the snow' in wor Fairs Cup winnin' season!
Somehow aa had a 'brainwarp' and put hiz name to the stadium instead!  (see below!)
