THE JARRA CRUSADERS 1 THE DUNSTON BAD BLUE BOYS 1 *** NORTHERN LEEGUE

Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 18th February 2018
FITZPATRICK (CENTRE OF PIC) SCORES FOR THE BAD BLUE BOYS
WHO WERE PLAYIN IN RED!
NOTE THE 'mACKEM' SPELLIN' OF 'HOWAY THE LADS'
ON ROOF OF STAND!)

WE'VE GOT MORE FANS THAN YOO!"

With ne weekend fixture for NUFC (because we were knocked oot of the FA Cup at Chelski in the last roond!) we heeded for the delights of Boldon Colliery where The Bad Blue Boys of Dunston were playin away to Jarra!

Boldon iz on the outskirts of mackemland and a visit to The Shack Clubhoose which iz next to Jarra's groond woz wor port o call on wor road trip by bus from the Toon!

"LETS GAN TO 'THE SHACK' FOR A BEER ATTACK!"

2 SMB fans were in the bar wearin their horrible strip and we assumed (thats The Silver Fox and me!) that they were gannin to the stadium of sshh! (yee naa wot!) to watch their home game v Brentfaad

Az the time ticked by it woz obvious that they were gannin to 'give it a miss' as it woz gettin near to kick off time when they went to the bar to order more beer! (To droon their sorrows beforehand!)

We on the othaa hand had a 100 yard walk to the Jarra tornstiles where more liquid lubrications were purchased!

There were aboot 20 Dunston fans in the clubhoose and 3 Jarra fans!

Suprizingly---considerin that Boldon iz near sund'lind there were TWO framed and autographed NUFC shirts adornin the waalls of the clubhoose and just ONE mackem signed shirt?


ANYWAY! It woz soon kick off time and The Bad Blue Boys (who had more fans than the home side!) went on the attack from the start but couldnt make the breakthrough and went in level at the break with the game scoreless!

Again in the 2nd period Dunston laid seige to to the 'mackem' pronunciation 'HAWAY THE ROOFERS' stand behind the left hand goal! (Az opposed to the 'Geordie' 'HOWAY THE LADS'!)
(see roof of top photo!)


The  breakthrough came--(NOT!) from Dunston) at the midpoint of the half, when Jarra took the lead through a heeded goal by Myers, to give the home side an undesorved lead!

The Bad Blue Boys hit back a few minutes later when Fitzpatrick heeded in,  to send the majority of the 100 or so crowd into raptures! (Whey---light applause anyway!)
MATCH AND BUS TICKET!

"WE WOZ THERE---THE PROOF!"


It ended 1-1 and we heeded back to 'The Shack' where the sund'lind 'stay aways' WERE drownin their sorrows az they'd lost 2-0!
"HA! HA!"

It woz then onward to the Toon for some more liquid lubrications in The Star on Westgate Road
