SMBs 1st TEAM v NUFC U21s (RESORVE TEAM)

Posted 'high noon bells' Tuesday 8th January 2019

Tooneet we face the mackems at The SOS ("Stadium Of Sssshhh!--yee naa wot!") in The Checkatrade Trophy @ '7:45 bells'!

While NUFC will send a youthful 'resorve' side to wearyside the SMBs must field their 1st team in a 'no lose game' for us!
IF they win then people will say that its anly against NUFC U21s, while a defeat for them will be humiliatin' to say the least!
(3rd and 4th tier sides must field their 1st teams, while teams in The Premyaa Leegue and Championship must field mostly U21 players (ie: Their resorve sides!)

If the tie iz level after 90 minutes a penalty shootout will then take place to determine who will gan through to the last 8 of the competition. 

NUFC have sold the entire 2,800 allocation (we asked for 4,800 tickets, but were knocked back by 'The Dibble'!) while the mackems have sold an estimated 10,000 tickets!

There are ne ticket sales today to try and avoid NUFC fans getting into the home areas!

A full Geordie Times match and pix report will appear here sometime on Wedinzday!
