With nee forst team game on a Saturday (again!) because of International fixtures, some of the lads decided to heed for deepest Cumbria, where wor fave non leegue club 'The Bad Blue Boys' of Dunston were supposed to be playin Penrith in a Northern Leegue championship decider! (The Northern Leegue iz the 9th tier of Inglish futbaall)
If Dunston won at bottom club 'Penrith Sheep Sh****rs' and 'The Bishops of Auckland' lost, Dunston would crowned leegue champions!
With train tickets booked, 'Grumpy Stumpy' and 'Davy the Silver Fox' were lookin forward to their visit to Penrith! BUT! there woz ' a spanner in the works' az the game woz cancelled because Penrith had a county cup match away to Wigton, which takes priority!
They still went and got 'rat-arsed' in Penrith toon centre instead, where there are 'bars a plenty'!
Yours truely had planned to gan az well, but couldn't, coz I woz on a *CPC course, which iz a requirement of aall truckers to do to keep on drivin' HGVs (*Certificate of Professional Competence)
(I'd arranged the course on Saturday coz The Toon wornt playin'!---forgettin that Dunston were!---allegedly!)
Never mind!---'The Bad Blue Boys', who are well clear of the chasin' pack, will probably win it through the week when they take on Guisborough at home az 'The Bishops' lost 3-2 at Hebburn!----Just ONE point will secure the title!
Watch this space to find oot if they 'did it'!
PS: Wor U23s WERE in action at dinnaa time yesterday in a rearranged game and beat Wolves 2-0 with goals from Bartlett and an own goal!
just 189 were in attendance at Benton (az this game woz re-arranged late, I couldnt gan there eethaa!)
