THE HEEDBANGERS 1 TOON XI 3

Posted '9:00 am bells' Wednesday 3rd August 2011
  'The Toon' side of the bridge!<<<>>>'The Heed' side of the bridge!

Last neet 'The Toon sent a stronger team than invisaged 'across the waata' to play the 'Heedbangers' of Gatesheed in 'The Tyne Bridge derby' (both clubs play within a mile of this iconic Geordie symbol!)

Yet again The Toon torned oot in their new orange change strip, but it was 'The Heed' who took the lead when former Toon player Chris Moore was brought doon in the box in the 9th minute and Kyle Nix beat Steve Harper in wor goal from the resultin' spot kick.
Their lead didn't last lang however and just 4 mins later a Michael Richardson cross was met by Sammy Ameobi's heed to level the score.

We then took the lead through an own goal from James Curtis, who (unfortuanately for him!) sliced the baall home from five yards oot! 

The last goal came on the hour mark when a Ryan Taylor corner eventually fell into the path of 'Sammy Ami' and he toe poked the baall into the net for his second goal of the game

The attendance of 2,108 (1,500 Toon fans) was more than double wot I expected and three times as many as the last time we played here a year ago!?






ST JAMES' PARK to THE INTERNATIONAL STADIUM>>MINI PUB CRAAL!---ABANDONED!---DUE TO IMMINENT THUNDER STORMS!

I had planned do de sommik today that a'v never done before!----waalk to a Toon away game from St James' Park AND de a 'mini' pub craal on the way, arrivin' @ The International Stadium in good time for the kick off!
It's approximately two miles between the groonds across the Tyne (as the drunken magpie flies!) and mee startin' point was to have been 'Shearers Bar' underneath The Gallowgate End sometime yesterday afternooon, but unfortunately as looked oot mee bedroom window across the Tyne @ '2 bells' it had started to rain heavily and a thunder storm looks imminent!---mehbeez next time!

PS: Aa had to make do with a couple of 'gargels' in The Hotspur before catchin' the metro to Gatesheed with 'Dave from York' and then onward to The Schooner bar which stands near the banks o' the Tyne not tooo far from the groond! (The predicted thunder storm DIDN'T happen by the way!)
