'GAZZA', JOE ALLEN & SQUAD WITH THE  FA YOUTH CUP

Toneet @ St James' Park wor youth team tek on Watford's equivelent in the 4th roond of The FA Youth Cup.
Kick off iz @ '7 bells' and anly The East Stand will be open and admission iz three poond for big kids and one poond fifty for little kids and very old kids!---so get yerselz alang and cheer the youngins on!
Shud we win, we will have another home tie in the next roond when we will take on the QPR 'rag and bone boys' of Shepherds Bush (hopefully!)

Memories of the final in May 1985 come floodin' back az we beat Watford in the final 2nd leg @ Vicarage Road 4-1 to lift the trophy, when a certain person caalled 'Gazza' played for us and scored a fantastic goal from 30 yards oot! (remember him!?)

Toon youth coach of that time, Maurice Setters said, "You'll have to wait a thousand years to see that again!", in reference to 'Gazza's' wonder strike!
(the forst leg @ St James' had ended goalless by the way!)

'The Geordie Times' waz there that Friday neet in May and aa remember that the next day we were off to Norwich for a forst team game @ Carrow Road where we drew 0-0

Footnote: We havvent won the Youth Cup since then, so lets hope that we DIVVINT have to wait another thoosand years to win the trophy again! (somehow aa divvint think we'll be aroond by then!)
