|THE EAST STAND|
This afternoon @ '3 bells' a very rare occurrence will happen @ St James' Park when The Toon U21 resorve side tek on Wolves in a FA U21 Premyaa Leegue fixture!
We honestly carnt remember the last time the resorves played a '3 bells' Saturday game @ SJP, but aa naa one thing---it waz a very (very!) lang time ago!
In the 1960's when the forst team were away on the Saturday the resorves would play the revorse fixture on the hallowed torf and aa used to be a regular in them days!
It shud be mentioned that mee 3 year old grandbairn 'Jamie' will be in attendance for the very forst time and will be 'kitted oot' in hiz black n white strip for the occasion! (he will be 3 years and 300 days old, preciselee, when the game kicks off!) <(yiv got to start them young!) <(they've got to lorn to 'suffer' like us!)
Admission iz via The East Stand and iz free to season ticket holders and members ---everyone else must pay £3 (or £1, dependin' on your age!)
Toon squad for the game: Alnwick, Booth, Aird, Mbabu, Goode, Sakta, Streete, Logan, Gosling, Gilliead, Gillespey, Bigiramana, Vuckic, Quinn, Armstrong, Heardman
A full match report on the Wolves game and Jamie's debut visit will be forthcomin' on Sunday mornin'!
Of course the reason we have a 'free Saturday' on the openin' day of the new season iz because we divvint play 'The Blue Moonies' of Mancland til Monday neet @ The City of Manc Stadium!
(ne new signins on show---ne hope!)
