'The Geordie Times' can excluuusiveleee reveal that former Toon hero and current resorve team coach, Peter Beardsley, will open Consett's new groond this comin' Friday neet when a Toon X1 will provide the opposition!
'Beardo', who iz in hiz 50s now, iz set to play <(for at least some of the game!) and The Toon have promised to send their strongest possible team, bearin' in mind that we play 'The Canary Custards of Norwich' @ St James' Park the next day in a Premyaa Leegue encoontaa!
The new groond which haz one of them synthetic pitches iz to be called 'Belle Vue Stadium', which of course teks it's name from the old one which waz caalled simply 'Belle Vue'!
The anly doonside to aall this iz that snow iz expected later on this week az temperatures are set to plummet and Consett of course iz high up in the 'moontains' of Coonty Durham next to 'The Pennine chain', which doesn't help!
More to follow on aall this az the week progresses!
