The Toon have drawn Gillingham away in the Leegue Cup!
For a change yoo read this news forst in 'The Geordie Times' and nee-where else! 
The tie will be played week commencing 25th August! 

Keep the faith!

Update '10:47am bells' Thorsday 14th August 2014

This tie looks the most attractive for live telly (havin' seen the rest of the draw) and we are CERTAIN! that it will be picked for live transmission on eetha Monday 25th, Tuesday 26th or Wednesday 27th August!

Az for mee aan 'mad-sad groundhoppers' record, The Priestfield Stadium iz the last Leegue groond that still exists in England that aa havvent been at some point to watch The Toon, since aa started gannin to away games in 1967!
We played them for the one and anly time doon at their place in 1976 when we won in the League Cup, with Tommy Cassidy <(who frequents a certain hostelry in High Bridge quite often!) and Paul Cannell scorin' wor goals in front of an 11,000 plus crowd that neet <(but not includin' me!)

PS: THREE BLACK MARKS against me!----Aa wasn't at Southport in 1968 or Bury in 1980 for Leegue Cup ties but have since visited them for NUFC resorve games----Aa wasn't at Layer Road, Colchester eetha in 1982 for an FA Cup tie (won 4-3) but that groond nee langer exisists az they have moved on to 'pastures new'!
