|"NEW GROOND!" *** "NEW GROOND!" *** "NEW GROOND!"|
Tooneet 'the mad-sad groundhoppers' face the moothwaaterin' prospect of a new groond within the city limits, when a U21/resorve side travel the (very!) short distance to High Heaton to take on Northern Leegue side Heaton 'Stan' @ Grounsell Park in a friendly arranged to switch on their new floodlights!
It iz 58 years since a Toon side last played 'Stan' so it's safe to assume that aall those present tooneet will be witnessin' their forst game between the two clubs az well!?
Admission iz a fiver for big kids and two quid for sprogs and zimmerframeites and we've hord through the grapevine that they have a canny little clubhoose!
A'v decided to de a 'pub crawl' from St James' to the groond and plan to visit 'The Royal Archer', 'The Punchbowl', 'The Cradlewell' <(if it's still open?) and 'The Corner Hoose' boozers, amongst others, before makin' mee way up to the groond, which iz somewhere beside the Freeman Hospital, off Newton Road!
Kick off iz @ '7 bells' and aall are welcome!
