|TOON FLAGS AT LOKEREN (I'll give yoo 3 guesses wot 'SMB meeenz!?)|
(THE TOON ARE IN WHITE)
Forst of aall apologeeez for not updatin' 'The Geordie Times' for a few days!
This iz because I waz unable to attend wor away games at Lokeran in Belgium or the U21/ resorve side who played at Corby yesterday due to circumstances beyond my control!
Wor lass (Val) underwent and operation in The Freeman Hospital, (which iz on the north side of 'The Toon') on Tuesday mornin' and she wasn't able to come home til Friday evenin'!
Az she needed help and needed me close by, I waz unable to gan to Lokeren or indeed visit a new groond in Corby! (I'll just have to 'live with it'!)
The good news iz that 'she iz on the mend' and I shud be OK 'to retorn to the fray' by the time we play wor forst competitive game of the season, away to Fulham on Friday August 5th!
There WERE however some of 'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' at BOTH games and a brief match report of those from them (very brief!) iz printed below!
LOKEREN 0 THE TOON 4
(Match report by 'Glennn from Ashington' via text on hiz mobile!)
"Perez 2, Janmaat and a lang range Shelvey deflected effort---not sure if it hit Mitrovic. Jesus haz just been sent off with a Lokeren player!"
CORBY TOON 0 TOON U21/RESORVES 3
I had intended to travel with 'Alex of St George' to Corby on the train (£97 retorn to Peterborough!---and then a 50 mile bus jorney to Corby!)
(Match report? by Alex--again by the wonders of text messaging!)
"Pleeeeze still talk to me!--In the end I went to Corby both ways via 'Landan'. Toon won 3-0: Charman 40, Longstaff 58 & 72!"
("I forgive yoo!"---"JUST!")
(For a full match report on both games gan to: www.nufc.com )
I WAZ however able to attend a game closer to home (if I waz needed) and saw 'The Bad Blue Boys of Dunston' hammer Ashton Athletic 5-0 az 'The Red Arrows' flew ower the groond on their way to a certain 'free air show' after takin' off from 'Toon Airport'!
|DEPENDIN' ON HOW GOOD YOUR EYESIGHT IZ--|
'THE RED ARROWS CAN BE SPOTTED BETWEEN THE TREES
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PICTURE
AZ DUNSTON PLAY ASHTON
It iz ironic to say the least that we are playin' wor 2nd game in Corby az I speak, against a PSV Eindhoven X1!!!
Hopefully normal service will be resumed az soon az possible!
