The Dunston Bad Blue Boys played their biggest game in their history at Federation Park (aka UTS Stadium) when they took on near neighbours The Heedbangers of Gatesheed on Saturday!
Az the game woz scheduled for '12:30 bells' for a live TV stream from the BBC, we had time to gan to that game and heed for St. James' Park across the Tyne 3 miles away for NUFCs '3 bells' kick off v Brightin!
A mammoth crowd of 2,520 (Dunston's average gate iz 250!) torned oot and were 3 deep around the pitch az the game kicked off!
Az 'I'd been in the clubhouse beforehand, mee usual standin place when aa come here woz taken and aa woz forced to watch the match through a crowd of heeds from the back!
The crowd woz a mixture of Dunston and Gatesheed fans with ne segregation, mainly to the fact that many Gatesheed fans live in Dunston anyway!
The occasion torned oot to be too much for the home side and the vistors took the lead at 'The Tea Hut End' through Gregg Olley with a shot that somehow trickled into the net!
It woz soon 2-0 to Gatesheed when Stephen Rigg fired home and 3-0 bang on half time through Scott Bowden az The National Leegue side ran riot against their Northern Leegue
opposition! (4 leegues below)
The game woz been shown on the big screen in the clubhoose and aa watched some of the 2nd half there with a bottle of broon for company before heedin back to mee standin position at the back
It woz 4-0 to Gatesheed through Luke Molineux in the 78th minute and it woz 'game ower' az far az Dunston were concerned!
It woz then onward to SJP and we made the kick off there with 3 mins to spare!
