|STEVEN RIGG'S PENALTY PROVES DECISIVE!|
"WE HEEDED FOR THE HEED via THE GREY NAGS HEED!"
'The Heedbangers' of Gatesheeed kept their thin hopes of a play off a place alive when the beat Chesterfeeeld at Gatesheed Stadium yesterday afternoon!
The day started off at 'The Heedbangers' HQ, which iz a bar caalled The Grey Nags Heed on Gatesheeed High Street!
It woz then onward to the stadium for the '3 bells' kick off where a good crowd by Gatesheeed's standard (ower a thooosand) woz boosed by 300 to 400 visitin fans in the stand opposite us!
|CHESTERFIELD FANS IN THE FAR STAND|
The Heedbangers fans were in good voice az they supported the team and slagged their absent owner off (where have we seen this before?)
He's caalled Joe Cala and protest banners aboot hiz runnin of the club were displayed by unhappy fans! (where have we seen this before?)
However!---their unhappiness torned to joy when they were awarded a penalty in the 17th minute and up stepped number 4 Steven Rigg to slam the baall into the net at the 'Scoreboardless End' (there used to be a huge scoreboard at this end, which haz mysteriously disappeared since the last time we were here!?)
It woz still 1-0 at the break and The Heed came oot in the 2nd half with aall guns blazin az they attempted to get the 2nd goal.
|2nd HALF ACTION (THE HEED ARE IN BLACK n WHITE)|
'The Crooked Spireites' (Chesterfeeeld's nickname, az the church in their toon centre haz a crooked spire!) wornt in the contest and the game petered oot! (The penalty had proved decisive!)
Scores elsewhere meant that Gatesheeed are still in with a chance of the play offs---just a very smaall chance---but yi never naaa!
