The draw for the thord roond of the FA Cup haz paired us with 2 minnows!
Non leegue Boston United or Leegue 2 Rochdale!
'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' have actually been to York Street, Boston aboot 30 years ago, when Brazilian Mirandinha made hiz debut for The Toon in a friendly.
|YORK STREET, BOSTON|
We won 1-0 if I remember correctly and Mirandinha actually came into the Boston clubhoose after the game and signed the match programme for me, az it had hiz face on the front! (god naaz where that programme iz now?---somewhere in mee loft nee doubt?)
Rochdale, on the othaa hand iz a groond a'v wanted to gan tee for years, az aa must have passed the town a thoosand times or more, through work and travel to othaa away games in Lancashire!
Alang with Fleetwood, its the anly Lancashire based leegue groond aa havvent been tee!
So, I divvint 'fink' it will take much workin oot, just whoo aa want win the replay on Tuesday December 10th in Boston! (aall lugs glued to the radio that neet!)
Whoever it iz, the tie will take place in the forst week of the new year----for live telly for certain!
The game between Boston and Rochdale haz been moved forward 6 days to Munday 16th December for live telly (BT)
(The same day that wor U23s play West Ham U23s in Romford!)
