(4 days late!)
PART OF THE HUGE 108 CROWD WATCH
FROM THE FAR TOUCHLINE---'TWO'! OLD TIMERS!
An aaful first half display in a strong wind spoiled the game and the sides went in goalless at the break!
The smaall crowd of 108 could anly watch az Readin scored the one and anly goal of the game in the 50th minute through Olise who ran through wor defence to slot home!
We played a lot better in this half but just couldn't find the equaliser and so wor U23s lost for the first time in 4 games!
After the match it woz a 20 minute Metro ride from Benton to Gatesheed Stadium, where 'The Heedbangers' of Gatesheed ran oot 3-1 winners against Alfreton in The Natonal Leegue North, with goals from Kayode (2) and Preston.
Preston's goal woz a spectacular effort from 30 yards oot into the corner of the net, to send The Heedbangers into ecstasy!
A crowd of aroond aboot 700 included 25 or so hardy Alfreton fans in the far corner of the main stand!
The gallows humour of the Gatesheed fans woz brilliant!
"Gateshead's a sh*t hole---I call it my home!"
