A great start to the season and a superb 3 points!
We watched the match in The Black Bull in Benton after we'd been to Sheeeldz to watch North Sheeeldz Athletic lose 4-0 to Cullercoats in The Northern Alliance (match report on that game later!)
We'd tried to get into The Benton Ale hoose forst, but they were full and so made a mad dash alang the road to 'The Bull' and thankfully there woz room inside!
We played well in the opening period az the new players gelled aalmost immediately, and we shud have been ahead at the break, but missed several chances to open the scorin'!
And then the breakthrough 9 minutes into the 2nd period when new £20 million striker Callum Wilson scored a classic poachers goal when he toe poked the baall into the net, just beatin' their keeper to baall to send the 100 or so Toon fans in the bar wild with delight!
We were well on top and went for the jugular as West Ham struggled to contain wor attacking prowess!
The icing on the cake came with just 3 minutes left on the clock when another new debutant Jeff Hendrick hit a screeeemer from just inside the box, which gave the home keeper 'nee chance'!
The win and clean sheet meant that we are 2nd in the table behind The Arse and above The Liverbirds---for the time bein' at least!
Happy days!---after the farce of the takeower!
