One of the 'NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' went extreme groundhoppin' yesterday when he heeded for Lestaa'z new Seagrave trainin' groond, which iz in 'the middle of nee where', to watch wor U18s play Lestaa'z U18s! (ie: a game on a field with nee stands)
'Glennn from Ashington', who cannit drive, got there by train and bus, anly to find that when he got to the trainin' complex that the game had been delayed, coz an ambulance and paramedics hadn't arrived---which iz compululsary for U18 games!
None did arrive and so the game had to be postponed on 'Pitch 2'---a wasted jorney for Glennn?---well not quite!
Wor U16s were playin' on an ajoinin' pitch, some distance from the U18s game and so he rushed to 'Pitch 10' to watch that game instead---missin' 27 minutes coz of the late cancellation of the U18s game! (the kick off time woz at '1:00pm bells' for both games)
Apparently, yoo divvint need an ambulance or paramedics for an U16s game, which begs the question---"WHY NOT?" if its compulsary for U18 games?????
"HOW RIDICULOUS IZ THAT"!??????
PS: Glennn woz unable to send 'The Geordie Times' any pix of the game, az yoo arnt allowed to take photos of U16s games!
