"WHEEEZ TREEEZ ARE THEEEZ!"
The Toon are playin 2 friendlies against Bornley at The Portugese National Trainin' groond (Gidade Do Futebol) today, simultaneously!
The 24 man squad will be split in 2 and Eddie Howe and Bornley's new manager Vincent Company have agreed to field 2 eleven a side matches on adjacent pitches! (we understand that the games have both kicked off)
The games are behind closed doors, but we understand that intrepid 'NUFC mad-sad groundhopper' 'Glennn from Ashington' iz attempting to view the game from ootside the groond!
He haz promised to send 'The Geordie Times' some action photos if that iz possible?
Lookin at the ariel groond photo above, there are a forest of trees on one side of the trainin complex where a vantage viewin point iz possible!
We have nee idea if Glennn iz any good at climbin' trees!!!!
MATCH RESULTS HERE
Full time: NUFC X1 3 THE BORNLEY HILLBILLIES 0
Scorers: Saint Max, Wilson, Almiron
NUFC X1 4 (correction 6 (SIX!)
Nee idea of who scored yet, but Glennn saw the game (don't know he was swingin' in the trees?)
NUFC swapped teams for the 2nd half and the team who played on Pitch 1 played on Pitch 2 Bornley didn't swap pitches for the 2nd half! (Confused?--so are we??.)
