NUFC U18s were drawn against Charlton U18s in the FA Youth Cup 3rd roond and the tie will be played next Tuezday 6th Decembaa!
In the previous 2 roonds Charlton played their U18s games at Dartford Town FC and so (az yi dee!) aa booked a days holiday from work for that day and had planned to travel doon!---
HOWEVER! Charlton have now moved the game at short notice to their main Valley Groond (The b*stards!)----a groond 'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' forst visited in 1978 for an (old) 2nd Division game and have been to many times since!
Because of this, a'v binned the trip and by a slice of good fortune 'The Bad Blue Boys' of Dunston are playin away at Grantham next Tuezday az well---and so a'm gannin to cadge a lift on the team bus, az aa cannit change mee holiday, az an agency driver haz aalready been booked to cover mee shift (Aa drive a truck for a livin' in case yi didnt naa!)
'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' rules are simple----If its a forst team competitive away game, we MUST attempt to gan to the game!
If its a resorve or junior game on a groond we have previously visited, then we can give it a 'miss'! (A'v actually been to well ower 100 groonds to watch the resorves and juniors oot of the 359 visited in total!)
So Grantham it iz!----a new groond for a Dunston game for me (Mee fave non leegue team)
