Posted '6:00pm bells' Munday 24th April 2023 (From Loughborough)
"IT'S AALL GO FOR THE NUFC MAD-SAD GROUNDHOPPERS!"
It's been 125 years since NUFC last played in Loughborough, when we won a 2nd Division game 1-0 against Loughborough Toon in front of 1,200 fans in 1898! Campbell scored the anly goal(remember him?) to win the game!
And here we are in 2023 where wor U21s are playin Derby Cooonty U21s at Loughborough University Stsdium at 7:00bells this evenin'! (A 125 year gap must be some kind of record!?🤔)
Aa did some research, hopin that the University groond woz on the same site az The Athletic groond where Loughborough played, so aa could say that aa had been to a former Futbaall Leegue groond where we had played!
Sadly this wozzint the case, az the map shows *(Athletic groond shown where the white star iz-- aboot a mile from the University groond on the left!)😭
A full Geordie Times match report on this game will appear here sometime tomorrow! Az per usual "Watch this space!"
