Posted '5:55pm bells' Tuezday 11th April 2022
We decided to heed for Hebburn on Sooth Tyneside to watch the derby Between Hebburn and Dunston on Easter Munday!---A mini bus woz hired for the 15 faithful Dunston fans who made straight for the Hebburn clubhoose on arrival at the groond!
It had started off a nice day but before lang it started p*ssin doon az the game kicked off! Hebburn were in 3rd positon in the table and guarantied a play off position with just a handful of games left!
While The Bad Blue Boys of Dunston sat in 6th place just ootside the 5th place needed to get into the play offs!
Dunston (in their aall red strip) took the lead through Pearson, who hit a fine shot into the corner of the net----just before that disaster had struck when Shaw woz sent off in the 34th minute!
The Bad Blue Boys held onto thier 1-0 lead until half time, but with a man advantage Hebburn struck back in the minute to level the tie through Murray in the 55th minute with an easy chance!
Dunston managed to haad on til full time to claim a point and with a game in hand on those above them, a play off place iz still possible (but improbable) az they must win their last 3 games to have any chance of catchin the teams above them!
The fans stayed til '7 bells' when the mini bus torned up for the retorn jorney to Dunston---Many highly inebriated by then!
Attendance; A very good 538 includin aboot 30 from Dunston, includin Committee men!
