For those of you who aren’t on the road to South Wales and United’s match against Swansea City but who fancy a stretch of the legs, a day at a football match in the fresh air with some good people then we have just the thing for you.
The FA Cup preliminary round between Newcastle’s very own Heaton Stann and the superbly named Norton & Stockton Ancients will kick off at 3 on a Saturday afternoon tomorrow. I know, it will never catch on will it?
There’s a canny little club house serving a decent pint and as someone who has had a pie or two in my time, I can recommend the savouries.
The home team plays in Black & White stripes, black shorts and black socks. The team carries the city crest on its shirt. I know you like them already.
If you do go, remember to pick up a programme, a badge or whatever and support a cracking Northern League football club which is part of the fabric of football in the city, Tyneside and the wider North East.
That is all.
