That can be had at the International Stadium this coming Saturday with a tea-time KO when Gateshead entertain Cambridge United in a big game as part of their push to regain the Football League status they lost so cruelly just over fifty years ago.
Gateshead manager, Gary Mills is doing a cracking job under a genuine Chairman (Graham Wood) who seems to really care about Gateshead Football Club. His team look like an honest bunch of lads determined to do their best for each other and their supporters.
We don’t have a match this weekend and you could all do a lot worse than have a wander over to the Brooklyn of Tyneside (cough) aka the Geordie Left-bank to cheer on a Geordie team in Black & White.
Hell, if you are Newcastle United season ticket holder you’ll even get a fiver knocked off the admission charge.
The Heed had a decent attendance of 2121 for their last home game on Good Friday for the visit of Southport and a few of you reading this made the trip down the Felling By-pass and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if Geordies up and down the Tyne and beyond made their way to the International Stadium this coming Saturday and exceeded that Southport attendance?
Could The Heed pull in 3000+ from what was once termed the Hotbed of Football?
Get yourself along, you know it makes sense and you have true faith’s permission to make a night of it by staying out afterwards and having a grand ol’ swally. See you in one of Tyneside’s best boozers, The Central Bar on Half Moon Lane, nr. the Tyne Bridge afterwards.
NB: watch out for Mags of a certain vintage recalling an absolutely desperate United 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Us many moons ago at the Abbey Stadium (shudder).
