I was delighted to receive this e-mail from my much loved cousin Veronica Stanton (nee Young) originally from the People’s Republic of Dunston (aka D-Town) who in tyhe finest traditions of finding Geordies in the most unlikely of places happened upon our team, Newcastle United in her adopted home of Sacramento.
This is Veronica’s patter with link to Sacramento’s match report. Not exactly what you are all used to but its a rare event that we don’t have one of our operatives at a Newcastle United first team game.
I thought you would all enjoy seeing how many black and white shirts there were at the Sacramento Bonney Field, for the invitational match between the Sacramento Republic and Newcastle United this past Saturday.
Kick off was 8:00 pm so it was cool, around low 70s. I had been dreading it because it was around 100F during the day.
The stands were full and everyone was in a good mood. I never thought I’d see the day that I would see the Magpies in Sacramento !
