ASHINGTON COLLIERS v SOUTH SHIELDS. FRIDAY AUGUST 3rd

Post by passtheball » Tue Jul 31, 2012 1:18 pm

This coming August 4th Saturday's friendly at Amble has been cancelled in view of the River Tyne Ferry 'Booze Cruise' the same evening. Instead Shields will now play Ashington Colliers, of the Northern Alliance Premier Division on Friday, August 3rd, kick off at 7.15pm at the Woodhorn Lane ground of their near neighbours Ashington of the Northern League Division 1. Post code for satnavers is NE63 9FW, road directions are Tyne Tunnel to A19 then take the A189 signposted Ashington at Moor Farm roundabout. At Woodhorn roundabout turn left onto the A197 ( marked Morpeth ). The ground is on the left side along Woodhorn Lane. Total distance 20 miles. Although the club bus water pump problem has now been rectified, it is not available on Friday evening for supporters. Any car drivers intending going to the match who have any spare seats available and would take passengers who need a lift can notify me on 537 2633 with your contact details, and anyone wanting a lift do likewise and I shall put each other in touch to make the arrangements etc.

A Friday evening match always has novel value, and is a change from the norm, so a decent attendance from Shields supporters, be it 20 miles distant could be most possible. Weather forecast seems OK, a decent game and a good workout, a few goals maybe, on a very good new ground with excellent floodlights and a nice bar all make for a canny night out......
