That figure includes the 69 Gillingham fans who made the trip along the south coast last […]

View From(featured image)

SUNDERLAND AFC v NEWCASTLE U21s This was the tie few people wanted. Certainly not Northumbria Police, who will have to divert considerable resources away from other areas, because of a game of football that will attract a far bigger crowd than any other fixture in the competition to date and has the potential for disorder.
