View from the North West Corner: Sunderland U23s v Norwich City U23s

View From

SAFC U23s 1 v Norwich City U23s 1 For some reason the Under 23s had elected to play their home fixture against Norwich at the Stadium of Light, rather than the Colliery Welfare ground in Hetton. I never seem to enjoy U23 games at the Stadium as much, partly because the small number of supporters […]

Monsieur Salut writes: I often envy the lifestyles of Pete Sixsmith and Malcolm Dawson, enjoying the North East without any longer the need to do much work – though both, in their own ways, remain active – and free to pop along to any match they choose.

Sixer’s Substitute’s Soapbox: Fulham supporting Richard Osman’s team leave Wearside pointless

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes…………..Santa called early this year and on his way to bring joy and happiness to the children of Weardale and the greater North East, popped Pete Sixsmith‘s season card through my letterbox.
