Sunday 10 May 2015


I visited the new Wembley for the first time at the weekend. My home town club North Shields were in the FA Vase final and therefore it seemed a great excuse for me and little-Hamil to get the early train down to London for the game.

In recent years I've not had much to cheer from a football point of view [ref 1, 2]. You can sometimes question whether it really matters as much to those making the decisions and those playing as it does to the fans. But watching a small, local club, close to your heart win a cup at the national stadium makes for a pretty special day.
