So, right down to the wire, eh! Still not settled how things are going to finish for the season, and now we know there is almost definitely one club coming up, Birtley Town from the Wearside League; at least they have been trying for a while, and its not too far to travel, for those who can travel, almost counts as another derby match. Good luck to them, and lets just hope we are still there to welcome them into the Arngrove Northern League for 2007/08. I'll not be going anywhere in a hurry, that's for sure.

Is this what Sir Alex calls squeaky bum time? Good run of results followed by a failure to score goals costing us dear, and now even Alnwick have started to pick up points. Steady ship needed through these last few weeks or it could still be the big drop!
So are freelance gate welders standard issue in these parts? Or is everybody round here nuts?
Is it believable? That someone, who holds an apparently responsible position, should send men round to weld gates together so balls can’t be collected when they go over fences; give me strength, Lord, give me strength.
Don’t let the b******s grind you down, but do let them grind the gates open, that’s what I say.
Happy New Year. Sorry for the lack of a December edition of these post dated musings, but I just got too carried away with the football!
A win, a win at last! And against a team who had just won three off the belt. When the woodwork was rattled twice I thought it was going to be the same old story but no, a good cross, a good header, ten minutes scary defending and there you are, three points, and fifty quid for half a 'Performance of the Week' award because Whitley Bay feel sorry for us. Not sure we should be happy about that, but we'll have the money thanks.
George Kinnell, I don’t think this was in the fat lad's plans!
Rock bottom, and gazing up the league. In some ways it wouldn’t be so bad if we were getting murdered every week, but it seems like it’s always the same old story, last minute screamer, or header from needlessly conceded corner, takes points away to somewhere murky in the backwaters of the North East, while assorted traveling fans celebrate in the clubhouse. Hard to take, but at least the takings are up.
Slight delay with this month’s view, just catching me breath you know after last month…
Tremendous turn out for Alan Thompson’s game, but the late equaliser for the Colliery told a tale, Then, 8-0 and 5-2 defeats, only saw the second one myself obviously, but it looks like we might have a crisis at the back, then two clean sheets and a performance of the week award, I’m getting confused! And that was only the first couple of weeks.
