North Shields Athletic Reserves 1 v Billingham FC 4 - 30/07/16 - ground #415 - John Spence Community High School

after 2 new grounds in Hartlepool to kickstart my season, it was time for a venture up to tyneside (1st of many possibly, as I haven't got many "local" grounds left to do) . set off from Thornaby on the 11.26 to Darlo, for the 12.05 to central station. 2 metros later arrived in north shields about 1.20. 20 mins walk later arrived at the ground for the 2pm k.o.
very enjoyable game, dominated by Billingham who led 4-0. shields had quite a few chances but couldn't make much of them. a late pen gave them a consolation goal which they deserved. after the game, a brisk walk back down to the metro station, got me there for 4.05 back into town, changing at monument, arrived at central station about 4.35, plenty time to pop into Sainsburys for 4 colld cans of Strongbow for the journey home, then got the 4.59 to Darlo (avoiding the crowd coming out of the mags v Vittesse Arnhem match). made the 5.31 to Thornaby by 3 mins, to round another good day :)
