Whitby Fishermen 2 v Hunmanby United 3 - 10/09/16 - ground #419 - Mulgrave Community Sports Association

started the day off on the 9.20 thornaby - boro, which gave me plenty time to get booze & crisps in at sainsburys, then a double sausage muffin (without the egg) at Mcds, back to the station for the 10.28 to Whitby. enjoyed 2 winner bottles of cider on the journey down. arrived at Whitby just after 12, did the short walk up the bank to the cricket club, watched some cricket then caught the 4 along the coast to lythe, where the ground is. the match was a cracker! 
the home team led 1-0 at HT, they were reduced to 10 men in the 2nd half, hunmanby then equalized. shortly after they were down to 9, then hunmanby took the lead before being reduced to 10 men ! hunmanby then went 3-1 up. Whitby kept on goin and pulled 1 back in the last minute. more drama was to come when Whitby got a penalty in stoppage time, which unfortunately almost landed in the sea! walked back through the village for the 4 back into town. it arrived 10 mins late, then pulled up with its water alarm blasting. the little fire station was closed down, so the driver had to ask the pax if anyone had bottles of water!  he managed to get 2 which was enough to get the bus to town. I'd hoped to have a quick pint in spoons before the 16.00 back to boro, but with the bus farce, I only had 15 mins to spare, so just got on the train early & cracked open a can which was nearly finished on departure.  the train after the 16.00 is 19.19, but that's a DRY train, so that's a no no!! arrived back at boro at 5.30, short wait for the 17.38 to thornaby to finish a brilliant day out :)
my next trip to Whitby will be to watch Sleights, who play at Caedman College.
