Day 59

The 2010/2011 Football Season kicks off!

Yes, precisely 6 days after I saw the last games of the 2009/2010 season, I am at a pre-season friendly between Whitley Bay and Glossop.

I had a special interest as both clubs have supported Bjørn with shirts and I had also visited the Derbyshire club. It was an entertaining game played in the pale Northumbria sun and the home team shaved an end-to-end game 1-0 with a nice header 10 minutes from time. Almost 100 Hillmen (and women!) made the long trip nothwards and intriguingly many weere dressed in Hawaii-style dress. I guess that two sets of supporters who “enjoy” some of the worst weather in the UK hoped to get some summer …. but I was dressed in a heavy anorak against the North Sea winds! I wish both clubs well in 2010/2011.
