New Year's Day 1998

3 posts in this topic

This will be the last video for a little while now as from this point on I'm going to post them on the actual day they occurred 20 years ago! The next one is a 1-0 home win vs Slough Town on the 21st January.

I remember the game like it was yesterday, travelled from South Yorkshire and brought my lady and my two little girls to the match. Very happy memories, thank you for posting Mr Stats.

New Year's Day and the new stand construction hadn't even been started. Crazy when you think about it. Yeah, I know the north stand turned out to be a sloppy job, but even completing a crap job of that size in this day and age so quickly is amazing.

As I recall Gateshead played quite well in both games against us, and still went on to be relegated. Drawing 2:2 up at the International Stadium before Christmas, in and amongst a run of comparatively poor form, caused quite a few jitters. I think this 2:0 win calmed a few nerves, as scrappy as it was.
