Groundhopping over the boarder: two Edinburgh grounds in one day

Newcastle fan Colin Harrison takes full advantage of the pre-season friendly schedule groundhopping over the boarder to visit 2 Scottish League grounds in a day… When Newcastle United announced a pre-season friendly against Heart of Midlothian at Tynecastle, I immediately booked train tickets to ensure I ticked off another ground (even though I can’t add it to my 92). As the day of the match was a Friday we had a few hours to spare so Paul and I decided to visit Easter Road, home of Hibernian. We hoped to take a look around before heading across the city to… Read more »

A Swan in the Toon – St James’s Park

Swansea fan Matthew Harrison makes his debut in blog sharing his review of his trip to St James’s Park. My only ever visit to St James Park, before this November visit, was a trip to Shearers’ Bar (the bar adjoining the famous Gallowgate End) during a night out in Newcastle after going to Sunderland away last season. I was very much looking forward to entering the stadium proper with many people raving about their trips to the Geordie’s cathedral of football.
