....Today saw my home seaside town of Whitley Bay compete against the might of Glossop North End in the FA Vase Final at Wembley.
The Bay, supported by a blue & white army of 7000 strong, (including myself), ran out 2-0 winners and lifted the Vase. A great day for Whitley and for those that made the journey from the North East.
The undoubted highlight was an array of fine crowd chants including, "Shoes off, if you love the Bay. Shoes off, if you love the Bay......", to which several hundred shoes, (mostly Nike Air Max and Reebok Classic), were raised in to the air!
