I'm out also - apologies for late update (been away in London)

My hamstring is still giving me jip so I'm not gonna risk it - off to Paris for work on Monday and can't afford to be f***ed...

Whitby have confirmed that they're still bringing a team up. I've given their lad (Andrew) Yorkie's mobile.

We were short as it is and now more have dropped out. In my opinion we need another seven names and i really, really don't think it's going to happen. I'll still make another pitch enquiry but i'm going to cancel this tomorrow if there's still a major shortage.

Thanks for collaring your mate, Slim.

Anyone else - can you bring your Dad, uncles, brothers, sisters, dogs, aunties? If not - i'm gonna have to apologise and draw a line through this fixture. The Whitby lads aren't coming up for a league football match, they're just coming up to play with us guys - so i don't want to mess them around.

Thanks.

Guy at Whitby says that they actually have a couple Newcastle fans in their (sizeable) squad. So as a last resort, say we get our lot from here up to eleven players, we can always look at that.

But aye, it's got to be by tomorrow because i don't want to be cancelling stuff at the last minute.

See no reason why people cannot bring one friend.  Infact if you let me know how many people we need by the end of play @ 3am i could find a few more

Slim, get onto them now mate, let them know we might need them. :thup: Would be great if you could get two or three along with you. We are desperately short. It'd be good to see if we could get some more names from here but, like we've said, it's not just exclusive to Newcastle Online. We want to give these Whitby lads a game and if your friends are Newcastle fans, it works for me. :thup:

Newcastle Uni was our last hope of a pitch at a reasonable price and there's been a message left on the chap's answer machine since yesterday lunch time.

:dontknow:

I've probably come out of this whole thing looking very s*** and unorganised but i genuinely don't know what else to do at times. :undecided: I'll give the bloke another ring later this afternoon (just tried again there, answer machine again).

Nice one gathering some players, though. Great effort. :thup:

Well i'm ninety miles away and dunno where the footy pitches are. I've only gone off what i've found on the net. Without being all high-horsey, i only volunteered to start scouting the pitches cos no one else had, and we had fixtures fairly fast approaching.

If someone wants to point the squad in the direction of a nearby pitch (and the Whitby lads, i've got the chap's number so just give me the details and i'll pass it on), then by all means - please do.

I'm gonna draw a line under my involvement in pitch organisation next season cos like i say, i dunno where stuff is. I'm not really the right bloke to be doing it if we're honest.

I also dont want to get high horsey but if someone had asked me earlier in the week I could have tried to find somewhere.

just rang gateshead, £48 for a hour, another £24 to make it 90 mins!!!!!

so unless anyone has another venue I guess we are knackered

£72's fairly reasonable in the grand scheme of things. What did you say to them? There was an application form process last time i contacted Gateshead, mind that was about three weeks ago. It was a lot more expensive n'all but that could have been down to a fixture pile-up following the poxy winter.

Thanks for enquiring, though.

This makes a lot of sense, cos it was upwards of £95 when i enquired.

Book the s*** out of it, i say. Whitby lads are all still determined for a game and we look to have a squad of players available now.
