Gateshead Away

Post by Scottish Shot » Thu Oct 11, 2018 10:48 am

Currently trying to book train tickets from Aberdeen to Newcastle for Gateshead away in a few weeks. Trying to book them early as possible for price reasons! Slightly fearful of potential FA Cup 4th Round Qualifying replays getting in the way. Anyone know if that weekend (27th) is likely to be used for replays or if there's another weekend/weekday replays are penned in for? Cheers!

Trophy replays are normally Saturdays but the FA Cup still do midweek so should be OK

Trophy replays on a Saturday? Is that another stupid new thing they’ve brought out? Anyway it’s time they made trophy games particularly first couple of rounds midweek I think!

Both legs of the semi finals are Saturdays, but I’m Pretty sure trophy replays are midweek, unless that’s changed recently? Didn’t we have a replay against Weston Super Mare a couple of years back that was midweek?

All FA Trophy replays are midweek, though Vase replays are always Saturdays

I have spare seats in my car for the journey taking an easy trip from Woking station at 7ish and then hack it home. See me at the East Bank Bar at half time at the Kettering game

Ok Boys and Girls, talking of Gateshead away, I have spare seats in my car. I intend to leave Woking station at 7ish and take an easy trip t'up north, watch the shots win again up there and then hack it home. See me at the East Bank Bar at half time at the Kettering game.

Apparently, for anyone interested and not planning on going to the Heed there is a large group of Shots fans and friends going to the Alton home match.

Not yet sure what I’m doing/where I’m going, but hopefully up North!

Your info is correct young Alex.
Sponsoring the match with Scott to Go Ltd.
Come and join us for a cup of tea and a sandwich if you don't make the trip oop North...

I’m pretty sure that if both teams agree to it, a replay is eliminated and a game can be decided on the day. I recalled Leyton Orient doing that last season.

The man himself (Alex) informed us earlier this week about a train strike that Saturday so that means I’ll get to brookwood station about 2 that day and I’ll arrive in Alton about 9 o’clock that evening!
