Gateshead’s final game of the season, a disappointing result and performance, one which epitomised a season that drifted away…

The game was over after an hour, Leyton Orient finding themselves three up through goals from Macauley Bonne (a header from a corner), and long range efforts from Jobi McAnuff and Josh Koroma…

Pre-Match: Steve Watson Takes the Warm Up…

I wasn’t in the ground to see Danny Johnson pull one back from the penalty spot, as I was already on my way to St. James’…

And to add insult to injury, they ran out of programs…

The day that the sun finally came out. It’s a strange old feeling to be warm at Gateshead Stadium…

A good game too. Gateshead on top from start to finish, winning through a goal in each half. Daniel Johnson scoring the first on the stroke of half time, and Jordan Burrow adding the second after the break…

Game number fifty three of the season, and possibly the worst I’ve seen to date. Not helped by the fact that it was yet another bitterly cold day at the International Stadium…

The only moment of note came in the 83rd minute when he visitors were awarded a penalty, but Montgomery pushed Jake Howells’ effort wide. Although, If I’m being honest, I didn’t see it. I had to leave early to get to the cinema, and I was more than happy to have an excuse…

I’m happy to report that Isle of Dogs was far better than the match…
