Snapshots - Consett FC

Consett vs Worsbrough Bridge Athletic. FA Vase 2nd Qualifying Round, 1 October 2005, Belle View Park. Score 5-0.  Attendance 87.
My first visit to the North East and during a hectic trip around County Durham and Tyneside I took in the first half of this FA Vase tie at Consett’s Belle Vue Park, well worth visiting for its superb grandstand. As you can see from the pics, the sun wasn’t in the best place and a morning visit would be best if you want to get any pics (although you would have to check first to ensure access). I left just before half-time after a fairly even opening period during which the Barnsley-based side came more into the game after early pressure by Consett (in red). The second half was evidently another story - although I missed all five goals! Excellent programme incidentally. DB.
