Fan Q&A – Tony Young

Big T, as someone who has been following Blyth since the dinosaur times. Give is your top 3 favourite moments following Blyth?

There is a few to mention.

Blackpool away FA Cup under Budgie.   Telling my boss ( who was my unlce )  i had done my back in ,then him spotting me on MOTD.   Crying at the end with immense pride, but with tears of sorrow too.  Also nearly leaving Gatis the Bus driver Behind who was last on bus.  Luckily, he drove us there, but not back.

Whitby away . My Stag do bk then.  Leaving Blyth 9am for a 7.45PM ko. Get to Whitby at 12.30. My one-Man pitch invasion too at the end to Celebrate Scotty Bells 96th Equalizer top make it 4-4.  Getting home at 2.30am on the Wednesday in the Worst Thunder Storm ever to hit Blyth.  And only 6 People stayed awake on the bus coming back out of 52.  

But for Joy n Scenes it has to Be FC Manchester with Wrightson winner.  Limbs a plenty. 

Shag marry kill – Blackett, Fred or Gary Allen?

Possibly the toughest one yet.  

Shag Gary, purely to punish him. Kill Blackett, well needs it after the times he’s barred me lol. Marry Fred, simple he’s minted.

Who’s the worst and who’s the best drinkers you’ve seen on supporters busses over the years?

Have to Give Gary the Best one.  Loves a slurp that lad. Worst I’d give that to Porky. Starts well but like his Banter Fades later in the day.

Favourite awayday of all time?

Taking Adam to his First away trip & meeting the lads n thinking Christ what have i done. Esp the Education lessons he got from Seghill Gary. 

Worst ground you’ve ever been to and why?

FFS A few. I remember the Northern League Days like Evenwood, Ferryhill and Consett. But Winner is Goole.  Absolute Hole with Shit Race Track Round it. 

Lastly, how would you like to see the club improve in the near future and what changes would you like to see?

Without Sounding like a broken record.   But New Investment from outside the Board.  Social Club is on the Right Track ,but maybe a fresh lick of paint & new speakers for the live Sport.   

While i love the Club We have National League Status With Northern League Mentality   

BASFC Till I Die.
