Hi All,

Did phase 3 at South Shields and went back recently for work, seems cleaner now!!

Was there in 1976-77, I think. Stayed in digs on Stanhope Road and drank in the Stanhope and another pub towards college. A few lads lived in a house in Bolden Colliery? I remember a Kev Begley and Sam (from Plymouth) lived there and a lad called Gus?

Great days and enjoyed the football there playing for the college and getting kicked by the locals as we were “puffs in uniform!”

Rememberer the big single cylinder Doxford and starting it each year with Mr. Bradley, had huge hands!

There was a pub at the S Shields ferry landing - The Norfolk and Suffolk ! known worldly as the 'Two F**ks' ! Was hard to get past as it was almost on the ferry landing. Then the 'Jungle' on the North side while waiting for a bus up the bank.There were plenty of buses in those days. Enough said.

One night group of us in the early 60s tried to have a half in every pub in Ocean Road, Kings Street and the Market Square. We failed but can't remember how well we did. I do however remember falling off the back of a No.5 trolley bus and spilling my Colemans sausage and chips . I have a vague memory that there was a tripe shop by the trolley bus stop in Anderson Street ..... but it was nearly 60 years ago so it could just be me hallucinating !
