About 300 there, 78 Rhyl fans....... bit of a grudge match, there'd been bovver at the prev encounter and theres much animosity between the 2.
They even had a police helicopter on!
Bangor won on pens
Was in North Wales for a gig so thought we'd give it a go for a laugh........... 24 hrs later we travelled direct to the north-east for the real derby @ Sid James
Slightly more fans in attendance but same amount of helicopters
I have seen Gateshead play both of those two clubs at the IS in the old Northern Prem days and I can vouch for the fact that their fans are nutters. The Wrexham fans who turned up a few weeks back were mad as well. Must be something in the North Wales air.
The great thing about Gateshead games is you can go in and sit next to an away fan. The vast majority are great and it makes for an entertaining day usually. I sat among the Wrexham fans a few weeks back and right behind a couple of Kidderminster fans on Saturday.
