Today’s game is against table topping Montrose. Again I have high hopes for this game but I don’t know why. Perhaps it’s the performance away to Peterhead that has given me confidence. Perhaps because it’s a sunny day outside and I had a nice morning. I picked up a copy of the Berwick advertiser for my mum and then Ruth, Pippa and I walked from Spittal into town to meet Millie from Northern Soul Kitchen. We met at the cornerhouse cafe to discuss the website for Northern Soul Kitchen. I had set it up a year or so ago (www.northensoulkitchen.co.uk) and i was showing Millie some of the basics for editing it, adding an Instagram feed etc. All went well and Millie seemed very happy to play about with the website. We then had a walk around the town and bought a selection of cheese at the market. I also bought some fish from the Berwick shellfish company for lunch when we heading back to Spittal.
Arrival at Shielfield.
i arrived around 2pm, turnstiles closed so i went into the main building and got signed in. I thought i would help with a bit of camera work anyway so I was signed in as assistant cameraman. I helped out with a bit of camera work in the second half. I also placed an order in the club shop for a winter jacket, rain jacket, hoodie and a polo shirt.
well my optimism left me a little when Montrose (or Berwick) scored the first goal but we pulled a goal back in the 23rd minute so hope was again rising that we wouldn’t be on the end of a thumping. To be fair the team have been playing really well lately, even if the results don’t fully reflect that. Montrose sticking one in just before the break was not ideal to be honest. Berwick didn’t look beaten and always looked like they could pull one back. The team have had a better attitude since the change at the helm, and since the transfer window and signing strikers we have actually been scoring goals. A great freekick shot cross (shot cross is probably the best description) from new singing Willis curled into the net in the 63rd minute to level it at 2-2. Berwick looked like the could actually go on an win it but it wasn’t to be. Still a point at home to the league leaders couldn’t be described as a bad day at the office. I then took the camera down for Alan to film the post match interviews. I really enjoy them, Eric and Robbie do a great job as do the players in the post match interviews.
