First game???

Recommended Posts

Hello, taking my little boy to his first game, he is nearly 7, on Boxing Day. Unfortunately, due to work and family commitments, I have not been to a game myself for a few years!

Want him to have the full experience of match day, just like my dad did for me when I was little. So I was wondering where might be best to go for a pre match/post match drink - probably looking for sumwhere that will have a decent atmosphere but not too busy - we are travelling in by train.

thanks

The Navi.

 

Serious answer - Probably The Six Medals, over the road from the stadium. It's a Marston's pub and family friendly on matchdays (I believe drinks are even served in plastic glasses.)

Nice atmosphere, not too rowdy. Decent enough food (if you like a carvery then even better!)

Welcome to the forum and I would agree to the above.

Recently took my own grandson to his first game, he was happy with the Boro shop and taking in the atmos outside but being in the ground was the most important aspect for him.

Have a great day and hopefully the best of results

That'll be so much fun. Can't wait to take my son for a walk round the stadium and then into the GRFZ. I remember going to my first football match (England Sweden U16s) really vividly, and I was six as well, so hopefully it's an unforgettable day for him (and you!)

Yeah DZ has pretty much nailed this.  But depending on your boys character (quieter, rowdier, or like mine tazmainian devil) i found a small pub crawl through the town worked as most Boro fans in person are friendly , amenable and great with kids

 

enjoy buddy 😊

    • Boro flashback - This day the 29th January 1977 Boro 4 Hereford United 0 Since the 18th January 1972, when the mighty Boro beat Man City in the 3rd round of the FAC, the visit of Hereford United to Ayresome Park was to be my 11th home & away Boro FAC match Hereford were welcomed to Ayresome Park, without the famous Ricky George & George Radford, both who will forever go down in FAC history for their 2 goals which brought hundreds of onrushing parkers on to the pitch when, as a non league team, knocking 1st division Newcastle out of the FAC  Now Hereford, who in 5 seasons since  joining the football league are in the 2nd division, came to the Boro hoping for the fairytale to continue But...............                                              It was never going to be the case, I can still remember from my position dead centre of the holgate as Graeme Souness measured up to smash a thirty yarder in to the east end goal, I started to shout, don't shoot from there, gooooooaaaaaaalllllll And from then it was Davey Armstrong with a couple, including a penalty & Alan Willey with his1st FAC goal, the Boro cruised to the 5th round  Hereford finished bottom of the 2nd division that season  Big Jacks inaugural FAC Boro home match  Pat Cuff John Craggs  Terry Cooper  Graeme Souness  Stuey Boam  Willie Maddren  Tony McAndrew  David Mills  Peter Brine  Alf Wood  Davey Armstrong  Sub - Alan Willey replacing Alf Wood 
    • Well done for minding your p's and q's there. Something that was called while the lady of the public house walked through. Meant mind your pints and quarts. 
    • the origins of phrases sometimes have very strange explanations.......I always assumed that "taking the mick" was something to do with Ireland, but apparently Cockney rhyming slang...the one that always makes me smile is "he couldn't hit a cow's **** with a banjo"... why would anyone want to?
