At 8.30am on 13 July, the colliery bands of Durham began their march towards the city's market place. The miners' banners went with them, signposts to the past, a visible display of pride in the region's history. From there followed a slow march towards the County Hotel on Old Elvet. The bands played, the march went on to the racecourse, and the banners were strapped to the surrounding fences.

22 September 2013 12:00 AM
Three stony-faced men; Joe Kinnear, the director of football, Mike Ashley, the owner of Newcastle United and Graham Carr, the club's chief scout, all sat together in the directors' box at St James' Park at a game for the first time yesterday. They cannot have enjoyed what they saw. Newcastle swings as quickly as any club in England from delirium to despair. Victory would have sent them second in the Premier League, at least for a couple of hours. It did not come. Instead, they fell to a newly-promoted side assembled for significantly less than they were. That will not go down well.
