Bor­der bore

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - OPINION -

The Golden Years page in Post Match last Sun­day was fas­ci­nat­ing as usual, but half way through the piece on Pre­ston North End in the 1938 FA Cup Fi­nal, I couldn’t help a slight groan, as I saw the Scot­tish play­ers de­scribed as “from the north side of Hadrian’s Wall”.

Does no-one look at a map these days? Most of Northum­ber­land is north of the wall, as is part of Cum­bria. At its great­est ex­tent, the dis­tance from the wall to the Scot­tish bor­der is some­thing like 70 miles. – Jeff Lewis, White­field
