Sports Fixtures You Won't Want to Miss This December
All your football, basketball, horse racing and rugby union fixtures for December
While England seek to avoid a leek-skin slip up against our Welsh friends, the desert will be alive with the passion of ‘the most beautiful game’ this World Cup. At home Newcastle have moved up a gear, replacing a run of draws with wins, and as a result have cemented their position in the Premiership’s top four. If they manage to hold on for a Champions League play-off spot it will be a remarkable effort. Mr Shearer thinks it’s unlikely, despite his allegiance to the Club, but who knows and it’s given the Toon something to sing about. Meanwhile on Wearside The Black Cats are continuing in decent form. It seems the team has much to offer and once again Sunderland supporters are in good spirits. That’s where the good news ends with both ‘Boro and The Pools under real pressure. Managerial changes are afoot at Middlesbrough and all being well, an exciting appointment in Michael Carrick will see improvement across the Club. Hartlepool also need changes as they sit at the foot of the division.

There have been calls on various international players to line up for their country in the Autumn Internationals. Coupled with the sad demise of two clubs the fixture list is changing its face somewhat. These are a few fixtures to get to and enjoy an excellent atmosphere – and watch a spirited group of players too. Their recent win against Bristol was one of the best displays fans have seen for some time and hopefully there’s more to come.
