Gateshead: Club Profile
After The Heed’s relegation from the Football Conference in 1998, it was more than 10 years before we’d meet again; our two matches during the 2009-10 Blue Square Premier campaign notable for different reasons. First, there was a 5-3 win indoors in which Charlie Griffin nabbed a hattrick. And second, a 1-0 victory at their place; the first game we played after securing the title that season.
Since then, the Heed were a mere 90 minutes from promotion to the League themselves in 2014. Cambridge, however, ruined things with a 2-1 win in the Conference playoff final. We know who we’d rather have come up…

Travel Information – Distance: 245 miles
It won't surprise you that Gateshead is one of the longest trips undertaken, and those who drive will have to be willing to become well-acquainted with the A1. It's almost all you're going to see; it will be A1/A1(M) until the A194 junction just north of Washington Services.
From here, follow the A194 to its junction with the A184 and turn left. After around 3 miles, the Gateshead International Stadium should come into view.
The stadium, being an international sports venue, boasts a modest car park that can accommodate both coaches and cars, and shouldn't be too perturbed by the anticipated number of supporters on a matchday.
Station: GATESHEAD STADIUM
Services to: NEWCASTLE (for STEVENAGE, LONDON KINGS CROSS)
Gateshead Stadium Metro station isn't too far from the stadium, but it isn't exactly close. From the station, turn right along St James' Road and pass some trees to your right for about 20 metres.
Immediately on your right will be a path and cycleway running straight up through a housing estate identified by random circles spaced evenly along the way. If you continue walking along here, you will reach Park Road, and the ground will be directly opposite.
