History: Southport - GATESHEAD (1977)

A reformed Gateshead F.C. was constituted to take their place in the NPL. By now, the Youth Stadium had been upgraded and renamed as Gateshead International Stadium. With a superb ground and a new dynamic board, Gateshead finally made progress, winning promotion from the NPL to the Alliance Premier League in 1983. With good sponsorship, Gateshead spent several seasons in the Football Conference and looked on the brink of regaining their coveted Football League place. But as the sponsorship money dried up, the club declined and spent the 2003-04 season in the Northern Premier League First Division. A 6th place finish was enough to win promotion to the Premier Division due to the restructuring of the National League System.
In March 2008 Gateshead announced the merger of Low Fell Juniors into the club to become Gateshead Juniors from the start of the 2008/09 Season. Over 200 young footballers ranging in age from under 6 to under 18 will be overseen by Gateshead chief executive Derek Bell. The under-17 team will represent the club in the FA Youth Cup.[1]
On May 3, 2008, Gateshead beat Buxton 2-0 in the Unibond Premier League Play-Off Final and were therefore promoted to the Conference North.
