North Shields v Newcastle United Reserves 08/12/2013 22:01
A gate well in excess of 500 is expected on Wednesday evening for the visit of Peter Beardsley's Newcastle Reserves. This Northumberland Senior Cup game will kick off at 7.30pm so please make sure you are there early. FOR THOSE WHO FANCY A PINT BEFORE THE MATCH, PLEASE NOTE CHIRTON SOCIAL CLUB WILL BE OPEN FROM 6pm. ALCOHOL IS NOT SOLD OR ALLOWED INSIDE THE GROUND. There will also be security stewards on duty, and a police presence in and around the ground. Shields are in a rich vein of form at the moment but this will be their toughest test of the season. Peter Beardsley's young charges will be all out to regain the prize they lost last term. With a full strength squad to select from manager Graham Fenton will have the hardest job on the night, when he decides who starts and who doesn't. This will not be an easy task for Newcastle as The Robins have the highest goal scoring side and the best defence in the entire Northern League. All in all a great night is in prospect, so why not come along and support The Robins on this special night. Please note entry charges are £5 for adults and £3 for concessions. It would greatly help gate staff if as many people as possible brought the correct money when entering the ground. Up the Robins.
Whitehaven 0 North Shields 4 - Full Time 07/12/2013 18:45
The Robins continued on their merry way this afternoon as Whitehaven were the latest team to receive a comprehensive defeat (our eighth win in a row in all competitions). The lads were quickly into gear as Adam Scope fired in an unstoppable opener. Soon after Scope was at it again with a cool finish into the bottom corner. Although never quite at their fluent best, the lads were certainly in full control as Ball was rarely threatened. When Whitehaven gave away a free kick on the stroke of half time, the ball was whipped in for Joe Elliott to make it 3. Whitehaven made tactical changes in the second half but in all honesty, the game was a long way gone for the hosts. Gareth Bainbridge then put the icing on the cake with an excellent fourth. Tempers started to fray late on but thankfully no red cards were issued. With other results going our way, the table looks very healthy but there is a long way to go. Next up is Newcastle Reserves on Wednesday evening.

Whitehaven v North Shields 01/12/2013 15:55
Shields make their longest trip of the season next Saturday. A 3pm kick off is scheduled providing the weather is fine.These are the games that are vital to the club's promotion challenge, so your support is vital also. Forget the 10-0 win earlier in the season, the home club will be up to put that right. The Robins though are proving to be a tougher nut than in previous seasons and determined not to repeat the collapse of earlier years. The home pitch will be nice and flat and just the surface for a footballing side like Shields. The bus will stop at Brampton on the way home, after a 9.30am departure from the Darren Persson Stadium, so why not join us and cheer on the lads who have brought so much entertainment to the canny folk of Shields this season. Up the Robins.
North Shields 5 Darlington RA 1 30/11/2013 21:47
Shields continued in their rich vein of form with a 5-1 demolition of a very good RA side this afternoon. There was no stopping Graham Fenton's lads as they went four up through Gareth Bainbridge (2), Adam Scope and a Dean Holmes screamer before the break. The RA battled back after the break but Holmes went on to double his tally before another late penalty brought some consolation to the visitors.Shields now have a goal difference of +60 which will stand them in good stead come the end of the season. The gate today was recorded at 151 a little disappointing considering the way the side is playing at the moment. Not to worry though no doubt Santa Claus had a lot to do with the missing fans as Christmas looms on the horizon. It's Whitehaven away next Saturday and there are still a few seas left on the bus. Anyone wishing to go should contact any committee member to book a seat. Up the Robins.

Apart from what is currently being served up on the pitch, there are other positive signs with regards to the direction the club is going. Something which has become clear this season, is the number of people proud to wear North Shields FC branded clothing and display other club products. Please speak to any club official with regards to obtaining general club merchandise (mugs, scarves, car stickers,badges etc) and we will happily try to accommodate, although hats are currently out of stock and not available. The club can also provide t-shirts, jumpers and replica shirts, although these are purchased via our suppliers on an individual basis. For these requirements, please speak to Kevin Larkham, although time is running out for Christmas orders! Let's build on what we are currently doing and turn the town of North Shields red! It is always very encouraging when out and about in the town when you see folk proudly showing their Robins colours!
North Shields v Darlington RA - Preview 28/11/2013 17:52
Darlington RA head to Tyneside on Saturday for what should be an excellent second division contest. Games against RA are always attractive spectacles and in recent times have certainly went the Robins way in NE29. Our visitors will be no pushovers and the lads will need to work extremely hard for the three points on offer. Dan Smart will return to the squad after injury but Adam Forster could still miss out. With fringe players not letting the club down on Tuesday night, the management team will have some tough calls to make. After the fantastic attendance against South Shields, let's hope people want to see more of this excellent squad and another healthy crowd is recorded.
Alnwick Town 1 North Shields 3 27/11/2013 11:58
Shields won a bruising encounter at the other St James Park in Alnwick last night easing into the next round. Goals from Dean Holmes in the first half, and Gareth Bainbridge (2) in the second period were enough. A battling Alnwick team scored a late consolation from the penalty spot near the end. With no injuries and the game watched by the returning Dan Smart the homesters were beaten by a better team on the night. Alnwick will pull clear from a relegation position without any doubt. The draw for the next round has not been made yet but the Robins will be hopeful of one of the big boys in the next round at The Daren Persson Stadium. Next up are Darlington RA on Saturday and a return to league action. Up the Robins.
