North Shields v West Allotment Celtic - Friday 14/04/2014 13:08
The Robins bring down the curtain on their home campaign as local rivals West Allotment Celtic provide the opposition this coming Good Friday morning, 11.00am. The day should be just as memorable as Chester Le Street at home and South Shields away as the best side in the second division receive the championship trophy at full time. Of course West Allotment are the second best team and it will be great that they are our visitors on the day as they celebrate their own wonderful season and promotion. There are many links between the two clubs as Kevin Hughes/Ben Richardson come up against their former team as do Wilf Keilty and Paul Hogg. Let's also not forget a certain centre forward who will also be looking to bag a goal or two in the form of Rob Nolan. With ground hoppers aplenty, there should be a packed Daren Persson Stadium. Let's hope the contest is a tad more enthralling than the reverse fixture! Get yourselves along to show your appreciation to Graham, Andy and the boys, there is plenty more time to get your Easter weekend brownie points with the family afterwards! Just a reminder, Chirton Social Club opens at 10-00am and will be open afterwards.

BRING ON THE CHAMPIONS!
The Good Friday game against West Allotment will see us presented with the Northern League Second Division Trophy. This will take place after the final whistle. Please ensure you're in the ground in plenty of time, it will be busy as it's being attended by 200+ ground hoppers on a Northern League hop (Whitley Bay and Ashington follow). We are hoping to beat what we believe is the second division record attendance of 511 set at Spennymoor Town v Darlington RA in 2005/2006. Two entry gates will be in operation but there will be no take two of the presentation! We'll be having a group photograph taken in front of the Ultra's Terrace with the players and management pitchside and the Shields supporters (including club officials) amassed behind. This will take place after the presentation. Other than the clubs approved photographers no one else should encroach on the pitch either during the presentation or on the final whistle.
The Trophy will be present at the annual presentation night at Chirton Club where people will be allowed to have their pictures taken with it and any of the players. The date is to be confirmed but it'll be about 2 weeks after the season end.
South Shields 1 North Shields 3 13/04/2014 08:46
It was exactly 45 years to the day the The Robins won the Amateur Cup, and fitting that they won the EBAC Northern League Second Division Championship on the anniversary of that great day. These derby games are never easy and despite scoring what all thought was a good goal The Robins went in at half time a goal down. The Mariners scoring a deserved goal following a defensive slip up. The second period though was a different story. Manager Graham Fenton no doubt had some harsh words for his charges. The difference was clear for all to see and The Robins soon had the game settled with strikes from Dean Walker (2) and Dean Holmes. When the final whistle went the celebrations started in earnest, and the champagne corks were popped. A fantastic season brought about by the managerial trio of Graham Fenton, Andy Bowman and Brian Smith, not forgetting every player who has worn the red shirt this season. As for South Shields their committee need to be congratulated for keeping their club running while they source a new venue back in their own Town. The cross Tyne derbies have an atmosphere all their own. Let's hope they make it very soon. Up the Robins.
South Shields v North Shields - Saturday (3.07pm) 08/04/2014 19:44
The Robins make the trip to Peterlee on Saturday as South Shields await at their temporary home. After the classic encounter earlier in the season, anything half as dramatic would suit what is sure to be a healthy crowd. Who can forget the scenes of jubilation as John Parker scored a late late winner to spark an evening of celebration in NE29? A maximum return on Saturday will secure the championship for the Robins and would end West Allotments hopes of finishing top of the pile. South Shields are currently playing catch up and are playing for mid table pride at this stage. As per the reverse fixture the men from South of the Tyne will raise their game as they look to delay our possible celebrations. A fierce local derby which highlights what non league football is all about awaits, get yourself along if you are at a loose end, the players appreciate your support. A reminder that the match will kick off at 3-07 as part of Hillsborough tributes taking place this weekend, a kick off time that will be matched up and down the country as we all reflect on that tragic day.
