Welcome to Heaton Stannington FC website: Celebrating 75 Years Since First Joining The Northern League
Heaton Stannington Football Club are a Northern League team who play their football at Grounsell Park, Newcastle. They were proud winners of the Northern Alliance Premier Division 2011/2012 and 2012 / 2013.
Last season was our first season back in the Ebac Northern League Division 2 after a sixty one year gap. We were delighted to finish in 5th place as well as reaching the semi final of the Ernest Armstrong Cup. We hope to push on and achieve more in 2014/2015.
Location and How to Find the Stan
Grounsell Park is in High Heaton on Newton Road and is round the corner from the Freeman Hospital and up the hill from the Corner House pub. The 38 bus from the centre of Newcastle stops across the road from the ground. It is approximately a 15 minute walk from Longbenton and a 20 minute walk from Ilford Road metro stations.
Northern League Cup Draws
In the draw for the Ernest Armstrong Cup, the competition for second division teams, the Stan have a bye to the second round where they will be home to Thornaby on Wednesday 3 December.
In the League Cup, which is for all Northern League teams, they again have a bye to the second round where they will play away against Marske United on Tuesday 4 November (7.45 kick off).
First Trophy of 2014/2015
Congratulations to Heaton Stannington on lifting their first international trophy.
On Thursday 10 July the Stan won their first trophy of the season and probably the UK's longest titled one. They defeated Shunde Youth Entrepreneur Association F.C. 17-2 to lift 'The 9th World Conference of Shunde Worldwide Friendship Association Friendly Football Match Cup'. Shunde were part of a trade and cultural delegation visit to England from China.
