Welcome to Heaton Stannington FC website: Celebrating 80 Years playing at Grounsell (formerly Newton) Park (1935-2015).
Wednesday 26 August. Heaton Stannington 3-2 Easington Colliery
FA CUP FEVER (PART 2 ON THE ROAD TO WEMBLEY)
After a 39 year gap, Heaton Stannington made a successful return to the FA Cup with a 3-1 home win over Norton and Stockton Ancients in the extra preliminary round. A huge crowd saw Wright, Wear and Rowntree put the Stan 3-0 up (1-0 at half time).
The Stan are now away to Whitley Bay in the preliminary round on Saturday (29/8) at 3PM. Hillheads is half way between Whitley Bay and Monkseaton metros and we are hoping for a big following from the Stan Army.
The draw has been made for the first qualifying round on 12 September. If the Stan beat the Bay then they are away to Matlock Town of the Northern Premier League who are from Derbyshire.
Ernest Armstrong Memorial Cup
In the cup for Northern League second division teams, the Stan have a bye to the second round where they have been drawn at home versus Whickham.
In the FA Vase first round qualifying, the Stan are away to Eccleshill United on 5 September. They play at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium in Wrose, Bradford. If they win, the Stan are away in the second round qualifying to either Birtley or Chester-le-Street on 3 October.
