Welcome to Heaton Stannington FC website: Celebrating 75 Years since first joining the Northern League (1939-40) and 80 Years playing at Grounsell (formerly Newton) Park (1935-2015).
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. The 2014/2015 season has ended with an eleven match unbeaten run and a top ten finish. Hopefully this will be enough to secure entry into next season's FA cup.
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.
In October 2015, the Stan will have played at Grounsell park for eighty years having first got the keys to the Newton Park quarry in the summer of 1934.
Honours in 2014/2015
Congratulations to Heaton Stannington on lifting their first international trophy. On Thursday 10 July 2014 the Stan won probably the world's longest titled football trophy. 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.
