Welcome to Heaton Stannington FC website: Celebrating 75 Years This Month 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.
Tuesday 26 August is the 75th anniversary of Heaton Stannington's first Northern League game on 26 August 1939. There will be a special anniversary programme for the Alnwick match on the day before.
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 either Thornaby or Stokesley. 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. Dates to be arranged.
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.
FA Vase Draw
With a bye in the first round, the road to Wembley starts with a second qualifying round away tie to either Colne or Penrith on Saturday 4 October. Involvement in the FA Qualifying Cup will unfortunately have to wait until next season.
Any club news over the close season will be published on this website or on our Twitter account at @HeatonStan
