Hebburn Town FC 1912-2012 100 YEARS IN BRIEF

H

ebburn was very different back in 1912, the year the football club was formed. The collieries that had changed it from a small agricultural hamlet to a cosmopolitan but pretty grimy industrial town were nearing peak employment of 1,864 men; the shipyards launched by Andrew Leslie were in full vigour; and the town, eleven years earlier, had welcomed a diminutive Frenchman called Alphonse Reyrolle. Reyrolle opened an engineering works, which initially employed just 50 men, in the former dye factory next to St Aloysius’s church. At its peak, Reyrolles would employ 12,000 men from a wide range of backgrounds, religions and cultures, and export to 70 countries being known worldwide. The company also started a football team, and, encouraged by industrialist and mine owner Sir Ralph Carr-Ellison, another famous name in Hebburn history, he provided the sports ground on which team still plays on in the Northern League. The football team formed in 1912 were elected to the second division of the Jarrow and District Junior League. There had been plenty of football teams in the before 1912, most notably Hebburn Argyle – who kicked off in 1882 by Father Toner, the priest at St Aloysius’s. The town had so many Scots, they became known as the Tyneside Highlanders. Pre-World War 1 derby games with Jarrow would attract crowds of 8,000. The Geordie town also had shinty and curling clubs and even an annual Highland Games which was organised by the Hebburn Celtic Society. This 1912 team progressed, and flourished in the 1930s, followed by a wartime season in the North

Eastern League, won the Durham Challenge Cup in 1943, and then returned to the Northern Combination where they stayed until 1958. In 1959-60, Reyrolles as we were still known as, had another season in the terminally ailing North Eastern League but finished bottom with just eight points. The Tyneside club then had 28 pretty indifferent seasons in the Wearside League, though they won the league in 1966 and the Monkwearmouth Cup in 1968. In 1988 the name was changed to Hebburn and an application was made to join the Northern League – though it was before the days of automatic promotion and relegation and there wasn’t a vacancy. The ground was improved, other clubs canvassed and then Hebburn got a lucky break when North Shields created a vacancy by deciding to play elsewhere. The team which had finished fifth in the Wearside League and then played its first Northern League game on August 19 1989, winning 2-1 at Shotton Comrades, before winning promotion and the Durham Challenge Cup in 1992 before being relegated – contentiously – for failing to meet ground criteria. The club then won the Craven Cup in 1999-2000. In the 2011-12 season, Hebburn Town reached the FA Cup fourth qualifying round and a dream tie at neighbours Gateshead, from whom they were separated by 125 league places. This was the club’s furthest ever run in the competition and the Hornets also secured promotion to the Northern League Division 1 for their centenary year.

The Platinum Lounge G reat to see the lads back to form with two excellent victories. First the 4-2 win at Marske followed by a tremendous performance against FA Vase semi-finalists Shildon on Tuesday evening.

Shildon are a class side yet we deservedly took the lead in the first half and added to this shortly after half time; both goals great efforts from Stu Nicholson and Paul Gardiner. Shildon were not going to “lie down” and they were back on level terms midway through the second half. Hebburn raised their game again and were rewarded with the winner in the last minute with a fine effort from Wayne Gredziak.

We welcome our opponents today who have made the short journey north from Durham City and hope they have a pleasant afternoon on South Tyneside. The Citizens have beaten us twice this season, in the league and in the Durham Challenge Cup” so we will be looking to secure a victory today. Durham City dropped down from the Evo-Stik league this season and have had mixed results. They are now just above us in the league having played more games. We have managed to fulfil most of our fixtures during the dreadful winter and early spring and after today have one home game left against Spennymoor Town next Saturday. We also extend a warm welcome to our three match officials and wish them an incident and controversy free afternoon. Finally, we would like to send best wishes from everyone at Hebburn Town to Stuart Nicholson who gets married today. We wish him and his new bride all the best but hope it does not affect his form as he is “on fire” at the moment.

The Dugout W ell, a superb performance from the lads against a very good Shildon side and another three valuable points.

I spoke to the lads only briefly before the game to say that we had returned to our old ways of playing against Bishops and Marske and that if they repeated that against Shildon I believed they would get a result. And wow, they didn’t let me down. Mind you we do it the Hebburn way, hearts in mouth, take a deserved 2-0 lead, throw it away and then snatch a winner in the last minute from Gredz who enjoyed it as much as anyone against his old club. The lads from back to front were brilliant and showed just why I brought them to the club and that we have hopefully come out of our bad spell and can finish the season on a high. The only disappointment out of the game was for John Toomey. He has made a great recovery from a broken ankle and has made a few brief appearances lately but he started the game and unfortunately broke down after 5 minutes. However after a visit to hospital it’s not as bad as we all

feared and we should see the Pennywell Pele back in a Hebburn strip in about 2 weeks. We face Durham today without Dean and Stu Nicholson. Stu is getting married this morning and all the lads have been down to see him before his big moment, having our picture taken with the gruesome twosome (I mean Dean and Stu) We would have loved to all have gone to the after party but unfortunately Durham couldn’t grant our request of a Friday night game but we will be heading along to the night time to join in the celebrations. So best wishes for the future to the new Mr and Mrs Stuart Nicholson… does this poor lass really know what she is getting into. Let us hope for a good game and we can join them in good spirits afterwards.

hen speaking to someone from south of York, the answer to their second question after telling someone you hail from Durham is usually “about fifteen miles south of Newcastle”.  However, whilst making the usual introductions one does as a fresher, one knowledgeable chap’s second question was “do Durham City still play at that nice ground down by the river?”  After gathering my thoughts I had to inform him that alas they did not, and had done was to become a norm in the subsequent years for various clubs; moving from an old ground with character and location to a purpose built arena on the edge of an industrial estate. That nice ground by the river that he spoke of was Ferens Park, named after Alderman Ferens, the President of the club who purchased the ground for Durham to play at after reforming in 1950.  Two seasons later City made their Northern League bow, finishing 12th of 14 clubs in their first season before improving to 4th place in their second.  It was in this era that City had their biggest attendance when 7,000 packed in to Ferens Park to watch City lose 0-3 at the hands of Tranmere Rovers.  In 1993-94 Durham City won the Northern League for the first time, and under ambitious Chairman Bob Kerry they signalled their intent to accept their place in the Northern Premier League.  However, at this time Ferens Park did not meet the criteria for promotion and the new ground that was being built on Belmont Industrial Estate on the outskirts of the city was suffering delays in construction.  As a result City were refused permission to take their place in the Northern Premier League and remained in the Northern League, having to ground share with Chester-le-Street for the 1994-95 season whilst New Ferens Park was completed. City did move in to New Ferens Park for the start of the 1995-96 Northern League season but were

3G or n by James Williams

unable to replicate their previous achievement in winning the first division until 2007-08.  This time City did meet the ground requirements and they took their place in the Unibond First Division North for the 2008-09 season.  Not satisfied with a season of consolidation, City strengthened their team with a number of former youngsters released from the region’s professional ranks, and won the Unibond First Division North at their first attempt.  They strengthened further in the close season ahead of their debut season in the Unibond Premier, but were dealt a devastating blow when the Unibond administrators announced that City would not be allowed to take up any place in the Conference North or even the Unibond play-offs due to their 3G artificial pitch. At the start of the 2006-07 season Durham City


Matchday Programme April 13 2013 Durham City

not 3G installed a 3G artificial pitch at New Ferens Park, in order to increase revenues from hiring it out, and also to reduce wasted expenditure due to match postponements during the harsh winter months.  The 3G pitch installed by Support in Sport (SIS) came with a 1,700 hour estimated lifetime as opposed to a conventional grass pitch which has an estimated usage of 300 hours.  City calculated that the pitch would last a minimum of six seasons and be used by all teams at the club, from the seniors down through the youth teams of both boys and girls.  In addition to this, the pitch became a revenue stream in its own right, with then League Two club Darlington hiring the pitch for training when their own practice ground was out of action as a result of inclement weather. City drew their first game in the Unibond Premier, a solid start as the new signings were still gelling

together.  However, it was after the first game that City were told that they would not be promoted or allowed to play in the play-offs due to their pitch.  FIFA are big fans of the artificial pitches and they are approved for use in UEFA competitions, however the authorities in England have differing views.  City knew from when they first installed it that they were not permitted for FA Cup competition, during which time they had to play their games at nearby Brandon United.  Whilst the artificial surface was allowed in the Northern League and the Unibond League, the Conference divisions had different rules.  On hearing this news, Durham’s main sponsor withdrew from their financial support from the club, apparently not happy at a ceiling being placed on City’s potential progress and therefore their exposure. As a result Durham had to CONTINUED

CONTINUED release the registration of all their first team playing squad, as they had no budget with which to pay the players their expenses and appearance fees.

It was expected that the club would drop back to the Northern League, but following a meeting of the committee it was decided that the club would fulfil its fixtures in the Unibond Premier League.  City drafted in youngsters from their youth academy that is run by former Sunderland and QPR defender Richard Ord.  In their first game following the dissolution of the first team squad Durham travelled to Stockbridge Park Steels where their young team was beaten 6-0.  This was to become the theme for the season for City and their young team.  The next four games saw City lose 7-2, 4-1, 4-0 and 8-0.  As the season continued so did the heavy defeats, but City managed to fulfil their fixtures against all the odds.  In reality the team was mainly made up of 17 and 18 year olds with little playing experience, bolstered on occasion by a smattering of players brought in from the Northern League.  On 23rd January 2010 City travelled to Boston United, a club that had been playing league football less than three years previously.  City lost 10-0 and their plight was brought to the attention of the nation on Sky Sports’ flagship show Soccer Saturday, whose host Jeff Stelling was rooting for Durham to register a point having lost all of their games.  On 13th March 2010 Stelling and City fans were able to cheer the first points of the season following a 2-1 away win at FC United of Manchester, the club formed by Manchester fans disgruntled with the financial burden placed on the club following the Glazer family takeover.  City

won their next game as well, a 4-3 home victory over Whitby Town, but following a point deduction they finished the season back on zero after losing the remainder of their games, completing the season with a 6-2 away defeat at Buxton. It was widely expected that City would drop back down to the Northern League and begin to rebuild, but the club decided to stay and fight in the Evo-Stik First Division North, the new name for the league they had won just 12 months earlier.  Last summer the club resigned their place in the Evo-Stik and reapplied for the Northern League, in part due to their struggle to attract crowds to New Ferens Park. Durham is almost equidistant from Newcastle and Sunderland and the split of football fans in Durham itself is pretty equal, if not slightly in favour of the red and whites.  One reason some Newcastle fans have previously been reluctant to support the club is the previous tie-in between Sunderland AFC and City, who wore Sunderland away shirts and hosted the Premier League side’s reserve team. Having lived in Durham for over 28 years (minus a break for university) I have not once seen any advertisement for Durham City.  In pubs and chip shops throughout the North East I have seen adverts for Northern League games, Northern Alliance games, Wearside League games and Sunday league games, but never one that features the name Durham City. Now is the time for City to grab the fans that are becoming disillusioned and priced out of higher level football and bring them in the club.  Unlikely as it seemed back in August 2009, the City of Durham still has a football team to be proud of.

A Brief History of

Durham City

W

hen the Third Division North kicked off its opening season in 1921, Durham City, Ashington and Darlington were among the twenty member clubs. It was a meteoric rise for Durham, who had previously played just a single season in the post-war Victory League and two in the North-Eastern. The Citizens lasted seven years in the Football League, dropping back into the North Eastern after finishing 21st of 22 clubs and seeing Carlisle United elected in their place. A decade later they disbanded altogether, reforming for a two-season spell in the Wearside League before joining the Northern League in 1952. Twice in the second round proper of the FA Cup, City had to wait until 1994 for their first major success in the league, winning the championship by seven points only to be denied promotion when work on a purpose-built stadium – the fifth home ground in the club’s history - wasn’t completed on time. Six years after reaching the semi-final of the FA Vase, there were no such problems in the summer of 2008, Durham’s second title seeing the club break 100 points in winning thirty-two and drawing six of their

forty-two league games. Northern Premier League Division One North champions the following season and losing finalists in the Durham Challenge Cup, City’s upward movement came to a sudden, almost catastrophic halt when the 3G pitch at New Ferens Park was declared unsuitable for Conference football. Without the prospect of any further promotion, the club’s main sponsor withdrew his backing and Durham were forced to field a team of teenagers from a local academy. A six-point deduction meant the club finished the season on a total of zero points, winning the first of only two league victories at FC United of Manchester in mid-March and amassing a negative goal difference of -141. Consolidating back in the Evostik North, City finished a creditable ninth last season but took the decision to drop back down to the Northern League due to operating costs and the continuing struggle to attract spectators. This year has been one of consolidation, Adam Furness’ team currently sitting eleventh in the table with fifty-three points from forty-two games. The Hornets have met the Citizens twice so far, losing 4-2 in the league and 2-0 in the Durham Challenge Cup. We hope for more goals this afternoon – and for the three points to stay at Hebburn.
