Gateshead FC (a): Team News & Match Updates

Today in the Vanarama National League Aldershot Town host Dover Athletic, Torquay United host Braintree Town and York City host Wrexham AFC.

The Imps take on Gateshead FC at The International Stadium. Kick-off is at 3.00pm.

We will have Match Updates & Photos RIGHT HERE and also below!

** City need 2 goals to equal the club record for away goals scored in a season of 50, set in the Fourth Division championship season of 1975-76.

** City need one more away win to equal the club record of 13 in the league, set in the Midland League championship season of 1908-09.

** If City do win the title today, it will be the tenth divisional championship for the first team:

1889-90 Midland League
1908-09 Midland League
1911-12 Central League
1920-21 Midland League
1931-32 Third Division North
1947-48 Third Division North
1951-52 Third Division North
1975-76 Fourth Division
1987-88 GM Vauxhall Conference

It will be the club's twelfth promotion - in addition to the nine titles listed above:

1980-81 Fourth Division (2nd)
1997-98 Division Three (3rd)

** You will note that the records we are trying to equal/surpass were all set in championship-winning seasons. How fantastic it would be to take the title 41 years to the day after the Fourth Division title win. That diving header by the big man is impossible to forget...
