SASH SPONSORING LOCAL TEAMS

Posted by on

We've teamed up with some great local sporting clubs!

Shildon Railway Cricket Club & Shildon AFC

Established in 1909 the cricket club initially used a ground situated south-west of the local wagon works and played in local leagues.

In the 1950's the British Railway Staff Association provided a new sports complex off Hackworth Road in Shildon

Within a few years of opening, the hard work done on maintaining the cricket ground gained favourable reputation, which later resulted in league cup finals and league representative matches being played here

Definitely well worth going to watch a game and enjoy the club grounds.

Shildon AFC

Formed in 1890 as Shildon Town, the Railwaymen joined the Auckland and District league and in 1894 merged with the Rangers and Heroes to become Shildon United, unfortunately the club folded in 1900 due to financial problems.

A re-formed club joined the Northern League in 1903 to replace Stockton St John’s. In 1907, Shildon joined the semi-professional ranks of the North Eastern League, finishing second in season 1932/33.

The Dean Street turnstiles and distinctive grandstand were erected in 1923. A £45,000 grant saw new dressing rooms and a social club built beneath the stand 60 years later.
