About

Football is more than a game! Explore the story of football in South Tyneside this summer in a new exhibition at South Shields Museum and Art Gallery. Discover stories of players and fans from the early days and up to the present day, from the famous, to the local and unsung heroes of the game in South Tyneside. 

South Shields Football Club (SSFC) will feature prominently in the exhibition - 2019 is the club's centenary year of Football League membership – charting the Mariners’ evolution since its origins in 1888 through to the legendary FA Vase victory in 2017, and the club’s ongoing development and ambitions today.

As well as SSFC and Hebburn Town FC the many amateur teams of the Borough’s yesteryear will also be celebrated, from works’ teams including Reyrolle and Westoe Colliery, through to church and school teams.

Opening Times

Exhibition open Mon - Fri, 10am - 5pm. Sat: 11am - 4pm. Closed on Sundays (29 June 2019 - 12 Oct 2019)
