Durham Amateur Football Trust

March 24, 2009 Leave a comment

With the very kind cooperation of Crook Town Football Club the trust are organising a weekend of under 14 football on July 18th and 19th at Crook’s Millfield ground. The idea is to make today’s youth aware of the importance local football had to ‘ordinary’ people in the immediate post-war years and to record the successes of County Durham’s teams in a national competition. Trust committee man, Tom Kelly, has contacted teams  to take part in the colours of the four Northern League clubs who played at the old Wembley Stadium in the FA Amateur Cup Final during the 50s and 60s. They will wear replica shirts of the period. For more details  of the trust’s work visit its website  at   

Why not become a member of the trust?
