HER Description

NEHL - Boldon Star, a founding club of the Wearside League, presumably played at the ground which still remains adjacent to the site of Boldon Colliery. Boldon Star (also known as Boldon Colliery Star) became part of the league around 1888 with other cluvs such as Sunderland Swifts, East End Black Watch and Kensington.

The ground was austere for much of its life. By the 1910s a small shed was constructed though nothing more.

Boldon CA still play at the ground.
