South Moor FC

HER Description

NEHL - A football ground was opened around the mid 20th century at Quaking Houses, presumably for South Moor FC. There was previously a ground immediately south of Fourth Street, however by the 1960s it had moved to this location.

On Google Earth satellite imagery, the site was still allotments in the 1940s, so it is likely this ground was bedded in in the 1950s. It featured a small pavilion on the top right corner of the ground, though doesn't feature many other facilities.

South Moor took part in the Tyneside Senior League against teams such as Swalwell, Seaton Burn, Shotley Bridge and Consett.

The ground is still open, though appears to be a general recreational field with South Moor AFC playing at the old cricket field adjacent.
