Deaf Hill United

HER Description

NEHL - A football ground was situated here from the 1890s to around the 1920s, and was likely the home of Deaf Hill United though may have been one of the other many teams in this area. Facilities were limited in nature, with a small shed/pavilion on the east side of the pitch with nothing more. Access was reached via Station Road.

Deaf Hill United formed around 1895, firstly playing friendlies but later competed in the Durham Amateur Cup and the South East Durham League with teams like Trimdon Grange, Sedgefield Town and Stillington Rovers. Deaf Hill United continued on for much longer than the ground itself, which seemed to dissipate in the 1920s.
