North Eastern Marine, Wallsend Athletic

HER Description

NEHL - A football ground stood between the Riverside and Newcastle to North Shields railway lines from the 1930s until the 1960s or 70s. It was presumably to service the industrial workers at the nearby colliery or Marine Engineering Works.

Update 11/07
Thanks to the helpful folk on the Wallsend Memories page who have assisted with a few queries. The ground was named 'Marine Park', and matches were played here by the workers of North Eastern Marine and Wallsend Athletic in the regional amateur leagues. Regular entertainment nights were hosted at the clubhouse.
