Founded by Peter Curtis in 2009 North East Sport has grown to become one of the largest grassroots clubs in the North East. We currently have 22 teams ranging from under 6s all playing within local leagues.
In June 2015 we achieved Development Charter Standard, which is the second highest quality mark and were also awarded Durham County FA Fair Play and Respect Award Winners.
We are now part of the FA Mentoring Programme which has been a real benefit for us.
We have won numerous awards including being recognised by the Barclays Premier League, we currently have over 300 active member players playing every week. We pride ourselves on giving people the opportunity to play football without regard to their ability, race, religion, or background.
Our home is at Monkwearmouth Academy Sunderland where we have built strong links with the local community and the Academy.
We remain very much a grassroots club and are thankful for over 80 volunteers who help our club every week.
Unfortunately we find it extremely difficult to get any support and has a consequence the facilities we use are not great. This would be a massive help to us if we could get these goals as it would improve the goal mouths significantly and allow us to look at repairing the dreadful state they are in. It would also enable us to run more tournaments something that our members are extremely keen to see happen. We are a deeply rooted community organisation ran by local people for the benefit of people.
"Passionate about the community, passionate about making a difference to peoples lives, our success is built on our reputation. It's not what you do in life it’s what you leave behind. "
Your help would be really appreciated.
