Redcar Athletic FC played their last competitive game in the Northern League 2ndf Division on Nov 4th 2020, a 2-1 win over Jarrow FC , you can watch the highlights on the video attached. Since then the Covid 19 pandemic meant that the League was declared null and void and we have not returned to competitive action to date. However the whole club got a massive boost when it was announced that the FA were promoting the club to the Northern League Division One, after all the doom and gloom of Covid 19, after all the disappointing setbacks with the League getting declared null & void, now we had something to really look forward to and the whole club was lifted and a new wave of enthusiasm engulfed the management team, the players, the committee, the volunteers and the supporters. Redcar a town with a population of 65,000, who until 2018 had not had a team in the Northern League for 100 years now has a team in the Northern League Division One. After just three seasons in the Northern League Division 2, two of them cut short, we had achieved promotion ahead of our planned development plan, and now the hard work begins .......
Northern League Division One will bring its challenges and we want to be able to compete with the best teams in the division, but Covid 19 has hit clubs like ours financially and has not allowed us the best preparation for promotion. We are very busy at the moment promoting the club through sponsorship and the response has been incredible, season ticket sales are at their highest since we joined the Northern League but we still need to find more. We anticipate a bigger playing budget this season and we want to sign players who have competed at this level before, players who will match our ambitions and give us a chance of success.
To do this we are asking you, the people of Redcar, those that support the club to pledge their support and help lift Redcar Athletic FC to the next level, by donating your pledge you are helping the club with their development plans and your support would be massively appreciated.
