Initially we started with 4 players but quickly built up the numbers to allow the club to enter 2 teams into local leagues for the 1991 – 92 season. We started playing friendly games on Saturday mornings using firstly Regent Farm school and then Broadway West Playing Fields. Once we joined the leagues we had to start playing our games on a Sunday. Our first season saw success for both teams in cup competitions winning both U10 & U11 NFA Central Youth Division cups and the U10s the Newcastle & District U10 League Cup.
The club has over the years built up the number of players and teams and for this season (2009-10) we have over 300 players ranging from 6 -19 years old. These players come together to form 24 teams.
• Chris Armstrong – Bury, Oldham Ath, Sheffield United and Reading
• Andy Ferrell – Newcastle United, Watford, Hereford United
• Clark Keltie – Darlington and Rochdale
• Ross Anderson – Coventry City
• Richard Nicholson – Carlisle United
• Mark Doninger – Newcastle United
• Paul Dummett – Newcastle United
• Dan Williams – Newcastle United
As part of the grant application the club had to gain Charitable Status which we did in April 2004 and the FA Charter Standard Status which was achieved in July 2003. The building work commenced in June 2007 and our club house opened in January 2008. We were honoured to have officially open the Club House in November 2007.
The club would like to thank everyone who has managed or helped in any way over the years to allow us to be in the position we are at present. A special thanks to all those players who over the years have worn the colours of Red House Farm and for bringing enjoyment to hundreds of people.
