August 7th 2006
Moor Park
Chester-Le Street Town
v Gateshead
Pre-season friendly (score 1-2)

Moor Park has been the home of Chester-le-Street Town since 1980,the club was originally founded as Chester-le-Street Garden Farm after there formation in 1972.After progressing to the Wearside league in 1977 they changed their name to 'Town',and became members of the Northern League in 1980,winning promotion at the first attempt.

The Cestrians have spent £100,000 on bringing their home in Chester Moor up to Northern League standards,this includes a 200 seater stand,covered and uncovered terracacing,and floodlights.Moor Park has a very homely feel about it,hidden away on the A167 the money spend on the improvements has been wisely spent,and it's maybe one of the best grounds in the ANL.
