Wearside League Division 2
Wednesday 5th May 2020

Durham FC are another new club in the Wearside League, and yet another carrying the name of the city. The club started in 2008 as Sacriston Community FC with a couple of youth teams, before becoming the junior set up at Durham City. In 2020, the junior set up left Durham City and set up by themselves, adding a senior side and relocated to Framwellgate Moor. The club now boast 12 teams, playing in the Durham FA, Russell Foster and Pinpoint Youth leagues.

after the initial free-kick was saved, then a corner kick was met by Adam McGuiness, who headed


Nathan Stevenson halved the deficit from the penalty spot, before West End regained their

advantage, with a flying diving header from  Robbie Williamson on the half hour. 

Durham got back into the match when Glenn Hendrix was unmarked to head in, but again, the

visitors went two ahead, when Ryan King was brought down in the box before dispatching the


Surprisingly there was just one goal added to the tally in the second half, with Ryan King scoring

the best goal of the night, his right foot drive in the 86th minute but the gloss on a good away
