TYNESIDERS TO HOST NEWPORT IN LINCOLNSHIRE

Gateshead's Blue Square Premier match with Newport County, which has been postponed four times at three different grounds due to weather, will now take place at Boston United's York Street.

The pitch at the Heed's International Stadium has been declared unplayable for the rest of the season so they are having to utilise other stadiums, mainly in the north of England, to complete their fixture list.

Their home match against Newport, which kicks off at 7.45pm on Thursday 28th March, will take place nearly 200 miles away, though.

York Street, which is an A Grade stadium, will be the eighth venue to host a Gateshead home match this season, with matches also played, or due to be played, at Hartlepool United, York City, Carlisle United, Middlesbrough, Blyth Spartans, Barrow, as well as their International Stadium.
