The curtain has fallen on the season, and what a season its been!
One Cup Final and promotion to the Blue Square Conference North has left the Heed Army looking forward to the summer with excitement for the new season that’s round the corner.
Its safe to say we will see some face’s leave the Tynesiders in the summer and we will see new faces arrive. This years team has been one of the best for over 14 years and very much deserved the promotion and accolade that comes their way.
Ian Bogie and his assistant Jeff Wrightson have to take a lot of the praise for the success that the Tynesiders have had. The pair who were childhood friends have transformed Gateshead with the professional touch the team needed.
While we are still talking about praise, Chairman Graham Wood and Directors Brian Waites and Derek Bell have been the men who have master minded the rise of GFC off the pitch. Over the space of two and a half years the difference between GFC of 2005 and GFC of 2008 is immense.
You only have to look at the club site to see the number of sponsors and companies working with Gateshead.
As a result the club as a hole has raised higher than most Heed fans could have dreamed, not only Have we gained promotion to the Conf North, but the fan base and interest in all thing Heed is on the rise, Thanks to these three man and the unsung hero’s behind the sense!!
