Good times are on their way back.
We have begun to re-unite with family, friends and acquaintances in recent weeks and the day we are welcomed back by our football club is visible on the horizon.
The club faced seemingly never-ending obstacles over the course of last season but is now thankfully able to build for a future led by the fans.
Triumphs have emerged from testing circumstances over the last year, with the newly-formed Gateshead Ladies side lifting the Durham FA Development Division title at the first attempt as well as reaching the Durham FA County Cup semi-final.
The Gateshead FC Academy has expanded to encourage home-grown talent to work through the ranks on their doorstep and make a name for themselves in Gateshead colours in a way that has never previously been possible.
Now we want to play our part once more.
In 2020, Gateshead Soul set up a crowd-funder to raise over £18,000 towards the club’s playing budget ahead of the 2020/21 season – a remarkable total and one we are still incredibly grateful for.
After considering last season’s incredible support, we have now decided to open up another crowd-funder for donations ahead of the new season to assist our club in the wake of COVID-19.
We want to ensure the club has the best possible chance at making this season a memorable one, and with your backing we hope to do just that.
Help minimise the effect of COVID-19 on player recruitment, to make sure Mike Williamson and the rest of the lads get off to the best possible start.
