Two years after Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End merged to form United, an amateur club was formed in the front room of Leazes Terrace. As our beloved United were in the process of lifting the FA Cup three times in five years, the club they beat to formation by two years, Bohemians, were moving to a new home in Gosforth that was named in honour of their secretary.

On Saturday 3 September, that home will host a celebration of 60 years of Gosforth Bohemians playing at Benson Park, while also officially opening the refurbished clubhouse. With no Premier League fixtures, there's a wealth of non-league action on display in the region, including the Northern Alliance First Division clash between Gosforth Bohemians and Newcastle East End at Benson Park.

The action starts at 10.30am when the Bohs 'B' team kick-off followed by the 2.30pm kick-off between Bohs and East End. In this age when football is becoming more and more expensive to follow, you can catch both games for £2.

As well as looking to bring the voice of all Newcastle United fans together, NUFC Fans United recognise the importance of improving links and engagement with all aspects of the local community. If you want to watch some football on Non League Day and spend time chatting to fellow NUFC fans, then Benson Park is an ideal location. 

Benson Park is a 15 minute walk along the Great North Road from Regent Centre Metro Station, near Gosforth's Three Mile Inn pub. Turn left onto Polwarth Drive, then left onto Layfield Road and the after turning right you'll see the entrance to the ground on your left.
