@Coatsy - I know there are a couple of members that have delved into the history of the Bedlington Football teams and I believe the most info they found was from the Northumberland Archives =  the old newspaper records held at the  Woodhorn Colliery Museum.

i was there today and just started to look, but the problem i hit so far is the main paper at the time was the Blyth paper and they mention the Ashington and District Leagues but only really the fixtures and results nothing about players or match reports ect

When I did the research into Bedlington Mechanics FC and then widen it to all the local pit village teams in Bedlingtonshire, I focused on after WW2, from 1945-1965. I have some detail regards various Choppington teams that played in either the Miners Welfare League, the Ashington Welfare League or there was one (Choppington High Pit FC)who  played in the Coquetdale League. However, on looking at these teams after WW2 there is no mention of a Choppington United FC.

You might do better searching old copies of the Morpeth Herald, as well as the Blyth News and/or Ashington Post.

I did try and find some details of Bedlington United FC from the very early 1900's - 1930, but really struggled as the newspapers only carried reports etc. direct from the clubs. If no-one bothered to report on the teams and results then there wasn't anything in the papers.

@Coatsy - see above from Ovalteeny.

If you are on Facebook then there is a group under Choppington. I am not a member of that group but I have been in touch with the Admin - Brian Jenkinson - and I copied your two comments into the message I sent him. Brian did not say that he had info that you are after just suggested you join the group and he may be able to help.

@Ovalteeny i have looked thought the Blyth News and they only really report the Fixtures and results, Now the Morpeth Herald did no match reports for all the teams in that league but the dates i want is when there no Morpeth Herald papers anywhere in the archives.

 

@Alan Edgar (Eggy1948) thank you and i will look for them on facebook now

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
