Newcastle RLFC 1936-38.

Newcastle RLFC 1936/7 and 1937/8

 

I'm gathering information on a defunct Rugby League club which was based in Newcastle-on-Tyne, and then County Durham, from 1936 until 1938.

 

I'm interested in press cuttings, photos, match programmes, the lot. Might anyone be able to help?

 

The jackpot/long shot, of course, would be to speak to someone who saw Newcastle RLFC play. (Better still, someone who played for them.) But, yeah, it's a bit late in the day, isn't it?

 

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.

Featherstone rovers were close to moving to Newcastle during that period

There's some footage of them on the Pathe news reels somewhere.

The fully researched story is available here

The paperback is over £10 I think but just £2.50 as a PDF download. I know John and he put a lot of work into this, going through local newspaper archives in Newcastle.

Thanks for that - I've already been in touch with John. I just want to see what people have in the way of programmes or other memorabilia. Plus, if I can interview someone who was around all those years ago, that would be great.

 

Cheers.
