Gateshead FC start their new season this weekend, here's all you need to know if you want to get to a Heed fixture this season

This coming season, which starts on Saturday, will be the club’s first season at step five since the 2018-19 campaign.

Following an impressive 2021-22 season where they won the National League North title by seven points, Gateshead are making a long awaited return to the top level of non-league football this weekend when they travel south to take on Dagenham and Redbridge in the opening weekend of the National League season.

Many Newcastle United fans hold a soft spot for the Heed following a series of loan deals between the two clubs which saw Newcastle youngsters play south of the Tyne to build experience of senior football.
