Fri 22nd Mar 2013 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Gateshead Football Club’s next ‘home’ game will be played at Boston United’s  ground, a 368 mile round trip.

The game against Newport County has been postponed four times at three different grounds due to the weather and will now take place at Boston United's York Street stadium next Thursday, 28th March.

The Blue Square Bet Premier side have been forced to abandon their home, Gateshead International Stadium for the rest of the season due to drainage problems.

The club will have staged home games at eight different grounds in the 2012/13 season including; Hartlepool United, Carlisle United, Middlesbrough, York City, Blyth Spartans and now Boston United..

York Street is an A grade stadium covered on all four sides that has been used for both Football League and Conference Premier games.
