South Shields Football Club aims to break into the Football League (FL). Between 1919 and 1930, South Shields had a club which at times thrived in the second tier of the FL. In 2020, the club successfully steered its way through the challenges of the COVID-19 lockdown by taking advantage of the grants available from the government and executing other fundraising activities. The club feels the experience has made them stronger and more determined than ever to achieve their long term goals. It will use 62% of the investment to replace its stadium's current dilapidated pitchside barrier with new ones and 38% as working capital that it will use through the next 12 months as it moves towards a sustainable model.
