The 1940's and 50's are acknowledged as the high point of Amateur Football in England, and in particular Durham County, with teams from the area selling out Wembley Stadium and winning the FA Amateur Cup on numerous occasions.
Durham Amateur Football Trust are a non-for-profit organisation that seeks to celebrate the rich football heritage of the north-east of England and promote interest in grass-roots sport by curating exhibitions, film nights and ‘talk-ins’, football tournaments and other events.
We currently have a permanent base at Shildon Locomotion Museum where our office is open to members of the public on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:00 – 16:00.
A full programme of touring and temporary exhibitions is underway for 2010/11, and further details can be found on our exhibitions page. If you would like further information on the work of the Trust, or if your organisation would like to host an event by us, please get in touch.
