Gateshead suffer another postponement

Gateshead's Blue Square Bet Premier clash at home to Kidderminster Harriers tonight has been postponed.

It's the tenth match at the International Stadium to have been called-off in the last three months due to ongoing problems with the pitch. A new drainage system which was installed last summer has failed, leaving the playing surface waterlogged.

The Heed's next scheduled home game is against title chasers Wrexham on Tuesday 19th February. Club officials say if the pitch is still unplayable by then, an alternative venue in the North East will be arranged to stage the tie.


Gateshead Football Club sack manager

Gateshead Football Club confirmed this morning that they had sacked their manager.

Ian Bogie had been in charge at the International Stadium for more than six years and he led the club to two promotions during that time.

Bogie lost his job after a poor run of form this season, which has seen Gateshead drop into the bottom half of the Blue Square premier league.
