The Newcastle Falcons story dates back to 1877, when a group of old boys from Durham School met in a private house in Gosforth to discuss the formation of a new rugby club in the area. From there, the Gosforth Football Club was born, with its first game taking place in November of that year.Maintaining its links with Durham School, Gosforth played in the school's colours of green and white hoops, right through until the 1990s.Five years after foundation, Gosforth merged with another local club, Northumberland, and assumed their name. However, in 1887 they changed back to Gosforth.The club had a host of homes right up until the middle of the 20th century, and in the early years had to play wherever and whenever they could - with grounds at various stages including Ashburton Meadows, South Northumberland Cricket Ground and Regent Road.Gosforth's members were among the massive numbers to suffer losses during the First World War but the club reformed in 1919 despite these tragic deaths, sharing the Northumberland County Ground with traditional rivals, Northern.
