NEWCASTLE WEST END - PRE ST.JAMES PARK ERA
 
PART TWO- SUMMER 1884 To SUMMER 1886 

 
INTRODUCTION

The Two season prior to West End moving into St. James Park, saw them now playing near the Town Moor, on a ground referred to as Moor Edge off the Great North Road. They’d previously used a field Nuns Moor as they’re home ground. John Waggott continued to captain the first team. They began the season with Laws in goal, who was replaced Minnikin & by the end of season Oldham had arrived from local club Hawthorn. West End played in all blue coloured tops that season. The club now began to really establish itself ahead of other local sides like Newcastle FA, North Eastern & Rendel. Full details of that seasons’ matches now follows. West End had a good run in the Northumberland Senior Cup, making it to the semi final stage.

It is possible more matches could still emerge with gurher research as what we have recorded here is 22 matches, won 16, drew 2 & lost 4. The West End Club’s annual dinner held on May 1st.1885, indicated in their review of the clubs activities that they had played 25 matches, won 20, drew 3 & lost 2. The differences in the number of games lost can accounted for in the disputed scores. These Stats. show that all the missing games they won & must have from planned fixtures; which were as follows:
JAN.17th.1885 v NEWTON.
FEB.7th.1885 v NEWCASTLE RANGERS.

William Tiffin was elected as the first team captain, with Welford as vice captain. Overall the meeting concluded that the club was in a good financial position, ‘with a substantial balance in hand’.

1885-86 SEASON
 
WEST END 1ST TEAM
 
This would be the West End club’s final season at the Moor Edge Ground off the North Road, before moving in 1886 to the ‘first field North of Brandling Park. This short term arrangement would come to an end that summer when the club would move into the vacant St. James Park.  The Northumberland FA produced a handbook that year, recording all the clubs now affiliated under its ‘umbrella’. West End were noted as playing ‘Red & Black Jerseys & Hose, with White Knickers’ that season, & that their secretary was John Barker (Junior) 26 Cockran Street, New Benwell, Newcastle. Barker was more influential on the playing field & became a regular in the side. He had previously been with Drysdale & would remain with West End until 1891; gaining a benefit match, before joining rivals East End. West End’s rivalry with East End grew that season, they suffered a heavy defeat to them in a friendly challenge match, but did manage to knock them out of the Northumberland Senior Cup. A new arrival in the first team was J.W. Angus from Scotland. He went to play for Everton & Gainsborough Trinity.

For the first half of the season West End tried to continue to use the Moor Edge.
