In March 1930 South Shields Adelaide Association Football Club relocated from Horsley Hill to Redheugh Park in Gateshead. The club was thus renamed Gateshead FC. In 1937 a greyhound company became a co-tenant of Redheugh Park and the stadium was revamped. A Gateshead League match attracted 20,752 spectators. On 28 May 1960, Gateshead were voted out of the League. Greyhound racing finished in 1966. In 1971 the non-League football club moved to Gateshead International Stadium. In 1973 the stadium was demolished. Today part of the site is occupied by a Powerleague five-a-side football centre.
