2022/23 Isuzu FA Trophy Final

History will be made at Wembley on Sunday afternoon when Gateshead and FC Halifax Town meet in the FA Trophy Final.

It will be the first time that two “Phoenix” clubs have ever contested a final.

I wasn’t aware Gateshead were a phoenix club.

Formed in 1977 - the original club who played in the football league were called Gateshead United.

The original club finished eighth in the Northern Premier League in the 1976/77 season and were then dissolved at the end of that season and a new club - Gateshead were formed which is now the current club.
