WATCH: North Shields FC’s FA Vase victory parade

Hundreds of supporters turned out on the streets of North Shields and Tynemouth on Friday night to applaud North Shields FC as they paraded the FA Vase in an open-top bus.

The players and club officials were cheered all along the route as people came out of their houses and the pubs to show their support and congratulate the team.

The Robins won the national competition with a 2-1 extra-time win over Derbyshire side Glossop North End 2-1.

Shields had won the competition in its former name, the FA Amateur Cup, at the old Wembley back in 1969.

This time around more than 5,000 supporters made the long journey from North Tyneside to the capital to cheer the Robins to victory.

And Friday night’s victory parade saw the Shieldsmen thanked for ‘Putting the pride back into north east football’.
