Preview: Everywhere We Go at South Shields Customs House

Appeal For Memorabilia To Use In Football Play 

Everywhere We Go
South Shields Customs House
Wednesday 22nd - Saturday 25th May 2019

Wembley Way was a sea of claret and blue when South Shields FC reached the FA Vase final in 2017 – and emerged victorious. Now the writers of a new play charting the historic win are appealing for fans to donate their flags and banners to help recreate the amazing scenes on stage.

Boyle Yer Stotts are bringing their latest production, Everywhere We Go, to The Customs House, from Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th May 2019.

It tells the story of South Shields FC’s road to Wembley and subsequent takeover of the capital by more than 15,000 supporters, through the eyes of four fans, played by Wayne Miller, Craig Richardson, Luke Maddison and Jill Dellow.  The play has been written by Dale Meeks and Iain Cunningham in celebration of the club’s achievement and what it meant for the town as a whole.

The then Northern Division 1 side lifted the trophy after beating Cleethorpes Town FC 4-0 and went on to win back-to-back promotions in 2017 and 2018. They are currently playing in the Northern Premier League Premier Division.

Dale, who will also be directing, said: “We are taking a multi-media approach to the set design and we would love to include some flags and banners from the fans. We are going to put them up on the stage and they are going to form the backdrop to the show.  “So if you want to be involved, get your banners to us!”

Banners can be dropped off at The Customs House and will be returned after the show if you leave your name, address and telephone number.

Tickets for Everywhere We Go, priced from £14, are available from the box office on (0191) 454 1234 or online at
