JARROW ROOFING BOLDON COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION. County affiliation: Durham
Jarrow Roofing play in the Northern League Division Two and were formed for the season 1987-88 beginning to play in the South Tyne Senior league. When this league broke up at the end of their first season Roofing moved to the Tyneside Amateur League. During their time in the Amateur League they won the Bill Dixon Cup and The League Challenge Shields and were also runners up in the Gateshead Charity Shields and the The League. In the season 1991-92 they moved to the Wearside League after developing their new ground at Boldon C.A. Sports Club. At the end of that season they were promoted to Division One as Runners Up.
In the season 1995/96 they were runners up in Division One and as Marske the champions did not have ground facilities in place Roofing were promoted to the Northern League Division Two. They were promoted at the end of that season to Division One as joint runners up and also won the Craven Cup at their first attempt. Jarrow Roofing remained in Division One until 2007/08 when they were relegated after finishing 22nd. In Division 2 they finished 16th in 2008/09. In the 2009/10 season Roofing finished 3rd and were promoted back the Northern League Division One. 2010/11 Jarrow Roofing maintained their place in Division One after finishing 19th but were relegated last season. In the last two pre seasons Jarrow Roofing have taken part in the charity event ‘Tyne & Wear Summer Cup’ and won both years.
The Main Sponsor for Jarrow Roofing Boldon Community Association FC to give the club its full title is Mr Richard McLoughlin the Managing Director of Jarrow Roofing Co. (Richie) to his friends has over 35 years experience in the Roofing business. Richie has always been involved with Football, initially as a Sunday League player with a Local Clubs araound South Tyneside. Richie had a vision of Sponsoring a club that could play a bit and move on through Saturday Football.
Hence Jarrow Roofing BCA F.C in 1988.
Richie sought the help of friend Brian Marshall who was Chairman of a Local Community Association in Boldon Colliery where there was a bit of land that perhaps could just hold a Football ground to set the ball rolling. Richie began to use weekends and borrowed machinery to build a ground after Brian had persuaded his Committee that it was a viable project. The ground slowly took shape and promotion to the Northern League Divison Two was won via the Wearside league.
